WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE EXPERIMENT BY POSTNORD AND SWIPBOX?
The Nærboks parcel lockers, operate as an open network, which means that several logistics providers can deliver parcels to the same lockers.
Nærboks dont have a screen but can be opened with an app on the customer’s phone, which communicates with the parcel locker using Bluetooth. The parcel lockers run on batteries and are easy to install as there is no need for an external electricity source or an internet connection. This makes them easy to scale and reduces the cost of installation.
1. Don’t add screens to things - people carry a screen with them all the time
2. Sometimes a business can only work if you add in something that is “free” - like the screen, power and network of people’s phones
Let’s do it TOGETHER!
