Metapack, a global leader in ecommerce delivery technology, today announced that Homerr, a logistic tech scale-up, has joined its Delivery Manager Platform, enabling retailers to offer their consumers with a more sustainable and social method of receiving and returning parcels. The partnership has gone live across 2000+ locations in The Netherlands and Belgium, providing consumers in the region with greater control and certainty in the delivery of their parcels.
Available on Metapack’s global delivery management platform, Homerr has created a new simple sustainable and innovative delivery solution for consumers, allowing them to collect and return parcels through social (at home) and service point locations, such as local stores and delivery hubs. Homerr’s specific focus on sustainability has pushed them to be label-less and to use pre-existing delivery routes, enabling them to save up to 79% CO2 emissions per parcel.
With more people buying online than ever before, sustainability is fast becoming a top consideration for consumers before they choose to buy. According to new research from Metapack, almost 75% of online shoppers have stated they consider measures to make deliveries more sustainable. Alongside this, 32% of consumers have stated that sustainability is the most important factor when selecting delivery options.
“In today’s retail climate, it’s imperative that retailers are able to offer their consumers with sustainable delivery options,” said David Randall, Director of Sustainability at Metapack. “We’re delighted to have Homerr’s innovative social and sustainable solution join our platform. Working together across The Netherlands and Belgium, we’ll be able to not only make it easier for our retailers to fulfil the growing consumer appetite for greener deliveries but also provide them with a flexible and convenient method of receiving deliveries that can be tailored to individual lifestyles,” finished Randall.
“Sustainability has become a powerful value proposition to increasingly conscious consumers. Our goal is to make sustainability as customer friendly as possible, and to make consumers more aware of their online purchases,” said Juriaan Matthijssen, Founder and Managing Director at Homerr.
“Over the past few years, we’re proud to have seen phenomenal progress at Homerr, we’ve grown from a start-up to an internationally operating organisation. Now working together with Metapack, we are making ecommerce logistics more social and sustainable,” stated Mark-Jan Pieterse, Co-founder at Homerr.
