PostNord to roll out 2000 parcel collection lockers in six months

PostNord is introducing 2000 parcel collection lockers across Denmark over the next six months.

The initial roll-out will begin this year in the Danish capital Copenhagen and the city of Aarhus, with further cities to follow in 2020.

The company is working with locker technology company SwipBox on the roll-out of what is called the Naerboks locker network.

Naerboks is designed to be agnostic, allowing customers to collect parcels from any carrier. The lockers require no electricity of internet connection, making them easy to set up.

The ultimate goal is to install 10,000 lockers across the country.

The roll-out is a show of faith in the technology after PostNord trialled the technology in Kolding and Sonderborg.

Peter Kjaer Jensen, CEO of PostNord Denmark, said: “We have tested the Naerboks parcel lockers in Kolding municipality and Sonderborg municipality. The citizens in both municipalities have really welcomed the parcel lockers, so we’re ready to move forward and roll out the new parcel infrastructure across the country.

“By placing the parcel lockers close to where the Danes are and live, Naerboks will set new standards for how easy and convenient parcel delivery can be. They are open day and night – exactly when the end user will use it.”

Allan Kaczmarek, CEO of SwipBox, said: “The pilot in the two municipalities has been great and we have learned a lot. So, we are now ready to roll out the network so all Danes can use it, and we hope everyone will welcome the concept with the same enthusiasm as the citizens of Kolding and Sonderborg.”
