Parcel lockers crowded between shops or blocks are standard in big cities. And this is just the beginning. In addition to today’s InPost, the Polish region will also experience the invasion of vending machines such as Swipbox, Poczta Polska, Orlen and Aliexpress.
From 400 to 50,000 Swipbox will build parcel machines in the next 4-5 years. -Our goal is to build a dense network of small devices. In an interview with Business Insider, Michał Czechowski said that taking Scandinavia as an example, our Infinity machines are 300-400 meters apart in densely populated places.
So far, there are about 220 of them, some of which have been specifically delivered to Poczta Polska. In turn, the post office itself plans to have a total of at least 500 such points-as many as 2,000 by the end of next year 2021.
When it comes to state-owned companies, Orlen also hopes to enter the parcel machine revolution.already In February, Daniel Obajtek announcedIn the next two years, 2,000 Orlenian slot machines will be manufactured in Poland.
-Orlen announced that it will build a building of approximately 2,000 square meters. The receiving point, taking into account the number of stations, means that this function will be received per second on average.Therefore, I see it more as the beginning of a pilot program, which will allow me to evaluate the profitability of this solution-said Sascha Stockem, CEO of Nethansa In an interview with Money.pl
AliExpress also appeared in the background, which has been flooding Poland with cheap goods for a long time.In warsaw “Alimats” began to appear. The Money.pl website also reported that Chinese logistics giant Cainiao will also participate in the competition, and their first 300 machines have already been shipped to the country. With the revision of the construction law in September 2020, under this law, you can build parcel lockers without obtaining a permit, and there will surely be more people.
progress? In many ways, yes. Only ten years ago, it was mainly the postal service. Although the express service is fast, it is expensive and few people can afford it. Nowadays, large packages and books finally appear in the wrapping machine. In addition, during the pandemic, InPost applicationNon-contact collection of packaging is allowed.
But what is certain is that many people have come across the term “paczkmatozy” and pictures of giant automata. These pictures did not adapt to the landscape, but simply disfigured them with their size or any settings.
