With internet shopping growing more common by the day, the number of parcels being delivered is skyrocketing. In 2021, the average UK family has been receiving 4.5 parcels per month – and this is before the Christmas rush had begun (source: Bringme Delivery Index). When they’re being delivered to residential buildings, they often pile up in entry ways as they await collection. They force people to wait at home for their deliveries to come, make them risk loss or theft if they don’t stay home, and inevitably result in entryways becoming a cluttered eyesore.
Thankfully, there’s an easy solution. Automated parcel management is quickly becoming the new standard. And no wonder: all it requires is the simple installation of a smart parcel box and an app. For those who want a complete digital concierge, a smart bell can also be incorporated. Quick, efficient and effective, automated parcel management makes life easier for residents and building managers alike.
