REFRIGERATED LOCKERS FOR REFRIGERATED DELIVERIES
It is no secret that refrigerated deliveries are on the rise and growing every year. According to a report cited by CNBC, online grocery spending is projected to make up 20% of the total U.S. food and beverage market share by 2025. Parcel Pending recognized this emerging trend and therefore, was the first company to bring refrigerated lockers to the multifamily market. Our refrigerated lockers have many applications, including the preservation of food and beverages, medications, flowers, and cosmetics.
We are proud to now offer our refrigerated lockers to universities, retail spaces, commercial offices, and our apartment and multifamily customers. Our lockers can be cooled to 35 to 44 degrees, allowing temperature-sensitive items to stay fresh longer than allowed by the standard dry ice or gel packs used by online retailers.Read more
After monitoring all of the packages that have been delivered through our systems, we have found that, on average, deliveries remain in our lockers for 16 hours. Temperature-sensitive deliveries often will perish within this timeframe. With the rising popularity of refrigerated deliveries, properties should proactively approach this trend. That’s why Parcel Pending offers smart refrigerated locker configurations to preserve refrigerated deliveries until they are ready to be picked up.
Our lockers are also the perfect solution for retailers that sell temperature-sensitive items. Buy online, pick up in store (BOPUS) options are becoming widely adopted by consumers. With our refrigerated lockers, these in-store pickups are easy—and don’t involve your associates. Once an order is fulfilled, the item can be placed in one of our lockers and customers can pick it up at their convenience without the concern of it perishing.
