Johan Peeters, innovation consultant at Fishermen, formerly at bpost, explains the development of bpost’s EcoZones.
According to Peeters, the postal operator began the EcoZones by shifting the Mechelen region to emission-free vehicles, while deploying charging infrastructure and electric vehicles. bpost then moved to bikes and bike trailers. Following this, bpost worked to change consumers’ and receivers’ behavior by installing automated parcel lockers within walking distance of each of the consumers’ houses in a city of 80,000 inhabitants.
