Did you see parcel locker in the supermarket near the house? Maybe you already have it in your entrance? The future is now! Delivery automation business is increasingly focusing on parcel lockers instead of couriers and pick-up points: there is no need to wait for delivery at a certain time, to adapt to the work schedule of the pick-up point. No more personal contacts — cell will open upon request and promptly give the order. The era of the implementation of new delivery formats in courier services has begun — automated dispense of orders through automatic parcel lockers.
Business was convinced of the unprofitability of a large number of pickup points, adjusted to the trend towards a reduction in personal contacts, and appreciated the ease of expanding the geography of the service — installing parcel locker as close as possible to the end customer is easier than opening pick-up point and maintaining a staff.
In October 2021, the Belarusian branch of the international logistics corporation DPD (“DPD Bel” FLLC) began to implement Smartix parcel lockers. Together with the Belarusian partner SONET GROUP LLC (self-service systems integrator), Smartix team implemented all the stages from delivery to maintenance of the network of parcel lockers in the Republic of Belarus.
DPD Bel highly appreciated the convenience, functionality and performance of the Smartix software, as a result, it was decided to transfer the existing DPD network of locker’s, which previously used third-party software, to the Smartix software.
Smartix offers a full range of services for the development, supply, integration with existing systems of the customer. Commissioning and maintenance of the network of parcel lockers — all tasks are performed by Smartix specialists. The question of working with several contractors is removed and the problem of finding and organizing the combined work of different specialists and suppliers is eliminated.
As part of the DPD project, Smartix completed all the required improvements to its own software to suit the business tasks of the customer and took into account the requirements of the Belarusian legislation, integrated with DPD systems both on the side of Belarus and on the side of the parent organization in Russia, connected all the necessary Belarusian services (SMS notifications, etc.).
