“First and last mile solutions in Parcel services in a B2B, B2C and C2C environment”
The speech shall focus on the following three broad topics:
1. Challenges in First and Last mile of collection and delivery.
2. Innovative Solution and its impact on environment and customers;
Green city support
B2B, B2C, C2C
Time tested in Europe
3. Background Information
The KePol (DHL brand name PACKSTATION in Germany) is innovative parcel logistics solution for the automation of the first last mile. The KePol provides services to private and business customers with all the advantages of a modern self-service system that enables the convenient, secure and cost-efficient deposit and pickup of postal deliveries on a 24/7, 365 basis.
Moreover it significantly reduces the emission of carbon dioxide and thus helps to protect the environment. This has been proved by 2,500 of such KePol systems already installed in Germany.
The KePol helps to reduce road traffic in cities which results in lower emission of greenhouse gasses and particular matters all over the world. KePol systems can play a leading role in cities’ efforts to reduce road traffic and the associated emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and particulates. This was confirmed by an independent study sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. The study showed that from January2005 to April 2006, 33 KePol distributed throughout Cologne resulted in a decrease of nearly 90,000 kilometers traveled on the city’s roads. This translates into an 11 ton reduction of the city’s CO2 emission and a one percent reduction in particulate emissions.
In 2006 the PACKSTATION (installation base: 700) drop-off point concept saved 250t of CO2 emissions in Germany and resulted in approximately 640.000 fewer kilometers traveled on Germanys roads.
The average Co2 reduction per station amounts 0.35 t p.a.
The actual network of KePols in Germany (2400 locations) reduces CO2 emissions by 1000 t by the year 2012.
