Amazon officials are set to arrive in Israel to meet with representatives of Israel’s Boxit, which specializes in package delivery to lockers. A report in Globes said that it appeared that the locker delivery system was a model that would work for Amazon in Israel, as it cost far less than direct home delivery. The discussions between Amazon and the company will include plans to expand the Boxit service for the international giant.
Amazon recently began shipping directly to Israel, and is developing a Hebrew-language version of its site. Currently, Amazon delivers directly to homes via delivery services DHL and UPS, to Israel Post lockers located in gas stations, and to Boxit lockers located in a variety of locations.
The report said that Amazon was seeking to expand its relationship with Boxit.
An informal survey of Amazon customers by Globes said that the Boxit service was a “game changer,” with goods delivered quickly. In a statement, the Israel Postal Corporation said that it “welcomed competition and planned to expand its services for Amazon in the coming years.”
Boxit had no comment.
