Abstract

E-commerce is still a strong growing segment with fierce competition among parcel delivery service providers. To stay ahead of the competitors innovation is necessary. Currently, parcels are being delivered with large delivery vans which will usually deliver single parcels to doorsteps of their customers.

In our paper a literature review on parcel lockers, 3 methods for analysis are described and the results of a case study are provided.
