InPost has reached the number of 20,000 Paczkomaty devices in Poland, the company announced. There are over 3 million lockers in them.
“The Polish network of our devices already has 20,000! We have come a long way from device number 1 to device number 20,000. During this time, we have revolutionized the Polish courier services market, introducing a completely new quality in Poland, which is now being implemented in European e-commerce. Currently, we are focusing on expansion on European markets, where most of our new devices go, but we do not forget about the Polish market. We definitely did not say the last word when it comes to the number of Parcel Locker devices. We will continue to develop this network, also in Poland, because our customers keep asking for new locations, although the Polish network of Paczkomaty devices is the largest infrastructure of this type in Europe,” said Rafał Brzoska, CEO, quoted in the release.
There are almost as many Parcel Lockers as there are all ATMs in our country and 4 times more than all petrol stations. Thanks to this number, 59% of Poles will find a Parcel Locker within a distance that can be covered in less than 7 minutes on foot. In urban areas, 85% of them have such or a shorter distance to the Parcel Locker, the company calculates.
“Machine number 20,000 was erected in Olsztyn at 6 Kołobrzeska Street. The area around the machine was planted with vegetation as part of the InPost Green City Program, which aims to green Polish cities in cooperation with local governments. Innovative, extensive sedum plants have been planted on the roof of the machine, thanks to which the Parcel Locker heats up less. Sedum is a biologically active surface and has the ability to drain rainwater and provide shelter to urban insects.
