Customer attitudes are changing
According to our recent survey, 86% of consumers would like the option of having their parcels delivered to a local hub to reduce carbon emissions.
Furthermore, 32% of customers think sustainability in shipping is more important than speed or costs.
Delivery density is key to ecommerce sustainability
By using a parcel collection point network like HUBBED, carriers, retailers and consumers can reduce their carbon emissions.
Carriers reduce their carbon emissions by almost half (up to 0.47kg C02e per kilometre) simply through delivery density to one location rather than several separate locations. All HUBBED carrier partners benefit if they use the HUBBED network.
Retailers can meet consumer demand for a more sustainable option in parcel delivery as consumers can opt to pick up their parcel at a location that’s convenient to their schedule and lifestyle.
The HUBBED network helps carriers and retailers by reducing the number of vehicle trips with consolidated deliveries nationwide. HUBBED are certified as carbon neutral by the Carbon Reduction Institute and were amongst the first in the logistics industry to earn this certification.
Individual deliveries to multiple homes creates increased emissions. HUBBED locations creates delivery density for customer pick up. Customer collection largely occurs as part of an existing trip which creates a net reduction in C02 and congestion.
