In addition, to further reduce the carbon footprint of the ‘last-mile’ of deliveries, zero-emission electric cars are used in the deliveries to the partner cities. We are also installing innovative air-purifying paver blocks at new parcel locker locations, in addition to introducing autonomous parcel lockers, powered by solar energy.”
“We receive a high volume of customer requests to install parcel lockers closer to them. This is why we have focused efforts towards developing our network in smaller towns and villages. Parcel lockers are being welcomed with enthusiasm from customers. as The lockers solves many problems experienced by local communities, where residents often need to drive several kilometers to access their nearest postal point. InPost enables local communities to conveniently send parcels and order goods from retailers located further away.
