Featuring superior durability, improved weather and UV-resistance and integrated temperature controls, Parcel Pending’s outdoor lockers keep packages protected from extreme weather
Irvine, Calif. (April 28, 2021) – Parcel Pending by Quadient, the leading provider of smart locker solutions for residential, commercial, retail, and university properties in the United States and Canada, today unveiled enhanced features for its outdoor locker systems. These new features include superior durability, improved weather and UV-resistance and integrated temperature controls to keep online orders and packages safe and protected year-round, even during extreme weather like snowstorms, heat waves, high winds and heavy rain.
“With their top-of-the-line weatherproofing, industrial grade steel and a special, high-quality powder-coat finish, our outdoor lockers are designed to withstand a variety of weather conditions – from extreme heat to the frigid cold – and provide safe, secure package deliveries year-round,” stated Lori A. Torres, CEO of Parcel Pending by Quadient. “The enhanced durability and integrated air conditioner and heater built right into the locker kiosk keeps our outdoor lockers operational at all times, no matter what the weather brings. People can easily retrieve online orders and other goods at their convenience without having to come in contact with anyone and without having to worry about package theft or damage.”
Consumers are shopping online more than ever before. In fact, ecommerce experienced 10 years of growth in the first three months of 2020 and online sales (as share of total sales) are expected to increase by 25% over the next five years. But that’s not all. Consumers also are demanding contactless pick-up options. In fact, 87% of consumers prefer contact-free check-out options.
“Package management issues have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and a sudden boom in online shopping. Multifamily communities and colleges are having to deal with holiday-like package volumes year-round and retailers are overwhelmed by a surge in Buy Online, Pick Up In-store orders,” continued Torres. “This is where our high-tech, high-performing outdoor locker solutions come into play. They’re designed to maximize space while also providing a safe, secure, and contactless package pick-up option so people can pick-up their online orders and goods 24/7.”
