Amsterdam, 26th of September – Irish property management company Hali has chosen MyPup as its partner for sustainable parcel delivery in their new residential community at the leading Dublin development of Cherrywood. The entire parcel flow will be arranged by MyPup. The logistics service provider collects all parcels in a hub outside the city and then takes them to unmanned pick-up points in the apartment buildings, after which residents receive a notification. MyPup is now active in the Netherlands at more than 300 locations and internationally in London, Berlin, Munich and Dublin.
The Cherrywood development, located in South Dublin, is one of the largest urban developments in Europe with an area of 388 acres. The project meets the highest sustainability and future-proofing requirements on various points.
Sustainable solution for flow of parcels
For Hali, 1,127 new apartments are scheduled to come onstream this year and next. The first phase of 202 units in the pet-friendly Hunt building, welcomed first residents in July. Managing Director, Benjamin Preece: “Dublin is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe and with that great growth comes a great responsibility to make more sustainable choices. As a property manager, it is also our mission to contribute to this and MyPup fits in perfectly with this, as a smart and sustainable solution for a modern issue. It’s a great service for Hali residents!” This is the first project for MyPup in Ireland. Next phase will be launching with the opening of applications in September.
Martijn van Schaveren, co-founder of MyPup, explains about this expansion: “We’re very excited to add another new city in our portfolio. The city of Dublin is very similar to Amsterdam in terms of compactness, congestion and the many international companies that reside there. We are already noticing that there is a lot of interest there from other real estate developers, managers and companies in our service, so we expect to continue growing here in the near future!”
Last-mile sustainability a must
Parcel delivery is increasingly becoming a burden on a city’s infrastructure. Think of reduced air quality, unsafe traffic situations and traffic congestion. Congestion costs cities a lot of money: according to a study (2016) by the municipality of Dublin, this costs the city 350 million euros per year. Van Schaveren further explains: “Last-mile delivery can make a significant contribution to reducing exhaust gasses, congestion and delivery costs. It is the last step of the delivery process and the step that has the most impact on the city. Just think of that delivery van that is blocking the street or the delivery person who can’t find an address. By dealing with those last kilometers in a smarter way, you have a direct impact on safety on the street, there is less traffic and you emit less CO2. We are therefore also proud of our customers such as Hali, who understand that cities play a role in innovation within the existing space and infrastructure. Only in this way will cities become future-proof.”
