Quadient offers residential lockers in France
Quadient has launched its ‘smart parcel locker system’ for the residential market in France after last year’s introduction in the UK.
The French-based company said this new milestone marks its second international expansion into the residential market since the acquisition in 2019 of US market leader Parcel Pending. Quadient successfully adapted the solution to expand its reach to the European market and launched the lockers in the UK last July.
Parcel Pending by Quadient smart lockers are specifically designed to provide secure and automated management of incoming packages in residential buildings, improving operational efficiency for property managers and enhancing resident satisfaction, the company explained.
Quadient CEO Geoffrey Godet said: “I’m proud to see that our teams have successfully integrated Parcel Pending into Quadient. By combining Parcel Pending’s expertise in the residential market, as well as leveraging Quadient’s patented innovations and existing services and supply chain capabilities, the teams have now expanded the scope of Parcel Pending to the residential markets in France and the UK.
“We are well engaged in our journey to automate and transform last mile delivery by building large and open networks of smart parcel lockers, to be installed in every building and every store in cities around the world,” he emphasized.
Driven by e-commerce booming and more shoppers demanding solutions for convenient and safe parcel retrieval, Quadient earlier this month announced its base of smart locker systems had surpassed 13,000 worldwide, making the company one of the largest global providers of parcel locker solutions thanks to its expertise and leadership across the residential, retail, corporate and carrier markets.
