FIREM Introduces Parcel Lockers to Property Portfolio
Property company, FI Real Estate Management, has introduced parcel lockers at 11 sites across its UK portfolio with a further four to follow, as part of a partnership with LockerQuest.
A mix of consumer and business parcel lockers are now available for Amazon, InPost and ByBox at FIREM-owned locations including North Point Shopping Centre in Hull and Drayton Manor Business Park in Tamworth.
A total of 280 locker compartments are available to support online shoppers at six of FIREM’s retail and office locations.
Meanwhile, the number of ByBox business lockers – used by field service engineers for collecting the parts they need for daily calls – will reach 73 metres in length when roll out is complete across FIREM’s office and industrial park sites.
The partnership with LockerQuest comes amidst increased demand for parcel lockers nationally, driven by the growth in online retail and the convenience they offer national businesses with a local presence.
The use of parcel lockers as an alternative to at-home deliveries can reduce carbon emissions by up to two thirds according to the most recent Green Last Mile Europe report.
