Parcel deliveries are on the increase and with shopping season firmly on the horizon the amount of parcels delivered to the workplace is set to rise even further.

It's time to brace yourselves, and your reception desk. We're approaching the end of November and that means shopping season is coming. The excitement of big brand discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday leading buyers in to a whirlwind month of Christmas shopping is once again set to see workplaces around the country inundated with parcel deliveries. 

High value items that normally require a signature on delivery or ones small enough to be carried home from work tend to be the ones delivered to the work address instead of a home address. Such deliveries can put strain on office environments and with people signing for items on behalf of colleagues their safe storage or delivery isn't always guaranteed. Luckily, Quadient have two solutions to help organisations cope with the additional demands that is put on mailrooms and reception desks. 

Tracking Systems


With a tracking system you can scan and track the location of parcels within a business premises. Removing the need for manual time consuming categorisation. The recipient also receives up-to-date information on the whereabouts of their item. Particularly useful if the recipient is out of the office on the day of delivery.

Parcel Lockers


Automated Parcel lockers are an ideal solution for busy organisations to securely store large volumes of inbound parcels, taking them off the office floor.
A user interface allows customers to track their parcels, and informs them of the time of arrival, enables self-service processes that reduce the strain on administrators. As well as that, lockers remove the requirement for the extra logistics required for internal post distribution, as the delivery is kept safe until the recipient is available to collect.
With the shopping season a couple of weeks away organisations need to ensure that systems are in place to alleviate concern, stress and chaos.
