InPost has deployed its 6,000th locker in the UK at a Sainsbury’s in Chiswick, London.
The company has announced that it reflects the ‘significant demand’ it experiences from consumers and retailers for out-of-home (OOH) delivery options. In the third quarter of 2023, parcel volumes across InPost’s UK network rose to 13.4 million, a 128% increase from the same period in 2022.
Michael Rouse, CEO of InPost International, said retailers are “reaping the benefits” of InPost when looking for cost efficiencies, and consumers are “increasingly” turning to InPost for fast delivery and return options.
He added: “The scale of demand for our services across the country has been incredible, and we work tirelessly to innovate and expand our offering to meet this every day. For landlords that partner with us, we turn empty space into footfall and revenue drivers, as well as attracting a new and often younger demographic of customers.”
The news follows InPost acquiring a minority stake in logistics company Menzies Distribution to help its parcel locker service scale at speed, providing deliveries for over 360 days a year.
Plus, the lock provider recently launched its ‘InPost Shop’, a parcel pick-up service for Vinted customers, which complements its parcel locker network, as demand for OOH options among 18–30-year-olds surges.
