TfL and Amazon to Install Lockers at Underground Stations

Transport for London and Amazon have this week announced a partnership to install depository boxes at London Underground station car parks.
‘Amazon Lockers’ will be located at two Tube station car parks – Finchley Central and Newbury Park – and customers will be able to have orders delivered to the Lockers from Monday 30 June.
Deliveries made to Amazon Lockers nationally have more than doubled in the last year with the number of locations now approaching 300.
Over the past seven months, TfL has worked with local and national retailers to introduce a number of click and collect services as well as pop-up shops, bringing “new and innovative” retailers to customers using the transport network.
Amazon customers select a locker location when they get to the online checkout and are then given a unique pick-up code in order to retrieve their items.
Tfl said the partnership will help secure income for reinvestment in London’s transport network as part of a wider commercial strategy that is currently forecast to generate £3.5 billion over the coming years.
It follows announcements earlier this year to bring click and collect services from major retailers as well as the introduction of pop-up shops to the London Underground network.
Last month, the head of retail development at Transport for London showcased plans for station redevelopments across all zones, offering advertisers and businesses new opportunities to take advantage of the busy tube and overground network.
