Delivery trucks are blanketing neighborhoods with holiday-related shopping finds this season, but rather than visiting the same house daily (or even in the same day) could there be a better way? The team behind The Eighth Notch thinks so, offering a technology-based solution for final-mile sustainability. On this episode of InTek Freight & Logistics: The Podcast, The Eighth Notch Founding Member and Head of Retail Solutions Mike Robinson joins us to talk about what the solution does, how it reduces carbon by reducing stops (and trips), and how retailers and carriers can save resources and money in the process.
Mike also discusses consumer attitudes toward sustainability, how Amazon is helping, and why the fastest delivery is often not the most efficient. He goes into how the pandemic-related ecommerce boom helped birth the idea as well. Plus, he shares his experiences in the retail industry as it relates to the holiday shopping season and discusses how this year and the traditional Black Friday are different - both broadly and at home.
