Singapore, 27 May 2022– Panasonic Connect Asia today announced the completion of the 500 parcel lockers installation for the Parcel Locker Network System.
Parcel Lockers are installed across residential areas and are accessible within 5 minutes walking distance, 24/7.
In September 2020, a parcel locker project was awarded to Panasonic Asia Pacific and its consolidated company RFNet for the hardware & software design, development, deployment, and maintenance support for half of the nationwide parcel locker network. The committed 500 parcel lockers were successfully installed.
This system is the company's first project that includes the development of a largescale logistics infrastructure system. Through system maintenance services, Panasonic Connect Asia and RFNet Technologies have contributed to a more efficient and sustainable logistic system together with operating company Pick Network.
The System architecture of Parcel Lockers
“The project tender win is in-line with Panasonic’s mission to contribute to society, to improve the effectiveness of the entire parcel delivery-collection process so as to address the rapidly growing of the e-Commerce trends to create a convenient logistic platform for the online retailers, logistic service providers, and consumers”, said Gary Tan, Head of Solutions Business Division.
Pick lockers are strategically placed for the general population, in public housing areas, community clubs & transportation nodes. Consumers can conveniently collect their online purchases easily from accessible lockers. Upon completion of delivery, the Locker Management System will notify the Interoperability Platform and the Interoperability Platform will send the collection PIN to consumers via SMS or email alert when their parcels are ready for collection at the parcel locker at their convenience.
Gary further comments, “No doubt, the entire journey on this turn-key project has been challenging due to our changing environment fuelled by the pandemic, but it has given us valuable opportunities to resolve challenges using innovation and co-working relationship with the customer.”
Panasonic aims to continue developing more advanced autonomous solutions to resolve customers’ operational issues, and user experience and contribute to a sustainable society.
