On-Line Purchasing Driving More Traffic in Suburbs and Middle-Sized Communities

As indicated in this article, communities concerned about increased traffic resulting from new carrier delivery terminals need to be watching such initiatives closely, as the development of new micro-fulfillment centers will be following new delivery terminals.

Purchasing merchandise on-line with same-day delivery options originating from local, micro-fulfillment centers, will also drive more traffic in neighborhoods…it is that simple! Compounding this problem is the growth of on-demand delivery companies whose productivity is a fraction of the integrated carrier productivity (UPS/FedEx), which results in more vehicles on the road carrying fewer parcels.

E-commerce and same-day, on-demand delivery is a necessity and worth the increased traffic related hassles where you live…right?
