Condo residents, would you like this parcel collection locker in your estate? Then maybe you should write in to Parcel Santa cause at least 30 condominiums will have these installed within their premises.
Another 30 private residences have signed on to have such locker systems in place.
These locker systems have proven to give a high level of convenience, especially when all members of a household are out there being economically active and online buying is becoming a norm of life. Collection is a breeze at one’s own convenience.
Condos that already have this in place include Pebble Bay, Mi Casa, Costa Del Sol, Pinevale executive condo and Tampines court. Others such a sSpring Grove, Sims Green, Amber Point, Tanglin Park and Chestervale executive condo have signed on for the lockers and will have them installed in due course.
Parcel Santa will also be installing a parcel locker network to be tested at HDBs such as Punggol and Bukit Panjang next year as a pilot.
DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam said that there are plans for a national locker system in residential areas to improve “last mile” delivery of parcels around the island.
Some residents have expressed uncertainty, citing fears of planted bombs.
News reports have told of how residents are concerned about the possibility of parcel bombs being used by terrorists. The response to this fear is that precautions could be put in place, such as installing the parcel lockers near rubbish collection areas for example.
