Bijenkorf chooses Instabox for fast and sustainable parcel deliveries


Instabox continues its rapid growth in the Netherlands through the partnership with one of the most well-loved brands in the market. Online customers of De Bijenkorf can now enjoy fast and fossil-free parcel delivery with Instabox.

"Bijenkorf stands for style and quality, but also for responsibility and a more sustainable lifestyle. We strive for a world where everyone makes conscious choices and quality win over quantity. Fossil-free parcel delivery is, therefore, a logical addition to our delivery methods. We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with Instabox", says Christiaan Mourik, Director Omnichannel at de Bijenkorf.

"Everyone in the Netherlands knows De Bijenkorf, and we are very pleased to partner with such an iconic company. We share a common focus on sustainability and an obsession with customer satisfaction. This is a very important step for us in the Netherlands, and we look forward to growing our business together and providing consumers with an exceptional delivery experience," says David Lundqvist, Chief Commercial Officer at Instabox.

The greenest carrier

In May of 2021, Instabox acquired Red je Pakketje, the market leader in same-day home deliveries, in the Netherlands. Since November 1st, Instabox has offered 100 percent fossil-free deliveries to smart automated parcel lockers or directly to the customer's home. By the end of 2022, Instabox aims to deliver completely CO2-free.

Partly thanks to the high demand for environmentally sustainable delivery options, Instabox is growing steadily. Instabox has doubled its number of distribution centers in the Netherlands this year, creating hundreds of jobs in the process.
