Subsidy to promote the installation of delivery boxes in Nagahama City 長浜市宅配ボックス設置促進補助金
Subsidy to promote the installation of delivery boxes in Nagahama City [Issuance start:2023]
Is there a relationship between delivery boxes and the environment?
It is said that about 50 years have passed since the current form of home delivery service started. However, due to the expansion of online shopping in recent years, there will be approximately 4.95 billion units in fiscal 2021, an increase of more than 50% compared to 2008. On the other hand, according to the survey results of October 2022, about 11.8% were redeliveries.
In most cases, redelivery is done using automobiles such as trucks. Approximately 10% of redelivery is equivalent to 60,000 drivers annually, the amount of CO2 emitted from trucks is estimated to be approximately 254,000 tons annually (estimated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in 2020). Courier redelivery also places a burden on the global environment.
Therefore, from 2023, Nagahama city will issue subsidies for the purchase of a delivery box with the aim of preventing global warming by reducing carbon dioxide emissions by eliminating redelivery of parcels.
