It is increasingly a pest in Amsterdam and other major Dutch (and Belgian) cities. With the ever increasing popularity of webshoppen drive more and more couriers by the centre. Or cracks. The trend is enhanced by the fact that vans and trucks are getting smaller: for environmental reasons, and the desire to be great vehicles to fend off. the
After previously Safe Traffic Netherlands all alarmsloeg over dozens of vans per day in residential streets, are now in Amsterdam shopkeepers sounding the alarm. “It is not normal to a pair of jeans (jeans, red.), headphones or ink cartridges for your printer in a big box to deliver to your front door, while the other traffic is unimpeded,” says Guido Frankfurther of MKB Amsterdam, the netherlands.
After ‘vliegschaamte to introduce Amsterdam retailers a new word: ‘bezorgschaamte’. "When I see how many packages there alone, in my apartment complex daily to be issued... It would be good if people are going to be ashamed of if online purchased products are delivered to your home.” the
To a tsunami of bezorgbusjes, cargo bikes and e-bikes to prevent, consumers need to their order, therefore, to pick up at the Albert Heijn, Primera (a chain of tobacconists, ed.) or other pakketpunt. Or even better: they are going to just go back to a physical store. "Figure it out myself and purchase products in the store is a positive experience, and reduces the return,” is the opinion of Frankfurther. the
MKB Amsterdam wants consumers to receive a discount if they order online, pick-up and pay more if they purchased a home to be delivered. “So you create an incentive for behavioural change.” the
Frankfurther disputed that the proposal is a disguised way to get people to ordinary retailers. "It is inspired because of the deteriorating accessibility of the city centre. But the plea for ordinary stores. That are under pressure.”
