The federated locker system will first be implemented in areas with higher demand before expanding to the rest of Singapore, says Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

SINGAPORE: There are plans to roll out a federated locker system in residential areas to improve the last mile delivery of parcels around the island, said Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam on Tuesday (Apr 26).

"Based on IDA’s findings, the biggest problem faced by our local delivery companies is in making door-to-door deliveries and finding that no one is at home to receive the goods. Return visits add to costs and often inconvenience for customers."
