Polish users shopping on Amazon.de can now select to have their orders delivered using parcel locker network Paczkomaty, which is operated by local logistics firm InPost, according to a report on news site PulsBiznesu.pl.
The cooperation agreement between Amazon and Inpost has not yet been officially announced but Paczkomaty is currently listed as a default delivery option for all purchases made on Amazon.de from Poland.
Amazon serves users from Poland through the Polish version of Amazon.de. Until now, delivery costs and time have been a serious barrier for the company to build a stronger presence on the market. The cooperation with InPost may help resolve the problem.
Rumors have flown over the past few years that Amazon is looking to launch a marketplace in Poland. Gazeta.pl reported that it might even happen this November. However, it seems unlikely now given the latest move by the marketplace.
Amazon’s main competitor in Poland is Allegro.pl, which holds a dominant position in the Polish e-commerce market.
