Supply Side USA, a provider of retail products for the self-storage industry, is partnering with Kinek, a service for online shoppers where packages can be securely delivered to a specific location.
Addresses of storage locations participating though Supply Side USA will be built into the Kinek database, enabling an online shopper to have products delivered to a Kinek drop-off location. Consumers will be able to find these locations by ZIP code. The package is then shipped to the Kinek point for pickup by the customer, who pays a minimal service charge at the time of pick up.
The alternate-delivery service will be a complement to a new self-service shipping program Supply Side is testing for roll-out later in 2011. The shipping kiosk concept is designed to be an additional revenue stream and an add-on for commercial-storage clients and walk-in traffic.
Supply Side USA is owned by PWC International, an innovative corporation specializing in packaging services, pallet manufacturing, warehousing, pick and pack services, and logistics.
