In the case of the Republic of Korea, more than 10 million parcels are delivered every day according to the statistics. Among these more than 1/3 are not delivered directly to the customer face-to-face. A Korean IT company has developed a parcel automation machine, in order to facilitate the non-face-to-face delivery.
The company’s product is a multi-functioning IoT parcel station (locker) that offers various services such as storage, parcel receiving and sending, including laundry pick-up. For example, the IoT parcel station has a platform linked to an online shopping mall. Thus, when a customer orders product from the online shopping mall, it is delivered to the locker. The IoT lockers have been installed at metro stations, public street, apartments, universities, army bases, hotels, and tourist centers and etc.
With the use of the company's IoT parcel station, customers no longer need to wait for a courier service, meaning they do not have to hesitate to go out or need to be disturbed with their work. At a convenient time, the customer can find parcels based on the text messages she/he received from the IoT parcel station installed at the first-floor entrance.
Unnecessary complaints between security guards and residents that occur as a result of hundreds of parcels delivery per day can be dramatically reduced.
According to the statistics, dealing with delivery, such as receiving parcels, takes up to 30% of security guard’s total duties. By using the IoT parcel station that assures safe and convenient delivery services, security guards can concentrate on their original duties of security service. This results in an efficient manpower management as well as cost reduction by cutting numbers of unnecessary elevator use.
