Join a University of Washington pilot study at 5th Ave. N. & John St. near the Space Needle


Getting your packages has never been easier.

We are excited to offer a convenient, safe, and secure way for customers to retrieve packages in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. With our new smart locker program, you can enjoy self-service, contact-free onsite pickup of parcels from all delivery carriers (USPS, UPS, Amazon, FedEx, DHL). The lockers are easily accessible 24/7 so you can retrieve packages for free at your convenience. 

This locker system is part of a three-year study at the Urban Freight Lab at the University of Washington focused on understanding and reducing congestion and emissions in cities. This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and is a collaboration between the City of Seattle, King County Metro, Sound Transit, CBRE, Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, and the City of Bellevue.
