Amazon has launched a new service called Hub, which is a locker system that allows delivery people to drop off parcels for you even when you aren’t home.

The units currently start at six feet wide, and include a number of lockers with a touch screen embedded in the middle of the unit.

Once your parcel has been delivered, you get a notification with a code.

You put the code into The Hub and your locker panel will open revealing your delivery.

They appear to be similar to Amazon's existing parcel drop off stations which have been installed in a number of public locations in the UK and US.

What is interesting about the new service is that Amazon is allowing the locker to be used by any delivery service.
