InPost announces Manchester transport pair-up

InPost, the Polish logistics company, has announced a new partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) for its parcel lockers to be installed at bus and Metrolink stations across Greater Manchester.

Supporting TfGM’s green initiative to reduce carbon output, the pair-up will see up to 28 parcel lockers rolled out across the Greater Manchester area by the end of the year, with 13 already installed and more planned for 2023.

“TfGM has adopted an approach to develop new sustainable revenue streams through commercial partnerships for reinvestment into transport services,” said Mike Mellor, head of commercial at TfGM. “By creating partnerships like this one, we’re on our way to creating a truly integrated transport that supports multi-modal journeys and puts customer convenience at the heart of what we do.”

Available 24/7, InPost said the new lockers will provide a convenient, accessible way for people to pick up or return parcels as part of their daily commute across the TfGM network.

“We’re rapidly growing our network of 4,000+ parcel lockers in the UK and the partnership with TfGM marks another significant milestone for our business,” said Michael Rouse, chief executive of InPost.

Rouse continued: “The new lockers will expand the breadth of parcel and post services available in the Greater Manchester area, meaning that busy commuters can avoid waiting in for parcel deliveries and skip the queues when it comes to making returns; instead, they can use our lockers while on the go.”
