Deutsche Post has opened its 5,000th public parcel locker (“Packstation”)

Deutsche Post was the first company on the German market to introduce the “Packstation” service back in 2003. With 5,000 machines in operation, it now runs a unique nationwide parcel locker network with a total of around 500,000 compartments.

Thomas Geisel, mayor of Düsseldorf said: “Especially in times of the Corona virus pandemic, the Packstation is a very useful device. It replaces the direct contact between parcel deliverer and recipient, thus eliminating possible source of infection. And it is also a great alternative to home delivery, especially for working people.”
