and time efficient service where goods still arrive on time but with much fewer miles travelled.
ByBox already makes 20 million deliveries a year in the UK using this system, primarily for the distribution of parts and equipment urgently required by companies with mobile service teams.
But it has ambitious plans to extend the reach of the service to benefit the many more consumers now taking advantage of online retailing and others that require more flexible, convenient and regular delivery methods for all manner of goods.
ByBox Chief Executive Stuart Miller said: “We have a hugely effective in-night parts delivery service which brings goods to the destination on time with the minimum of fuss.
“This also means that less miles are travelled because there is less traffic on the roads at night so we can benefit parcel carriers and logistics operators looking to save money on fuel costs.
“At this time, when fuel costs are going through the roof, we offer a very attractive alternative.”
ByBox now holds around 70 per cent of the field service market and has recently expanded its number of boxes and is looking to develop new markets.
The company offers an extensive range of distribution platforms for organisations, firms and individuals, with investment, innovation and technology underpinning its success.
It also has a world-class manufacturing facility in France, which has made and installed more than 54,000 electronic lockers in more than 20 countries worldwide.
In the UK, ByBox operates the country's largest dedicated through-the-night distribution service.
It has a pre-8am delivery service, operating six nights a week, which is 100 per cent reliable and considered the best of its type in the UK.
