WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING POP BOX VENDING MACHINES?

Current as of: 27.10.2023

Vending machines have become a permanent feature of Polish housing estates and are extremely popular. It is through them that Poles most often pick up their purchases ordered online or make returns. They are used by up to 97% of consumers* and parcel machine deliveries already account for almost half of all deliveries**.

Why use POP BOX machines

Why is this form of delivery so popular? Flexibility - because you decide when you can pick up your parcel yourself. However, the most commonly practised 24 hours for parcel collection may not be sufficient. For this reason, the POP BOX vending machines have extended the time for collection to 4 days. We understand that the pace of life, the rush or the need to meet all obligations often preclude  the possibility of collecting a parcel within 2 days. We have therefore extended this time for the comfort of our customers.

Making it easier to send or receive parcels at a POP BOX machine is their location. They are most often located in places frequented by residents of the area - around markets, petrol stations or schools. The parcels are usually picked up "on the way" from work to home, but there are times when POP BOX users go to them as part of a walk with their pet, a jog or a bike ride. POP BOX vending machines - despite their primary utility function - are aesthetically pleasing, in muted colours and blend in with their surroundings. This is because the shade of grey of our vending machines was indicated by respondents in the survey.

It is worth noting that by using DHL's services, you are taking care of the environment, as sending parcels eliminates the need to print paper labels, so translates into less paper consumption and less strain on the environment.
