Evri becomes first courier to host Quadient’s Drop Box and Printer capabilities

Evri has teamed up with tech firm Quadent to become the first courier service to host its new Drop Box and Printer capabilities for its smart lockers.

The additional features help to enable shoppers to easily drop off parcels, with the added ability to print shipping labels if needed.

Evri is the first of four international carriers that have joined the Quadient smart locker open network in the UK.

The offer currently accounts for about 300 locker stations in operation, with plans to reach 5,000 units in the coming years at the pace of about 200 new locations per month.

“The introduction of our fully integrated Drop Box with optional Printer in our carrier-agnostic network makes us unique to the market,” Quadient VP parcel locker solutions Ian Caminsky said.

“Quadient is leveraging its long standing experience in Japan, France, the US and the UK to bring to market innovations that focus on creating operational efficiencies and eliminating time consuming processes.”

“We are honoured to have Evri as our first integrated carrier to use this new feature to easily manage their first mile flows and deliver exceptional customer experiences to online shoppers.”

Evri head of out of home Kath Gill added: “We’re delighted to expand our out of home network with Quadient’s smart locker network, taking advantage of new locker technology.

“It will increase the convenience of sending by allowing customers to print a label directly from the locker 24/7, which is great for customers who can’t print at home and means that Quadient’s locker network offers the same services as our ParcelShops.”

“The Drop Box functionality provides a quick and simple way for small businesses to send multiple parcels in one go and maximises the number of parcels that can be handled at a single locker location each day.”

In the coming months, Quadient will make the Drop Box and Printer available to retailers and other carriers across Europe and in North America.
