Amazon Japan Starts Locker Delivery Service

Economy

Tokyo, Sept. 18 (Jiji Press)--Amazon Japan G.K. started on Wednesday a locker delivery service, "Amazon Hub," aimed at enhancing convenience for customers and reducing the need for redeliveries.

The e-commerce giant has installed lockers at FamilyMart Co. <8028> convenience stores and other locations for customers to pick up their packages.

Amazon Japan will introduce the service at dozens of places in Tokyo and Kanagawa Prefecture, south of Tokyo, by the end of the month. It aims to expand the service network across the country next year and beyond.

Users can pick up packages from lockers placed at FamilyMart stores, stations of Odakyu Electric Railway Co. <9007> and other locations by scanning a bar code from package delivery emails.

Users can choose where to pick up their packages when purchasing products online.
