InPost adds 100 new parcel lockers at Morrisons stores
InPost, the automated parcel locker provider, has announced the expansion of its partnership with supermarket giant Morrisons, with nearly 80% of stores now hosting a locker.
Morrisons is InPost’s longest-standing supermarket provider, hosting over 290 lockers across the UK since 2014. That figure is set to rise to around 390 by the end of January 2023, allowing shoppers to conveniently send, collect and return parcels.
Jamie Winter, Procurement Director at Morrisons, commented: “At Morrisons, we always put our customers first, and are constantly looking for ways to make their lives easier. InPost parcel lockers provide them with the ultimate convenience by allowing them to pick up and return their parcels while they’re visiting our stores — instead of having to go out of their way.”
The announcement highlights the increasing interest in ‘trip-twinning’, ensuring that customers can get the most out of their visit.
The installations will be in place to support a busy January when many people may be looking to return items after the festive period. In addition to the new parcel lockers, several of InPost’s existing lockers will be extended to cater to high demand, reflecting the success of the partnership over the past eight years.
Michael Rouse, CEO at InPost International, added: “Our partnership has gone from strength to strength since 2014, and today’s announcement reflects the appetite and interest we’re seeing from consumers about the shopping experience they want.
"Critically, online shopping is here to stay – but part of delivering on this is a smooth and convenient returns experience for online purchases. That’s exactly where our lockers come in. Morrisons shoppers no longer need to make additional trips to stand in lengthy queues to return items – they can now do so while visiting the supermarket, at a time that suits them best.”
