BufferBox – Great new business acquired by Google
Parcel storage system firm Bufferbox is Google’s latest acquisition. The Canadian firm, which acts as a physical drop box, posted the news on its blog on Friday afternoon. The move is an attempt to make up some of the ground with Amazon, which has been rolling out its delivery lockers in Seattle, Washington D.C., London, and NY this year.
As ever, Google isn’t commenting on the purchase, but Bufferbox, which has plans to launch 100 lockers in and around Toronto and Hamilton, merely says that it’s happy “to continue building out our vision within Google.”
