Could regulation drive open locker network growth?
Carbon neutral goals have brought innovations to existing carrier models. As various countries consider regulations to reinforce climate initiatives, carriers will be pushed to further rethink their strategies. An open locker network shared by more than one carrier can reduce environmental impact by consolidating first mile and last mile deliveries. This session will review the roll-out and usage of the successful Japanese network, including consumer survey results. We will review the potential climate impact and the added operational benefits of an open locker network and review implementation factors based on market behaviour and carrier profiles.
