The detrimental impact on the environment through traditional delivery solutions is well known. The rise of e-commerce has amplified this as thousands of delivery vehicles roam the suburbs, polluting the atmosphere.
In Australia, last mile delivery vans typically emit around 200g of carbon dioxide per kilometre*. A 10km courier delivery produces two kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). And that doesn’t include the journey to the pickup point.
Good corporate citizens try to minimise or offset the amount of CO2 produced in their supply chain. However, offsets or carbon credits are poor alternatives to not producing carbon dioxide in the first place.
Passel can help reduce your carbon footprint.
Passel’s unique on-demand model uses the spare capacity of people on their way home from the shops to complete the delivery. The additional carbon pollution produced by Passel Delivery Members (Passers) while performing a delivery, is close to zero.
In fact, Passers do not even have to drive a car to make a delivery. They deliver from buses, trams, trains, pushbikes, or simply walk.
