About Us

Kinek has developed a nationwide network of business locations that provide alternative delivery locations for e-commerce shoppers. By directing their deliveries to a KinekPoint location, consumers need not worry about doorstop theft or missing deliveries and retrieving packages from courier outlets.

Using the Kinek website, a consumer selects a delivery location called a KinekPoint from a number of community-based businesses such as mail and parcel stores. When their package arrives at the KinekPoint partner location, the user receives an email and text message notification alerting them that their delivery is ready to be picked up at their convenience. In addition to reducing risk and added convenience, many consumers are pleased to know that they are able to reduce their carbon footprint by shopping on-line and reducing the "last mile" delivery truck rolls.

Kinek is creating an ecosystem by linking merchants, delivery firms, receiving locations and consumers in providing a package delivery system that is streamlined, efficient, convenient, and secure.
