TRTC Promotes Smart Logistics Service at MRT Stations

In line with the global trend of “Smart Logistics,” Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) announced that the MRT network will seek a major role in the thriving e-commerce business.
In fact, TRTC pointed out that a number of local businesses have reached out to MRT stations by setting up “unstaffed” shops with lines of lockers. These intelligent lockers contain goods ordered by customers and delivered to designated MRT stations. Customers will be able to pick up their parcel from the designated locker with a code provided by the online store.
Such delivery service can already be found at MRT Daan, Zhongshan, Shilin, Fuxinggang, Xingtian Temple, Taipei Arena, Nanjing Fuxing, Neihu, and Sanchong stations with fridge lockers.
Betting on the rising popularity of “online shopping x MRT pickup” method, TRTC plans to release more space for the smart logistics service. A total of 108 spots across the MRT network will be available for e-commerce activities through public tender.
TRTC hopes to draw on the creativity of industry players to transform MRT stations into intelligent spaces incorporating e-commerce and logistics service. In addition to the basic requirement of delivery lockers, tenderers are also encouraged to introduce other smart equipment to the stations, providing residents with more convenient life.
The tender will be conducted in early April. Interested businesses should visit TRTC at 4F, No. 7, Lane 48, Sec. 2, Zhongshan N. Rd or call Ms. Wang (TEL: 02-25238993, ext. 258) for inquiries.
