Allegro has signed a letter of intent with the Modern-Expo company for the delivery of parcel machines. By the end of 2021, the platform intends to put 1,500 devices in Polish cities – stated in the release.
As explained, the plan is for buyers and sellers to start using 1,500 devices this year, with the first machines to be installed in Polish cities in the middle of the year. In total, the company wants to put 3,000 devices into operation in the first phase.
“As a supplement”
– We attach great importance to the speed of delivery and now about 80 percent of shipments reach the customer within 1-2 days of ordering. Our ambition is to make these deliveries even faster, cheaper and more convenient. That is why we decided to invest in our own network of parcel machines, as a supplement to the network of about 30,000 collection points and vending machines – said Grzegorz Czapski, development director at Allegro.
He added that “the new network will provide customers with even better access to these economical delivery methods and, in conjunction with Allegro’s warehouse services, which we also plan to launch this year, will create a new quality in terms of delivery comfort.”
The network of parcel machines is another investment related to logistics services announced by Allegro in 2021. In the second half of the year, a logistics center for companies selling on the platform in Adamów near Warsaw will be launched.
The largest network of parcel machines in Poland belongs to InPost, which has over 10,000 of them in our country.
In January, we informed that it wants to launch parcel picking machines in Poland AliExpress.
In October 2020 Polish Post announced that it intends to make available two thousand external parcel machines by 2022, and the number of collection points in the click & collect network is to reach over 20,000.
