Online shopping has brought a lot of comfort to our lives. Why go to the shop if the product can be delivered at your home? A side effect of this new way of shopping is that our streets are now often blocked by delivery vans. This not only creates frustration for many people, it leads to dangerous situations as well. Wuunder created an App with which we can make use of carrier services more efficiently. But is this really going to solve the problem?
Couriers deliver a serious traffic problem
Delivery vans clogging up the major cities cause some serious nuisance. A recently conducted survey shows the scale of the problem. More than half of the interviewed-citizens living in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven see at least one courier van a day. Nearly 20% of respondents think these couriers often create dangerous situations for everyone around them. At the same time the survey also showed that around 40% of respondents are part of the problem as they order packages online at least once a month. The survey was conducted on behalf of Wuunder, the startup that wants to make package delivery more efficient. Most of these courier vans are far from full. Using carriers and their courier services more efficiently means less vans blocking your street. This is where Wuunder comes in.
