DHL takes over assets Instabox Nederland and Red Je Pakketje

The trustee of the bankrupt companies Instabox Netherlands and Red Je Pakketje has reached agreement with DHL Parcel on the acquisition of all parcel lockers, roll containers, computers and sorting machines for an amount of more than 5.5 million euros.

Moreover, an agreement has been made with DHL that it will make every effort to help as many former employees as possible find a suitable new job.

Instabox’s nearly one thousand parcel lockers are partly spread across the country, including at shops and sports clubs. Some of the safes have not yet been installed. DHL will do that in the near future. The acquisition of Instabox’s parcel lockers will increase the total network of manned and unmanned service points for parcel collection and delivery to more than 5,000.

A so-called mobility center is being set up for the former employees of Instabox and Red Je Pakketje. Information days will also be organized for them at various locations in the country.

The bankruptcy of Instabox Nederland and Red Je Pakketje came as a complete surprise to the employees and freelance deliverers, especially since Instabox and rival Budbee were setting up a new company Instabee that would also serve the Dutch market. The question is therefore whether the new merged company can count on a lot of sympathy in the Netherlands, also because more than 900 jobs have been lost.

Instabee is already in full swing on the Swedish home market got started. In the run-up to Black Friday, three new terminals have been opened for sorting and distributing packages. Those terminals are located in Malmö, Gothenburg and Södertälje.

The partner companies can process hundreds of thousands more packages with less impact on the environment, to more people, said Pontus Håstlund, Nordic General Manager at Budbee.

The three terminals are about 5000 square meters in size. The company also has an even larger terminal (of 6800 square meters) under construction in Vaggeryd outside Jönköping. A sorting center is also on the way at Pilängen in Örebro (4,000 square meters), which should be ready in June 2023.

The terminal in Jönköping will become a central hub for deliveries to all markets, as well as for last mile deliveries in the region.
