Challenge / Goal

More and more customers turn to online shopping to run their daily errands. This also brings more delivery trucks to urban districts on a daily basis. A central point of delivery for various items, whether business-related or private, could make this situation less straining for the daily life in the city: It can save CO2 emissions because it provides an alternative to individual delivery. If deliveries to one district are made to a single or just a few boxes instead of visiting every customer individually, the frequency and number of delivery truck visits can be reduced.  

Solutions

The City of Munich is currently testing two “Shared District Boxes” located in the proximity of mobility stations in the Smarter Together project area. The Shared District Box, the first one of its kind with different temperature compartments (cooling, refrigerated or at a constant ambient temperature) enables companies to easily deliver their goods to a central location accessible to consumers 24/7. Additionally, this central point of delivery can also double as an opportunity of depositing and sharing items amongst neighbours. An age verification terminal ensures that goods intended for adults can only be accessed by adults. GetNow is the first delivery partner for testing the boxes in the project area.
