A packing station offers recipients of parcels the possibility to receive their orders outside the counter hours. These switching devices for packages are usually found in public places, which are generally easily accessible. The Post Packstation is especially useful for customers who do not have time to pick up their parcels during the day and are away from home. When the package is ready at the packing station, the recipient is usually informed by SMS and usually has nine days to pick it up. At the same time, he receives a PIN with which he can open the corresponding mailbox in the packing station.
