APCOA PARKING (APCOA) and the Swedish shipping service Instabox have entered a partnership with the aim to make the everyday life of Danes easier and less time-consuming.
With the new partnership between APCOA and Instabox, Danes will now be able to pick up parcels directly from the parking lot and thereby save not only valuable time but also unnecessary extra kilometers to the nearest manned pick-up point which altogether will contribute to a better urban life. The partnership between APCOA and Instabox is the latest contribution to APCOA URBAN HUBS, securing Danes convenience-solutions in one place. A concept where you besides parking and picking up packages also can get your car window fixed and rent electric scooters to get you to the final destination.
Instabox delivers parcels from some of Denmark's most popular e-commerce sites and more merchants are joining continuously. The roll out of parcel lockers is also ongoing with rapid speed and will have a coverage of more than 90 percent of Danes in 2022.
“We are happy to team up with APCOA PARKING and further expand our network of lockers in Denmark. APCOA’s nationwide concept Urban Hubs fits perfectly with our strategy of having our smart automated parcel lockers located where people pass everyday to create the most uncomplicated shipping experience. With our service, Danes can enjoy the freedom of choosing when, where and by whom a parcel is collected”, says David Lundqvist, Chief Commercial Officer at Instabox.
At APCOA there’s also excitement and expectations for the partnership. Dan Kirk, Head of Marketing, Business Development & Consumer Relations in APCOA PARKING says: “We are very pleased with adding Instabox to our list of partnerships so we can provide Danes with even more options to get errands done straight from the parking lot. Our goal is to gather as many of the Danes’ needs as possible in one place, so that the valuable spare time people have, is not used on running errands all over town. This is a good step on the way. Additionally, this will contribute to decreasing heavy traffic in the bigger cities, a win win for all.”
The first two Instaboxes are up and running. One is placed in Vejle and the other in the center of Copenhagen at the popular Axel Towers. Axel Towers houses an entire Urban Hubs area containing both E-charge, XXL-parking, RYDS bilglas and now Instabox. More Instaboxes will be installed all over Denmark within the next couple of months.
