Purolator wants to deliver to metro stations

Pierre-André Normandin says Purolator wants to deliver parcels in the metro, but it’s not exactly true. What they want is to place lockboxes near metro stations so people can pick up delivered items more conveniently if they’re not home all day.

I’m not clear how this is better than Canada Post’s flex delivery service, with which it would compete (according to Wikipedia, Purolator is 91% owned by Canada Post anyway), and it doesn’t have the sheer offhand convenience of the outfit that sells hardware doodads and lets you pick them up at any metro dépanneur (no box, no keys, no vandalism).
