NEVER AGAIN WASTE TIME PICKING UP, DROPPING OFF, OR SCHLEPPING AROUND YOUR STUFF.
LocDrop is a modular city locker system that has the benefits of both traditional public lockers and courier services. Rather than having static lockers in limited locations, LocDrop has a fleet of modular lockers, called LocBoxes, that can be strategically placed to meet real-time demand. Customers can use the LoxBoxes as they would a traditional locker, or they can pay an additional fee to have the LocBox delivered directly to them.

NETWORK, LOCBOXES, COURIERS
LocDrop is made up of three parts. The Network is accessible through the app and is made up of all of the LocBoxes and Couriers throughout the city. The LocBoxes are modular locker units that come in multiple sizes and can fit anything from a camera to an oversized duffle bag. The Couriers are a team of freelance workers who continually move the LocBoxes throughout the Network to meet the needs of the customers.
