Shopbox

Grocery deliveries reimagined

View more

Shopbox is the world's only temperature-controlled delivery locker for the home and click & collect that saves you money whilst providing flexibility for your customers.

How it works

Installation of Shopbox

Once the installation location has been agreed, Shopbox will be installed quickly and with very little hassle. No power is needed, and its handy wheel means it can be moved around at any time.

Safe and secure

Shopbox can be fastened to any fixture outside of the home, or if used for click & collect, can be tethered together for security. The lock is SIM-enabled and can either be set up with a customer’s chosen PIN code or to accept single-use PIN codes which are sent via text.

Be efficient with deliveries

Customers can choose a one day delivery slot as their shopping can be delivered when they’re out. This enables you to deliver on a more logistically-efficient route, meaning lower fuel costs, no time spent waiting around and no failed deliveries. Shopbox also facilitates night time deliveries.

Stable freshness

Shopbox comprises 3 separate compartments – ambient, chilled and frozen. No power is required, with Shopbox keeping its temperature through the use of reusable eutectic plates which are frozen in advance and delivered by the retailer along with the groceries. Shopbox has undergone extensive testing to ensure that food is kept at the correct temperature for a minimum of 12 hours.

Ideal for parcels

When Shopbox is not being used for grocery deliveries it can accept regular parcels, with the possibility of an additional revenue stream for the retailer.

FAQ

How much does Shopbox cost?

As a retailer you can either buy or rent Shopbox, with the cost dependent on the volumes ordered and the length of contract agreed. Some or all of the cost can be passed on to the customer, or Shopbox can be offered as part of a loyalty programme.

How much can Shopbox save?

Research using retailer data and routing software suggests that savings of up to £3.50 per drop can be made by using Shopbox depending on retailer delivery densities. Savings come from more efficient delivery routes which result in reduced fuel costs and fewer vans being needed. Retailers will decide how much of the savings can be passed to the consumer, and how much they keep to reduce their losses on online delivery.

How do I know Shopbox is secure?

Shopbox is bolted to an external fixture such as a wall or gate so it cannot be stolen. The lock is fully secure and can be programmed to be opened using either a customer’s chosen PIN or with a single use PIN.

Where can Shopbox be installed?

Shopbox is ideal for use outside the home or in public areas such as outside a school, train station or supermarket carpark, where a bank of boxes can be installed in a row.

How long will food stay cold?

Shopbox has been rigorously tested to keep chilled food at under 5 °C and frozen food at -15°C for a minimum of 12 hours at a consistent ambient temperature of 32°C.

What is the capacity of a Shopbox?

Shopbox is designed to fit a fully trolley load of shopping, or 241 litres in total. External dimensions are 100cm (h) x 90cm (w) x 60cm (d)

How does Shopbox stay cold?

Shopbox is kept at the required temperature by custom-designed eutectic plates (patent pending). These are pre-frozen by the retailer and delivered along with the shopping. The customer leaves the existing eutectic plates inside the Shopbox ready for the deliverer to collect and refreeze.

Once installed, can Shopbox be moved?

Although Shopbox is designed to remain in situ outside of a customer’s home or at a click & collect premises, Shopbox has a subtle wheel on one side which means it can be moved when needed.

How does the lock work?

The lock technology can integrate with a retailer’s existing infrastructure. It is SIM-enabled and communicates with a server that sends status notifications to the customer and retailer. The lock can be opened using pre-defined PIN codes or single-use PINs sent via text.

Who are Shopbox?

Shopbox is an Archbold family business backed by other investors, and inspired by UK family business Archbold Logistics Ltd: www.archbold.co.uk
