Online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has given its
backing to a new initiative by Irish courier firm Nightline which will
see automated parcel collection facilities built across the country.
In an effort to make it even easier and more convenient for people to get hold of
packages sent via courier, Nightline has announced plans to construct parcel
collection points, known as parcel motels, across the Republic of Ireland and
Northern Ireland. Parcel2Go, which works with a selection of the world's leading
courier companies, says the new service will be good news for customers.
According to a report by Post & Parcel, customers waiting for goods to arrive with a
courier will be able to choose to have their package delivered to a parcel motel. A
simple pin code will be sent to the customer once their package has arrived,
allowing them to gain access to the automated locker system and retrieve their
Parcel2Go's marketing director Richard Mercer said: "Technology continues to have
a profound impact on the parcel delivery industry, and this new initiative from
Nightline is a perfect example of how the leading courier companies are constantly
working to make their parcel delivery services more convenient and more relevant for customers.
"Online shopping is continuing to grow at a rapid pace, with more and more parcels
being sent out to consumers who want cheap international delivery and reliable domestic services. Providing innovative and quicker ways
for people to order parcel delivery services, track their packages and access their
goods, is key in this rapidly changing market."
The first parcel motels are set to start appearing in Dublin this June. The plan is
for around 100 facilities to be constructed in the city, before the scheme is rolled
out further afield.
