    InPost parcel lockers head to Central America and the Caribbean!

     

    Integer.pl Group, owner of the largest network of parcel lockers worldwide, has closed a deal on selling 10 of its revolutionary terminals to Aeropost, the region’s leading e-commerce logistics provider. In the months to come, the first parcel lockers will be deployed in Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Guatemala, followed by rollouts in Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, Panama and the Dominican Republic. The entire project for the Miami based company calls for launching over 100 innovative machines across 30 countries and islands, revolutionizing U.S. to Latin America cross-border trade in the region.

     

    The innovative devices made by the Polish Group allow for the independent collecting and dispatching of parcels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The latest version of the parcel locker will provide Aeropost customers with a self service option to pick up their package 24 hours a day/7 days a week and in as little time as 7 seconds, thanks to QR codes and CodeWise technology.

     

    “The fact that another crucial global player has decided to collaborate with our organization proves how rapidly InPost parcel lockers are revolutionizing the postal and courier market worldwide. Building on the successful and effective implementations with Postal Operators, including Australia Post, Saudi Post, Correos Chile, Íslandspóstur, Cyprus Post, Eesti Post and the Estonian Post, where as many as 50% of parcels coming from auctions and e-stores are processed by our terminals, I am convinced that these devices will also perfectly match the needs of Central America and the Caribbean, reducing operational costs and improving customer convenience” - said Rafał Brzoska, CEO of Integer.pl Group.

     

    Aeropost is a cross border commerce solution for LATAM customers shopping online in the USA.

The first deal encompasses a provision of 18 parcel lockers, out of which 8 have to be delivered until end 2013 and the remaining 10 units until end 2014.

     

    In addition, Integer.pl Group develops its own network of InPost parcel lockers. Until end 2013, the Romanian market will be supplied with 200 devices holding the brand of the Polish operator. This is the first stage of expansion of revolutionary terminals addressed to that area. In total, by the end 2014, as many as 500 InPost parcel lockers will have been installed in Romania.

     

    About 2,750 parcel machines - available in various business models - will be operating worldwide by the end of 2013., Terminals have been already established in 15 countries worldwide - it took barely 2 years to conquer not only Poland but also Saudi Arabia, Australia, Chile, the UK, Ireland, Island as well as Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Estonia, Russia, Cyprus, Slovakia and Czech Republic.

     

    At present, the company is working on acquisition of nearly 6000 locations dedicated to subsequent devices. New parcel machines will be installed in 15 additional countries: France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Romania and Bulgaria, Russia and Spain. Over the next 4-5 years InPost parcel lockers will also appear in the Americas and in Asia. The company has started identifying locations for planned investment.

The entire project may eventually reach up to 1 billion euros.
