Cleveron, a technology company specialising in parcel robots and lockers development, has unveiled its battery-powered outdoor parcel locker designed to be a grid-independent solution, which could reduce CO2 emissions across the last-mile sector by 70%.
Zara, H&M and Ikea are some of the retailers harnessing Cleveron’s parcel lockers currently and Arti Kütt, CEO of the company, is confident of the increasing demand for parcel lockers as a sustainable and cost-effective solution for last-mile deliveries.
“Our projections show that within a decade, 80% of last-mile deliveries in Europe will be conducted via parcel lockers, which will emerge as the preferred method among end customers,” he said.
“This approach is not only more cost-effective but also significantly more sustainable. Battery-powered parcel lockers will play a pivotal role in driving this revolution, as these can be installed basically on every street corner. Cleveron 354 is designed to directly address this challenge, offering an intelligent solution for a more sustainable world.”
Strategically placed lockers can encourage parcel collection and returns from nearby solutions, thereby reducing the number of delivery vehicles on the roads. Cleveron 354 allows companies to place lockers according to their business needs strategically.
“Implementing a locker network significantly reduces the need for home deliveries which costs rise yearly. Consumers have shown a willingness to retrieve their parcels within a comfortable 5-minute walking radius, making Cleveron 354 the best solution for network buildouts,” added Kütt.
Cleveron 354 is operational 24/7 and is manufactured to have smaller CO2 lifetime footprint, approximately twenty times smaller than traditional grid-powered lockers. Due to efficient energy management, Cleveron 354 offers the same capabilities as grid-dependent lockers, ensuring an excellent user experience.
Furthermore, the battery-powered locker is designed with user-friendliness in mind, allowing customers to retrieve their parcels by entering a code on the PIN pad, eliminating the need for a dedicated mobile application. The locker operator receives real-time updates about their parcel lockers, ensuring continuous monitoring. Cleveron 354 allows companies to expand the independent last-mile delivery network and optimise operations for efficient parcel management.
