Earlier this month Swiss Post installed its 100th My Post 24 terminal. It has 172 compartments, making it the biggest parcel terminal in Switzerland.
This particular bank of lockers is in Berne-Bümpliz, and serves a neighbourhood of 11,000 households. The parcel lockers are available 24 hours a day.
These parcel lockers offer more than just parcel collection. Customers can post parcels and registered letters, use the lockers temporarily (e.g. for storing shopping),
Swiss Post installed the first My Post 24 terminal at the end of 2013, and aims to have 200 terminals by 2020.
Terminals which have seen little use will be moved to busier locations.
“We've analysed the My Post 24 terminal situation and have found that our customers closest to Swiss Post branches benefit most from this service”, says Thomas Baur, Head of PostalNetwork and Member of Executive Management at Swiss Post.
Usage figures for the terminals are continuing to rise, according to Swiss Post.
