Sainsbury has agreed to house bays of secure lockers at two supermarkets in Nottingham as part of a trial by Royal Mail and the local council to tackle failed deliveries. Under the scheme, dubbed Not in Home, residents can arrange for deliveries to go to a designated locker attached to a local supermarket, forecourt store or business. In a separate initiative, the NG5 postcode area, residents are being invited to specify an alternative delivery option on a new delivery preference database. Options include a neighbour's house, the local post office or one of the new locker banks. Customers get a pincode unique to each delivery, to open the locker. The secure locker system generates footfall without the attendant hassle, said a Royal Mail spokesman. {{NEWS }}
