On March 21, 2019, the SwipBox Infinity solution was launched in Denmark under the name Nærboks – Danish for nearby locker. This marked the beginning of a dense network of parcel lockers that will bring convenience to the Danish people. During the first six months, experiences will be gathered in a pilot
project in Kolding and Sonderborg, to plan for the further rollout.
Nærboks is for anyone that wants an easy and convenient way to pick up their parcels. It’s a new delivery option in Denmark that consists of a dense network of SwipBox Infinity parcel lockers, which are controlled by apps that communicate with the parcel locker via Bluetooth. The network is agnostic, which means that any interested logistics provider can choose to be a part of it and deliver parcels through the parcel lockers. The vision is to have 10,000 parcel lockers all over the country so that a Nærboks is always nearby. This makes it possible for all Danes to walk or take their bike to pick up their parcels, no need for starting the car and they can simply choose a parcel locker that’s on their daily route.
The setup of the SwipBox Infinity parcel lockers is easy and fast. As a matter of fact, setting up a city-wide network of parcels lockers can be done highly efficiently. Sonderborg is a great example – 40 parcel lockers were installed in the city and surrounding area in just one day! The further
rollout will start during fall 2019 and continue in 2020.
In Denmark, an app has been designed specifically for Nærboks, which is used by some of the involved carriers.
