OneRail, Quadient partner on smart lockers to enhance delivery experience
OneRail, a provider of last mile omnichannel fulfillment solutions, has partnered with Quadient, a parcel locker operator based in France, to deliver a seamless and efficient delivery experience through smart lockers.
This collaboration enables retailers to incorporate the Parcel Pending by Quadient smart locker system into their existing order fulfillment process, offering customers reliable and convenient delivery options while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of their retail locations.
Bill Catania — OneRail CEO said: “Partnering with Quadient is aligned with our mission to meet the demands of shippers to get items to consumers ever faster.
“We are thrilled to add more value to our solution that not only benefits shippers and retailers but also fleets. Adding a smart locker option to the pick-up process for drivers makes their job easier, retailers save on operational costs, and consumers receive their orders faster.”
By integrating with OneRail’s Omnipoint platform, the solution allows delivery drivers to easily pick up products from the lockers using a smartphone code scan, eliminating the need to adhere to business hour constraints or wait for retailers to locate and stage orders. This streamlined process reduces operating expenses for shippers and increases fleet velocity.
Furthermore, it frees up time for retail associates to focus on other important tasks, such as assisting customers in-store or managing crucial warehouse operations.
Quadient’s new partnership is set to revolutionize its parcel locker service, extending its availability and accessibility to leading US brands across diverse industries. This collaboration brings added convenience by facilitating efficient data exchange, streamlined order management, and seamless tracking capabilities across various systems.
Austin Maddox — Quadient executive vice president of North American Parcel Locker Solutions said: “We are excited to be joining forces with OneRail to help provide more efficient and simplified same-day and next-day delivery capability for retailers and distributors.
“Retailers are seeing a surge in same day and next day customer orders. Combining OneRail’s delivery orchestration platform with Quadient’s smart lockers creates an optimized, dependable, fast and efficient way to execute final mile fulfillment, while maintaining the store’s visual integrity.”
