Amazon Locker

October 2, 2011

Last week, when I was returning from the gym and was heading to the supermarket to buy some food, I stumbled across a weird looking machine, standing at the alleyway of Hammersmith Broadway bus station.

It was a set of lockers, which looked like a left luggage machine. But Hammersmith bus station was a peculiar place to choose for those lockers, as it is not a train or airport station. My surprise turned to excitement, when I approached the screen and realised that it was an “Amazon Locker”.

Amazon is tight lipped about the lockers and has not yet provided any information on the web. Perhaps they first wait to install some of these lockers all over London. My guess is that Amazon intends to use it like FigleavesByBox lockers: you order your item and you chose to get it delivered at those lockers where you can pick it up. And judging from the screen of the Amazon lockers, they will work with a code, which you will get when you order it.
