Meeting the demands of high-volume parcel deliveries in higher and further education
How technology can improve parcel management within universities, halls of residence and student accommodation
Online shopping continues to grow apace with online representing a huge 36 per cent of retail sales in November 20201 at a value of £3.25 billion2. Such a high level of online retail is contributing to unprecedented growth in business to consumer parcel shipments and the 2.8 billion items delivered in the UK in 2019/20 according to Ofcom3.
It follows that a substantial number of parcels are now regularly delivered to universities, colleges and independent boarding schools.
This paper explores the challenge of increasing parcel deliveries to students at their place of study or accommodation, the impact it can have on staff and students, and how electronic track and trace with secure package storage can help turn the situation around.
