Instabox is a growing tech startup that wants to change the logistics industry. We deliver your parcel to one of our smart boxes, seven days a week, as it should be. You pick it up with a pin code, without ever having to spend a second waiting in line. 

We started in 2015 with the first line of code written in a small basement in Stockholm. Today, we can proudly say that we still write our own code and that we now have over +350 smart boxes across the country.

We break new ground on a daily basis and our users keep getting amazed by our fast and convenient express deliveries. Since we are developing our own technology we can control everything from architecture to technology choices.
