Erwin Renz’s package stations with Elatec’s RFID offer maximum flexibility in parcel delivery

It’s a familiar problem for anyone who shops online: If a person doesn’t have any friendly neighbours to accept a package, it’s very difficult for working people to receive a delivery. No success with follow-up delivery attempts either. In the end, the package lands at a service station that is neither close by nor has customer-friendly business hours.
In 2015 the Erwin Renz Metallwarenfabrik GmbH & Co KG, the supplier for the German and European letterbox industry, developed an electronic parcel box system with 24/7 availability to solve the package delivery problem once and for all. The myRENZbox can be used at private homes, businesses, and retailers. For maximum flexibility, the system was equipped with the RFID reader/writer TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE from ELATEC.
