As growth in the e-commerce industry continues to skyrocket, more and more retailers, businesses, and property managers are relying on the convenience and security of smart locker solutions.
In office buildings, for example, electronic locker solutions provide convenient access for both delivery and office personnel. With these lockers in place, there is no need for employees to leave the workspace in order to accept a package, and no need for couriers to search out a recipient or wait for a signature. But, there is much more to these smart parcel locker solutions than just convenience –they are major time-savers as well.
Delivery personnel and payroll staff know all too well how frustrating and expensive it can be when the idle hours add up over the course of the day. “Dwell Time” is the time that a worker spends on the job, but inactive – for example, waiting for a parking spot to open up or sitting by the loading dock waiting for staff to load or unload parcels. Smart parcel locker solutions provide a designated, one-stop drop-off/pick-up point, eliminating the need to find parking or even wait at a loading ramp.
Research has indicated that by replacing traditional floor-to-floor, door-to-door deliveries with smart locker solutions, the courier service was able to reduce parcel delivery times by up to 78%. By delivering to a smart locker instead of the customer directly, courier staff no longer need to park the vehicle, go into the building, find the recipient, and wait for a signature.
The same study showed that there were zero undelivered parcels with the use of electronic locker solutions. Traditional delivery service, however, resulted in seven failed deliveries. These could be the result of stolen packages, misplaced parcels, or being unable to find someone to sign for the delivery.
