How does it all work?

  • ALL delivery service can deposit a parcel via the intelligent parcel boxes and those receiving their parcel can collect it from the parcel box unit 24/7. This drastically reduces the need for student accommodation managers to receive and store parcels for student residents.


  • myRENZbox’s can be installed in all manner of buildings and combined with mailboxes – enable students to receive and send parcels with ease from their own residence, making it an attractive feature for the student accommodation sector. They also remove the inconvenience of having to return a parcel to the post office or via another inefficient returns method, as the parcel box units provide a returns option.


  • Through implementing the latest technology, complex logistical processes can be easily managed through the creation of the integrated myRENZbox system. This online system uses the RENZ internet portal, myRENZbox app and the unit’s touch screen display functions so building managers, students, parcel delivery services and other service providers can network with ease around deliveries and collections. Parcel box occupancy can be monitored online, so authorised parties know whether a box is available or not. This feature means building managers can contact students through the system to inform them that a parcel has been left in a myRENZbox unit for a significant period, therefore prompting collection.
