Dansk Supermarked Group Introduces Digital Parcel Lockers
Dansk Supermarked Group has installed new Send&Hent ('send and download') digital parcel lockers at 365 of its Netto and Bilka stores across Denmark.
In partnership with system supplier SwipBox and logistics company Bring, Dansk Supermarked Group says that the new service will provide its customers with a convenient way of sending parcels, without the need for queuing.
The new digital solution allows consumers to organise postage online, before bringing their package to an in-store terminal. The package is then delivered to another terminal of choice, where the recipient can pick it up.
Since the terminals are located in Netto and Bilka stores, the retailer added that consumers will benefit from long opening hours and convenient parking facilities.
"We know that convenience is the most important factor for Danes when it comes to package mail," said Kenneth Nielsen, executive vice president for E-Commerce and Digital at Dansk Supermarked Group.
"With Send&Hent, Danes can easily and quickly send packages to each other"
Send&Hent is available at selected stores now, allowing customers to send packages of up to 20kg in weight, within 1-3 working days.
