Paz is the largest owner of petrol stations in Israel with more than 270 locations and a market share of 24 %. It has around 240 convenience stores in their petrol stations and 51 retailer shops in other locations operating under the brand “Yellow”, which are supported by its own logistics facilities and logistic center. Paz vision is to become a one-stop shop for its customers, where they can buy petrol and groceries and pick up their online orders in one place. For this, Paz opened its own web shop in April 2016 named “Yellow Click & Pick”, where customers can buy products online and then pick-up their orders at Yellow stores. Now customers are able to pick up their orders 24/7 at Paz locations thanks to the parcel locker network “Yellowbox” realized with KePol systems. A total of 120 KePol parcel lockers have been installed at Paz petrol stations throughout Israel, and 20 additional will be installed soon.
Innovation and reliability are the key factors
In general parcel locker networks are an innovative solution for last-mile deliveries. The benefit is clear – a further raised customer satisfaction thanks to an improved service due to the 24/7 pickup time. Recipients do not have to wait at home for a delivery and they are independent from shop opening hours. Customers appreciate the fact that their goods or their parcels are kept safely in the KePol waiting for a stress-free pickup whenever they want to. That's exactly why many post, logistics and retail companies worldwide rely on the reliable KePol parcel stations. Extensive know-how and in-depth experience from many different customer projects made KEBA a technology partner of PAZ for the implementation of the automated KePol handover solution.

Record values for KePol parcel volumes
Last December, on just one day, more than half a million parcels were handed over worldwide using KePol lockers. This is a new record and roughly double the peak value from the previous year. In general, similarly high values were recorded on most days before Christmas 2020.
KePol lockers making history
KEBA has been developing and manufacturing the reliable KePol parcel lockers since 2000. The continuous boom in e-commerce and the resulting constantly increasing parcel volume make these 24/7 available parcel lockers indispensable. Get the details about this evolution in the linked article.
Contactless handover of parcels, goods and objects
KePol and KEMAS lockers make handovers easy and safe. Pick up and drop off can take place around the clock and completely independent of opening hours. The persons involved have no direct, personal contact. The transmission of viruses and any risk of infection are nearly excluded.
