Pitney Bowes Outdoor Smart Lockers systems are built with durability, offering protection against moisture, heat, cold and wind, so that packages and assets are kept safe and secure. The outdoor lockers provide improved real estate flexibility and offer the added convenience of 24/7 package pickup, eliminating the need to extend mail room hours or hire additional staff, ideal for educational campuses. With a wide selection of indoor and outdoor columns, ParcelPoint Smart Lockers can be configured to meet clients’ specific parcel volumes and space requirements.
Workplace Day Use for ParcelPoint Smart Lockers enables employees and guests to store personal items temporarily, through a user-friendly, self-service workflow. Designed to meet the needs of the modern hybrid workforce, it offers a secure storage solution at a time when many offices are doing away with assigned workspaces.
Administrative capabilities are seamlessly integrated into the Shipping 360™, Pitney Bowes’ next-generation SaaS platform, which allows for full management of the smart locker solution. This includes assigning usage for both package pick-up and day use storage within the same locker bank, making ParcelPoint a multifunction solution.

Our new smart locker solutions help to ease this transition and provide innovative solutions to package access management,” said Shemin Nurmohamed, President, Sending Technology Solutions. “Whether you’re a hybrid office worker looking for a safe storage option at the office or a mail room operator looking to streamline processes and gain full chain of custody for every package that comes into the center, we have solutions that accommodate the new ways people live and work.”
The expansion of the ParcelPoint Smart Locker suite aligns with the evolving post-pandemic hybrid work/life model, while also addressing the challenges faced by campuses and institutions dealing with the surging volume of inbound packages.
