The DSV Locker quickly became the popular choice for businesses and tens of thousands of people who want to send and receive parcels, and collect their online purchases, at a place and time convenient to them.
Launched in 2014, the DSV Locker meets changing distribution needs in commerce and industry fuelled by the growth of e-commerce, which bring opportunities to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and improve customer experiences.
We will have approximately 200 lockers by the end of 2018, spread across the country. The majority (80%) of the lockers are located at Engen service stations, while the balance serve Makro and are located at various high-traffic community or commercial locations.
We anticipate there will ultimately be more than 450 DSV Lockers countrywide as we meet a growing need in many sectors:
eCommerce – Click and Collect combines online choice with offline convenience. You buy online and collect your orders safely and securely at a time and place convenient to you.
In-Field Solution Service – Instead of delivering parts to your depots, we deliver to a locker closest to your technician’s home, at night. This means the technician starts the day onsite, and research shows this service typically eliminates nearly 30% of a technician’s travel time, reduces fuel costs and wear and tear on vehicles.
Education – Enables colleges, universities and other learning institutions to offer students the convenience of picking up their parcels and mail at “student hours”.
Mail rooms and accountable mail – Designed to fill a major void in the mail centre delivery process, the DSV Locker is reusable and accommodates letters, flats and small packages, and addresses the risks and reduces the costs associated with the traditional mailroom.
Financial Services – Organisations and logistical companies around the world are always searching for more effective, efficient and secure ways to deliver the increasing number of parcels. Automated indoor and outdoor parcel lockers provide an alternative delivery solution that distributes goods to consumers, cost effectively, securely and conveniently, and the locker compliments the client’s defined workflows and operational practices.
DSV PAK (Pre-Paid Parcel Services) – DSV Locker PAK solves complex, expensive and unreliable challenges for small to medium sized business. Costs are fixed, and users don’t need an account – simply buy the appropriate packaging from any participating retailer and send your parcel anywhere in South Africa
