Parcel Port has announced delivery of the first in a series of orders of Smart Parcel Lockers at their Kitchener - Waterloo warehouse.
TORONTO, May 28, 2018 /CNW/ - "Our first shipment of our Smart Parcel Lockers are here and as part of our initial roll out have been earmarked for pilot tests with our existing partners. They will be up and running at various locations in the GTA and giving us some great insights in the upcoming weeks," stated Michael Trueman, President and CEO of Parcel Port. "We continue to fine tune the experience and we're working hard on delivering Canada's first national parcel locker network designed to initially serve express couriers, consumers and multi-unit commercial and residential property managers," said Mr. Trueman.
Parcel Port has a growing list of diverse customers that recognize the need for alternative and innovative smart parcel drop off and pickup options."Given that overall parcel delivery volumes have increased dramatically and are expected to double again in the next five years, all of the organizations we've spoken to recognize the imperative to develop last mile delivery alternatives that lower shipping costs while offering the consumer a secure and private way to receive their on-line orders. Our solution squarely addresses this while being open and courier neutral, which means our parcel locker solution works with all express couriers," stated Mr. Trueman.
Parcel Port has attracted major interest with some of the largest courier companies and property management firms in Canada and has been consigned to do pilot projects with some household names in both spaces. "Our ultimate goal and vision is to build the largest network of Smart Parcel Lockers in Canada and the US and these first lockers will go a long way in helping us set the blueprint and standard for a process that will become commonplace in the coming years."
