Addvery has built a unique project in Greece, at the heart of which lies the use of Automated Parcel Machines (lockers). This idea was originally inspired by the experience of other major market players such as Alza (CZ), Amazon (US), and InPost (PL).
Throughout the whole journey beginning in May 2020, Addvery has brought a high number of unique solutions aiming to develop an innovative customer-oriented delivery service. The main objective of the project was and still is to enable customers to pick up their parcels at any time at stations, malls and other key places to become the best player on the Greek market.
An important thing to mention is that Lukas Marek, the CEO of BoxNow, is simultaneously a partner at Add | Very and has successfully presented the new concept of the last mile delivery service on the Greek market.
