Light Rail Manila Corp. teamed up with the Airspeed Group of Companies to roll out the first smart locker system in public transport terminal next month.
“The LRMC team is passionate about innovation. Driven by our shared mission to enhance the commuter experience and make it truly world-class, we want to make commuters feel like they are in a station that they might go to in other countries,” said LRMC president and chief executive Juan Alfonso.
“We aim to give our passengers a glimpse into our future, and we’re glad to partner with the Airspeed Group in making part of this vision happen,” he said.
PopBox, powered by Airspeed, is set to be officially launched at LRT-1 in February. With presence in key cities in Indonesia and Malaysia, PopBox is a smart locker system that enables contactless delivery and allows people to receive their packages more comfortably.
Airspeed Group of Companies will serve as the official logistics partner offering this new fulfillment option to clients such as e-commerce platforms and small/medium enterprises.
Powered by Airspeed, PopBox smart lockers will be located in all 20 LRT-1 stations, and will offer efficient and contactless delivery service for the benefit of commuters who wish to use LRT-1 stations as their pick-up point for packages.
“We are proud to be part of bringing this new technology which provides convenience and time-efficiency for our clients’ customers,” Airspeed Group chairperson Rosemarie Rafael said.
“Airspeed always aims to make it happen for our stakeholders – from creating a better online shopping experience [for fulfillment] to faster, more efficient and convenient documents and parcels sending and delivery. This will now help address the different fulfillment issues that we encounter,” he said.
