How is local pickup a greener solution?
The growth of online shopping has increased the number of delivery trucks on the road, resulting in increased harmful carbon emissions, especially in urban areas. If a delivery is missed, carriers will usually attempt a second (or even a third) delivery, further adding to emissions.
When a shopper chooses local pickup, drivers can deliver multiple packages to one place and cover fewer miles compared to driving from one home to the next.
Plus, local pickup puts convenience in shoppers’ hands. So whether they choose to collect their package from somewhere close to their home, on their commute or near their workplace, overall CO2 emissions are hugely reduced.
Why is greener shipping important?
Conscious consumerism has become an increasingly important part of today’s retail landscape and shoppers know that package deliveries contribute to harmful emissions. With more shoppers looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and help the environment, offering local pickup as a shipping method checks both the planet-friendly and convenience boxes.
