There is an obvious reason why the Venipak team is expanding its parcel locker network – it is proved to be one of the best ways for a successful delivery. To avoid a shortage of lockers in convenient locations, we plan to install as many as 250 terminals in Lithuania, 200 in Latvia, and 150 in Estonia.
If you are still wondering whether to include this delivery method in your e-store, the Venipak team shares the main benefits of parcel lockers.
Parcel locker delivery has a greater chance of successful delivery. Instead of entering an exact residential or work address, one only needs to pick the most convenient pick-up point from a list of parcel lockers. This allows avoiding misdeliveries, and the customers can enjoy their purchase in time.
SECURITY OF SHIPMENTS
Parcel lockers store consignments for several days and ensure that the goods will be safe not only from rain but from theft too. The locker opens only when an exact code that the customer received is entered. For maximum security, the parcel lockers are constantly monitored by security cameras.
One of the main advantages of parcel lockers is that recipients do not have to commit to being at home when the parcel is delivered. As the consignments are stored in the lockers for several days and are available 24/7, there is no rush to pick them up. That is especially important for customers who move a lot during the day and are available only after working hours. The parcel can also be picked up by a friend or relative if the recipient decides to share the code with them.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOLUTION
Consumers are increasingly opting for environmentally friendly solutions – parcel delivery is no exception. In contrast to home or work delivery, couriers do not need to travel to hundreds of locations, reducing CO2 emissions significantly. Meanwhile, the recipients can select a parcel locker available on their way from work or just a few minutes from their location on foot, reducing CO2 emissions even more. That means that delivery to parcel lockers is an ecological alternative.
SIMPLE AND CONVENIENT RETURN SHIPPING
Parcel lockers simplify the return shipping process if the received goods do not meet the recipients’ needs. That allows customers to avoid dealing with couriers, queues at the post office, or going to the physical store. It also lets the recipients make returns at times most convenient for them. The process is made even easier by Venipak return stickers, which e-shops can include with each consignment. When making a return, the customers only need to stick it on the box and scan it at any parcel locker. After that, the parcel is placed in the opened cabinet, completing the return.
With the growth of e-commerce, the demand for parcel lockers is growing rapidly too. It is an increasingly popular solution for consumers to receive goods ordered online. By providing your customers with the most convenient solutions, we will ensure that they will return and shop again!
