I'm indifferent to the tag name. Other possibilities are parcel locker
or parcel terminal. Some statistics from Google:

"parcel locker": about 200.000 results
"parcel terminal": about 153.000 results
"parcel station": about 109.000 results
"parcel machine": about 41.400 results

Maybe parcel locker is the most descriptive one.

In any case it seems that only DHL (Germany) uses this term. (I've
never heard it. They're called 'My Post 24' in CH.)
