TfL to roll out InPost lockers across network

Transport for London is to roll out sixty new InPost lockers across its network over the next three months.

The roll out follows a trial installation of the company’s parcel lockers across six locations.

25 of the new lockers have already been installed, with this number doubling by the end of summer.

The network of lockers are designed to provide a greener and more convenient way to collect and return parcels.

InPost said that once the network is fully operational, it will reduce last mile deliveries, with the capacity to save 193 tonnes in carbon emissions annually, the equivalent of taking 48,000 cars of London’s roads a year.

“We are pleased to be working with InPost as they increase the number of parcel lockers available across the capital,” said Nigel Pickup, head of commercial property at TfL. “When more people begin to return to the network safely and responsibly in line with guidance, these lockers will offer a convenient way for them to pick up deliveries as part of their everyday journeys and help reduce delivery vehicle trips across London. It is one of the many ways that we are working with innovative companies, such as InPost, generate revenue to reinvest into the transport network.”

Jason Tavaria, CEO at InPost UK said: “We are proud to partner with TfL to support InPost’s aim of leading a greener way to shop online with an ambition to drastically reduce last mile deliveries in the capital. This is at a time where the capital is gearing up to gradually and safely reopen. InPost is helping stations across the capital act as hubs serving the local communities that surround them by offering a genuinely convenient and easily accessible way to collect deliveries and return items, as part and parcel of their usual journey”.
