ByBox to expand collection locker network

ByBox to expand collection locker network

The company plans to set up additional banks of electronic lockers at selected railway stations within the M25 and around London following a deal with Network Rail.

The move follows a successful trial of the myByBox drop boxes at Victoria station where online shoppers can elect to have parcels from any retailer delivered to a locker instead of their home or workplace.

The company, which delivers 365 days a year, says it has achieved a 99.63% delivery rate across the whole year.  Founded in 2008, it currently delivers 20 million parcels a year to its network of 18,000 drop boxes in 1,350 locations across the UK.

Stuart Miller, chief executive and co-founder of ByBox, said: “The traditional delivery model that concentrates deliveries Monday to Friday, with premium charges for next day delivery, is outdated and needs to change."

Miller added: “We want to provide a service for people who love internet shopping but hate waiting in for parcels. It’s as simple as that.”
