Electronic locker systems are fantastically comfortable and significantly ease the parcel delivery of over a million packages a week. Parcel pickup lockers are a great alternative to home package deliveries. As such, delivery lockers provide operators and mail carriers with some serious benefits to their supply chain:
- Bundling of parcels and packages
- Saving on personnel costs of delivery carriers
- Increased number of successful first-time deliveries
- Optimization of post office operation
- Optimization of delivery routes
- Lower operating costs
- Improved asset management
But just how secure locker systems really are? Currently parcel pick up lockers rely heavily on external security measures like CCTV cameras and local security officers. They are however not much different from other kinds of self-service devices and terminals. This presents lots of opportunities for criminals to break in physically or exploit the vulnerabilities of the parcel locker software.
Luckily there is lots of experience that Parcel Locker deployers can borrow from ATM security and fraud prevention experts. ATM and self-service device operators have been in a constant battle with crafty criminals for ages. These criminals will try everything to get inside cash-filled ATMs and get away with the loot.
