Success message #1. Pochtomat is revolutionizing parcel logistics in Russia

With Russia, yet another country has turned to the innovative KePol logistics solution for the delivery and pick-up of parcels. Especially in urban areas such as Moscow and St. Petersburg, KePol machines provide the secure transfer of items on a 24-7 basis.

The Pochtomat company is currently revolutionizing e-commerce business in Russia by providing the safe transfer of goods using KePol machines with "LogiBox" branding. Pochtomat is the operator of a machine network , which gives web shops an opportunity to choose from various logistics companies in order to deliver articles to their customers.

The Russian parcel logistics market is characterized by enormous expansion with annual growth rates of 30 to 35 per cent. In 2011, a transaction volume of EUR 8 billion was generated.

Pochtomat is currently installing the last machines from its first order, which will give it a base of around120 KePol machines. Moreover, the company has already placed a follow-up order for the further enlargement of its network.

Success message #2. Two customer networks covering Luxembourg: BPM-Lux and P&T Luxembourg

Luxembourg has two automated parcel systems, both of which rely on the proven quality of KEBA's KePol system.

BPM-Lux was founded in 2005 and is a service of RT-Log SA, a private logistics company in Luxembourg. BPM-Lux sees itself as a solutions provider in the last mile and as a neutral partner between customers and suppliers.

The company has ordered five modular KePol/FS-08 systems and has already installed these at five locations in Luxembourg (filling stations, convenience stores and an industrial park). With the KePol solution, BPM-Lux offers its customers the opportunity to pick-up their parcels from one of the five machines ("BPM Parcel Station") on a 24-7 basis with no delays or detours. Robert Thiemann, the founder of BPM-Lux / RT-Log SA describes the project as being unique because Luxembourg is the first country worldwide to have a neutral, independent last-mile solution.

"P&T Luxembourg", the postal operator in Luxembourg, has both recognized and understood the advantages and benefits offered by reliable parcel delivery using automats. Consequently, the company has contracted KEBA to supply and install twelve KePol modular systems.

"P&T Luxembourg" aims to offer its customers parcel pick-ups and drop-offs that are free from the restrictions of post office opening hours. This provides customers with value added, as parcels can be posted and collected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The first two of the twelve modular KePol machines were installed in October and November 2011, This was in good time for the Christmas holidays and helped to cope with the particularly high levels of seasonal parcel traffic in an efficient and economic manner.

Success message #3. Handling increasing parcel volume in Dubai

In November 2011, the KEDU company launched an independent parcel terminal park in Dubai using the latest KePol machines under the name "Parzel". The strategic partnership between KEBA and KEDU has resulted in an advanced and innovative solution, which offers businesses and individuals in the Emirates access to state-of-the-art, automated delivery.

KEDU provides postal and logistics companies with an entire network of machines aimed at the more efficient handling of the increasing volume of parcels in the Arab World. Moreover, KEDU places a special emphasis on the use of innovative methods and green solutions that reduce carbon emissions. Fifteen "Parzel" machines have already been installed, mainly at smart stations across the city in strategic areas.

Mr. Obaid Al-Qahash, KEDU's Managing Director: "We are thrilled to have signed this partnership agreement with KEBA. Our goal is to introduce new, smart solutions in the UAE and through our affiliation with KEBA, we will be able to furnish consumers and businesses with a real alternative that fits in more naturally with their daily lives and thus offers our customers extra convenience and enhanced efficiency."

Success message #4. An innovative solution for busy professionals in Lithuania

The Lithuanian Post is currently introducing KEBA self-service machines under the name SIUNTOS24. 51 machines have already been installed in major shopping centres and at bus stations in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai and Panevezys, while a further twenty machines are to be installed in the coming days.

Lithuanian Post Director-General, Lina Minderiene: "We believe that these terminals will be especially appealing to busy professionals and time-saving for both residents and businesses." Kautra Chairman Mindaugas Platukis, adds: "The new self-service terminals will allow people to send and receive parcels more quickly and easily. They will no longer have to wait for a courier or use working time to go to the post office."

Success message #5. Network of 2,400 PACKSTATIONs in Germany further enlarged

Although it already had 2,400 machines operating in Germany under the name "PACKSTATION", Deutsche Post DHL has again extended its network with another 200 machines.

Due to the sizeable expansion in the B2C market, with a parcel volume growth rate of 30 per cent, many machines had reached the limit of their capacity. Therefore, these have now been replaced by the latest KePol modular machine generation with up to 300 boxes. The disassembled machines with a fixed size of 76 boxes, which thanks to their durability and exceptional quality were still in perfect condition, are now being used at new sites where the PACKSTATION required introduction.

KePol modular fits perfectly into the Deutsche Post DHL business concept by optimizing the capacity for each location based on business needs (box capacity, available space).
