The Doorstep Problem
Millions of people shop online everyday
Yet, there is no secure and reliable way to Send and Return items directly from their homes!
Last Mile problems relating to missed delivery of packages results in over $21 Million in lost revenue daily. It is estimated that every time a courier fails to deliver at first attempt, it costs their company $15! In 2015 Fedex handled 6.9 million packages per day day with 20% of those deliveries not being made on their first attempt.
Difficulty returning unsuitable purchases is a growing consumer pain point. 72% Of online shoppers said they would be Very Likely, or More Likely to shop with retailers that made the Returns Process Easier. (Metapack 2016 State of ECommerce Delivery)
Every year thousands of packages containing valuable online purchases are stolen from consumers front door. According to police stats, 1 in 4 people will be the victim of package theft at some point in their life. Preventing package theft is a multi-billion dollar opportunity in the US alone.
