SwipBox parcel boxes to be rolled out across Israel
Parcel lockers of the Danish parcel terminal operator SwipBox will be rolled out in Israel, with ORIAN, part of the DB Schenker network, to install the first 100 lockers in selected cities in the beginning of 2022 as part of the first pilot phase.
In the next stage of the rollout, the parcel locker network will also be opened to other logistics providers than DB Schenker.
The SwipBox Infinity lockers are operated by Bluetooth via apps and run on batteries which makes them easy and fast to install as there is no need for an external electricity source or an instant internet connection. They will be located at housing associations, gas stations, shopping malls etc.
ORIAN operates as a logistics partner for several logistics companies in Israel. It also owns and operates the network of SwipBox Infinity parcel lockers in Israel.
Itamar Lamdan, Businesss Development Manager at ORIAN, said: “With the SwipBox Infinity lockers we are going to offer a user-friendly and innovative service to serve online shoppers in Israel as well as all carriers operating in the Israeli market. E-commerce is booming, and with this new generation of parcel lockers we can get closer to where people live and work and thereby meet the increasing demand for last-mile delivery options from the market.”
Mark Yeoman, Commercial Development Manager at SwipBox, commented: “Our partnership with ORIAN shows the strong demand for the SwipBox Infinity solution in the market. With thousands of Infinity lockers in Europe, we now continue our expansion outside Europe, which is the natural next step for us. We are happy that this step is being taken with an innovative partner like ORIAN.”
