The ones becoming available here in Australia are for large parcels delivered to your home.
IIRC They have a key that can be opened by the post office people to place the parcel/s, and another key for yourself to retrieve the parcel.
They are purchased by the home owner so that things like ebay purchases can be left without having to go back to the post office to get them.

They are a source of packing materials (satchels, boxes, tape) that can be used to enclose your parcel before it is sent.

There may be an attached mailing box suitable for the parcels, with some way for paying for the postage.
