Singapore Post signs Memorandum of Understanding with Park N Parcel on LaMP collaboration
Singapore, 07 Nov 2018 – Singapore Post (SingPost) today announced a strategic partnership with Park N Parcel which will see the latter’s collection points included within SingPost’s first-of-its-kind integrated last-mile platform LaMP.
Under the partnership, Park N Parcel’s network of over 1,600 parkers1 will be included within LaMP. The technology-agnostic platform is able to mesh partner providers like Park N Parcel with SingPost assets, including POPStations, parcel lockers and brick-and-mortar collection points into a unified network, providing unparalleled control and flexibility for deliveries.

LaMP seeks to gather logistics partners and create an ecosystem where all parties can come together to share logistics resources, solutions and capabilities. It also aims to promote logistics-enabled solutions and implement them across the supply chain.
Park N Parcel’s tie-up with SingPost follows LaMP’s unveiling on Monday, and affirms its status as a pioneering regional platform that offers a compelling value proposition to businesses and consumers.
“SingPost is delighted to work with Park N Parcel on LaMP. This collaboration will be the first of many as we reach out across the region, and represents an important step in elevating industry standards as well as enhancing customer experience in the last-mile logistics landscape,” said Mr Alex Tan, SingPost Group Chief Digital and Technology Officer.
“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with local industry leaders such as SingPost as we continue to improve on our services. We seek to provide both buyers and sellers the peace of mind while keeping costs affordable so that the delivery process will become an afterthought in the online shopping experience,” said Mr Erik Cheong, CoFounder and Chief Marketing Officer of Park N Parcel.
In addition to Park N Parcel, SingPost is also in advanced discussions with several retail and logistics partners around the region to join LaMP. In particular, talks with an Indonesian lastmile operator with 1,500 collection points across 58 cities are at a penultimate stage, and are expected to conclude by the end of this month.
1 Parkers are individuals/retail stores that have registered themselves to collect parcels on behalf of the neighbours. Delivery can be arranged to be dropped off at a parker’s home/store, where one can then pick up their parcel at their convenience.
