bpost is piloting the innovative SwipBox Infinity parcel lockers in the city
of Mechelen, in Belgium. The parcel lockers were chosen because they provide a
convenient and sustainable first and last mile solution.
This pilot will gather user experiences about the bluetooth enabled SwipBox
parcel lockers, define what's the ideal distance (for an end user) from a parcel
locker and assess how lean parcel lockers complement bpost's manned PUDO
network and contribute to less congested cities.
