Ever thought about the CO2 emissions that come from parcel deliveries? In the UK alone, 7936 parcels are delivered every minute. That’s a lot of trips, and a lot of carbon emissions. As online shopping continues to grow, along with the number of delivery vans on our streets, our cities are becoming increasingly polluted, congested, and unliveable. Meanwhile, property managers are struggling to manage overwhelming volumes of packages.
Most companies don’t think about the carbon emissions that come from parcel deliveries to their buildings – a dangerous blind spot. Developers need to meet ESG goals not just on how they are building but on how they are operating. This is where MyPup comes in.
Consolidation is the answer
At MyPup, we have developed a parcel delivery model that alleviates pressure on the climate and environment. We collect all parcels at our hub and sort them per destination. That’s called consolidation. From there, everything is delivered in one go, with electric transport or e-bike!
That’s what distinguishes us from others. We ensure that other couriers no longer have to drive into the city – increasing efficiency and making a sustainable impact. We reduce the miles driven by couriers, meaning less traffic and CO2 emissions. In 2022, we saved 81,994 kg of CO2. That is more than 600 flights from Amsterdam to London! That’s why buildings like Matrix One in Amsterdam received an innovation credit under BREEAM for using our service.
How does this effect the user? Does it make a difference to them? A user first creates a MyPup account. When ordering online, they enter the MyPup account name and new delivery address. Their parcel will be delivered to our hub. From there, we deliver it to the Pick Up Point of their choice. This means no more missed deliveries, trips to the post office, or lost parcels.
Last-mile delivery is growing, along with the problems surrounding it. We have been committed to creating more liveable cities since 2014, but true future-proof solutions require far reaching cooperation with all parties in the chain: commercial business, real estate developers, couriers, and the government. In the Netherlands, we deliver to apartments, offices, hospitals, universities and local councils. In the UK, we are just starting.
