Pitney Bowes is expanding its lockers portfolio with the launch of ParcelPoint Smart Lockers, a new suite of robust, secure contactless locker solutions designed for business and academic locations.

The US mail and shipping technology company said the smart lockers are ideal for organizations planning the safe reopening of offices, college campuses and government agencies by ensuing that every package and asset moving across a location will be delivered safely and securely.

Powered by proprietary SaaS software, organizations can remotely manage a single locker or a fleet of lockers across locations, backed up with unrivalled local Pitney Bowes service, support and detailed analytics, the company claimed.

The ParcelPoint Smart Locker portfolio augments existing Pitney Bowes locker technologies and builds on a century of expertise in shipping and mailing, offering businesses a choice of smart locker solutions which best fit their requirements and budget, it added.

There are two locker types. Express Series smart lockers provide a sophisticated, pre-configured, easy-to-use solution built to meet evolving package and mail volume demands, which can be delivered in four weeks or less. With SendSuite® Tracking Online - Pitney Bowes SaaS parcel tracking and processing software - already integrated into the solution, Express Series lockers simplify the end-to-end package and mail management processes.

Plus Series smart lockers are modular and scalable, perfect for organizations with more complex workflows. Delivered in ten weeks or less, Plus Series lockers are individually customized to meet the unique needs of organizations with more extensive parcel workflow, asset management, or with specific space or volume requirements. They can operate standalone, without a tracking software or seamlessly integrate with SendSuite Tracking, SendSuite Tracking Online or with an organization’s existing tracking software.

“Choice and flexibility”

Kerry Caylor, Vice President, SendTech Parcel and Locker Innovation, Pitney Bowes said: “The global automated parcel locker market is expected to exceed $1.4 billion by 2027, driven by organizations looking for ways to manage the exponential growth in ecommerce and parcel volume.

“Pitney Bowes ParcelPoint Smart Lockers with powerful SaaS software make it easy for organizations to automate, streamline and digitize their parcel and mail management and deliver a user-friendly contactless pickup experience. By providing both the pre-configured and customized options, we’re giving organizations the choice and flexibility to select the smart locker solution that exactly matches their requirements and the needs of the clients they serve.”

The locker solutions are ideal for organizations with centralized mail centers which manage high volumes of parcels and physical documents, tasked with their safe, secure, effective delivery, according to the company.

Explaining how the lockers work, Pitney Bowes said that operators access the smart locker interface from their device to identify an appropriately sized available locker in a suitable location. They place the item in the locker, then an automatic alert with an access barcode is sent to the recipient who scans the barcode and retrieves the package at their convenience.

Real-time reporting and analytics ensure absolute visibility of the package’s journey throughout the process.
