In a time where consumers want the convenience of getting everything now, The Courier Guy launches the pudo Smart locker system that will make connecting with friends and family even easier, no matter where you are in the country.
The advanced pudo (Pick Up, Drop Off) terminal system is a positive move by The Courier Guy to allow customers to send parcels at their own convenience through a centrally located locker area where parcels can be collected from, reducing the chances of human contact in line with lockdown guidelines.
With consumers increasingly using digital technology for more than just shopping, The Courier Guy brand believes it’s crucial to find products that fit perfectly into the lives of its loyal customers.
The Courier Guy Managing Director, Stephen Gleisner explains that nationally there are currently over 300 lockers installed with new installations taking place daily; with the aim of installing 1000 lockers by mid-2021.
“We are increasing our contactless pudo locker system network to have lockers across the country so that even if you are in Mthatha, Paarl or Thohoyandou, you will be able to send your parcels to your friends and family at any given moment,” he says.
In following national lockdown regulations, it’s become even more important for consumers to find other ways to deliver and receive valuable items big or small in a safe and convenient manner.
“With the advent of COVID-19, we believe that our pudo lockers have ensured that innovation and product agility remain at the heart of what we do as a brand. We wanted to make sure that we continue to remain the reliable courier guy for our customers even during the toughest conditions placed upon us all,” he adds.
How does it work you ask?
- It is an easy and quick delivery system. With pudo smart lockers you can send most items, in select locations around the country. Simply pop your package into a pudo locker at a shopping centre or location near you, and pick your process: there’s locker to door, door to locker and locker to locker.
- The courier picks up your package and drops it off at the pudo locker or address of your choice where the recipient has 36 hours to collect at their convenience.
- The system allows for the delivery of items that weigh up to 20 kilograms and caters for small and bigger items.
