Can fast home deliveries for e-commerce be efficient?

Kan raske leveranser for netthandel også være effektive? Analyse av Porterbuddys hjemleveringsløsning i Stor-Oslo

Online shopping has grown significantly over time. From society's point of view, it is of interest that such a development is met in a way that provides the lowest possible traffic with associated disadvantages such as noise, emissions and accidents. There is therefore a need for knowledge about what kind of traffic and emission consequences different delivery solutions have. In this report, the authors consider Porterbuddy's home delivery service for online shopping in the Oslo area. Based on real data from Porterbuddy's operations, the authors calculate how much transport these operations generate compared to what they find in a survey that maps journeys to and from collection points for online shopping that the customers themselves visit. The authors find that with sufficiently high volumes, Porterbuddy's distribution solution will have a comparable and probably also lower traffic and emission load than an average journey to and from a collection point.
