Annual report 30 FM Logistic 2021/22
A new generation of parcel T E S T Automated lockers: Westfield Vélizy 2 backs versatility. In November 2021, in time for Christmas, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and FM Logistic officially opened La Station Colis@Westfield, a pick-up station in the Westfield Vélizy 2 shopping centre car park: this 60m² facility can be used 24/7, making life easier for customers and retailers generally, but particularly during peak shopping periods. The principle of the secure pick-up lockers is well known: customers order products online or in a shopping centre store, receive a code by text or email, and then collect the parcel(s) at their convenience. But La Station Colis@Westfield is rather more sophisticated than the standard metal locker solution. Firstly, it enables collection of fresh and frozen food products. Secondly, it can handle larger items like bikes or skis, which were previously excluded from the convenience of click-and-collect systems. Lastly, it can be used by all types of brands and retailers regardless of size, even if they are not based in the shopping centre. The station has three automated lockers: a 5-metre tower containing up to 300 standard-sized non-food parcels, a second automated machine for up to 150 deliveries of fresh and frozen food products, and a third locker with 12 spaces for large items, such as home furniture or large household appliances. Auchan, Cdiscount and Relais Colis are already using La Station Colis@Westfield pick-up station.
How great would it be if you could collect all your online shopping from a single location?
