SwipBox wins DPD for Polish parcel locker network
SwipBox’s carrier-neutral ‘open’ parcel locker network in Poland is growing with the addition of DPD as a delivery partner.
DPD is the third parcel operator to deliver parcels to consumers through the locker network. SwipBox launched the network in 2018 with DHL as the first carrier. National postal operator Poczta Polska started using the SwipBox lockers in 2019.
This means that it is now possible for Polish consumers to pick up parcels from three different logistics providers in the same parcel locker network, offering more convenience and flexibility, the Danish locker technology company pointed out.
The SwipBox parcel lockers can be found at several locations across Poland, including post offices and retail stores such as Biedronka and Carrefour. The network consists of the manufacturer’s Classic parcel lockers, which are also being operated in many other countries worldwide such as Finland, Australia and Denmark.
Michal Czechowski, Managing Director of SwipBox Poland, commented: “The agreement with DPD Poland is another milestone for our parcel locker network in Poland. We believe that parcel lockers open to all logistics players on the market provide the ultimate convenience for end users. We see great demand for this type of service in general and are delighted to welcome a leading brand such as DPD to our network in Poland.”
Rafał Nawłoka, CEO of DPD Poland, added: “These automatic parcel machines complement the DPD pickup network and make the DPD last mile service even more flexible. We have successfully tested the SwipBox lockers, which increase the efficiency of our collection network and are delighted that they can already be used by the inhabitants of the biggest cities in Poland.”
SwipBox describes itself as “a software company with a hardware solution that enables infrastructural innovation”. It has installed intelligent parcel lockers designed and produced in Denmark in more than 50 countries, with dense networks in selected countries.
