Lockers are an invaluable asset to the ecommerce sector of the retail industry. Online retail businesses need lockers for various purposes, including for their own staff at distribution centres, warehouses and call centres.

In terms of employee lockers, they can be placed in staff room and rest room areas for the safe storage of personal possessions such as mobile phones, car keys and coats, or as convenient storage for uniforms. Crown Sports Lockers can also provide associated items of staff room furniture, such as seating.

Lockers are also a modern, innovative means of delivering and returning goods purchased in the ecommerce sector. Online retailers such as Amazon have introduced a new delivery method, using self-service lockers for the collection and return of their parcels.

The lockers are located in places such as business parks, libraries, shopping centres, convenience stores and even at some petrol stations. With almost 2,000 such lockers in the UK already installed by Amazon, it’s only a matter of time before other e-tail businesses follow suit – Hermes, GLS and DPD have already launched a similar system.

When a customer’s parcel is delivered to the locker, they will receive a personal pick-up code and instructions regarding the locker’s location and the times it is open. When they arrive to collect their parcel, they can enter the code to access the locker and collect their delivery.
