Smart parcel delivery box company Pelipod is relocating from London to Bristol and becoming a member of the SETsquared business incubation programme.

Founded in 2013, Pelipod has created a connected, secure, unattended parcel box that uses machine-to-machine communications to transmit secure codes for parcel and user access. It makes both deliveries and returns from designated premises possible.

The system is entirely self contained and requires no power or wifi connections.

The firm is joining SETsquared, based at the Engine Shed, one of the most successful business incubation organisations in the world.

Founder Karl Wills said: “We have brought our product to market and the scale of both the B2B and B2C opportunity is immense.

“To fully capitalise on the UK and international opportunities before us we were keen to be part of an organisation with a proven ability to help technology organisations grow exponentially.

“SETsquared has an unrivalled track-record of assisting UK businesses become global successes and we are delighted to be accepted as a member of the Bristol centre.”

The Pelipod product began field trials late last year and started commercially selling to consumers in March with a number of live customers across the UK.

Nick Sturge, centre director for SETsquared Bristol said: “We have known Pelipod since its early days and it has a great and well thought-out solution for the big problem of the unreliability of parcel delivery.

“We recognised the huge growth potential of Pelipod and the strength of the founding team and are delighted to have them join us in Bristol.”

Engine Shed, which houses the Bristol SETsquared Centre, has installed a Pelipod to streamline receipt of its own deliveries and continue its model of being an early adopter of innovative technologies and methodologies.
