Instabox will now rapidly increase its network of smart automated parcel lockers in Germany through a new partnership with the well-renowned drugstore chain budni. 

Budni is one of Germany’s largest drugstore chains, currently operating 190 stores across Germany. Through this new partnership, Instabox will place its smart automated parcel lockers in selected budni stores and further increase the level of service for customers.

“We think Instabox will be a great addition to our in-store services and overall consumer offering. We are sure that our customers will enjoy the simplicity of receiving their e-commerce packages with Instabox. Instabox is a truly disruptive company with its extreme focus on offering a sustainable shipping service,” says Christoph Wöhlke, Managing Director IWAN BUDNIKOWSKY GmbH & Co. KG.

Instabox is currently shipping parcels from well-known and beloved brands like H&M and &other stories in Germany, in addition, many more merchants have signed up and are currently integrating the Instabox services in the market. 

“Partnering with such a well-loved brand like budni is a key milestone as we look to expand our business in Germany. We believe that picking up parcels should be a friction-free part of people’s everyday lives, making budni a perfect partner. We increase the convenience for consumers and simultaneously reduce CO2 emissions as we are operating fossil-free and locker deliveries are more efficient than home deliveries,” says Bram Verwer, Head of Sales Germany at Instabox.  

In its home market, Sweden, Instabox has challenged traditional players with more customer-friendly, faster (often same-day), and more sustainable (fossil-free) deliveries and has quickly overtaken many traditional players. Instabox has changed how consumers receive their e-commerce parcels by eliminating standing in line or having to stay at home all day to wait. Instabox enables customers to choose where, when and by whom their parcels are picked up by placing smart automated parcel lockers at convenient places.  

The simplicity of Instabox:

  • Customers choose Instabox as shipping service at the check-out of the merchant

  • The customer gets a tracking link by text message with a pin code to the locker

  • Parcels are picked up whenever the client wants to, often the same or the next day, without the hassle of having to stand in line.
