Opening doors to a sustainable
world, one delivery at a time
We are on a mission to change delivery globally.
Even if all players in delivery act sustainably, there is still a missing link needed to align stakeholder efforts and eliminate delivery’s environmental footprint. To optimise the industry as a whole, a solution is needed to connect consumer, courier, retailer, and city in one delivery ecosystem. Perhaps even make it CO2 negative in the process…
We are that missing link that balances the delivery ecosystem. And that’s what makes us unique!

Making delivery sustainable in three steps
1. Building ecosystems of parcel lockers to get deliveries from any courier shipped to central locations
With our software, we can connect every courier in the city to our parcel lockers aka Smartmile Hubs. At one hub you can pick up, return, and ship parcels from any courier. The alternative would be to drive around to different pick-up points across the city or for couriers to drive to individual houses. We know that by connecting both courier and customer both could drive a lot less. In the end, we want to see less traffic in city centres, minimised stops and trips and no more CO2.
You can find our hubs at convenient locations like supermarkets. Why? We want you to combine trips to minimise your footprint even more. But connecting couriers is only the first step… And that is not the whole ecosystem we envision…
We open our hubs to local couriers too so we can...
2. Shape CO2 free delivery from consumer to warehouse with one connecting software
Imagine if all our courier partners would deliver to the Hubs with CO2 free vehicles. Secondly, connecting local bike couriers to the same ecosystem and invite customers to request a pick up or return per bike instead of driving from their home to our hubs themselves. To Build these kind of services with multiple players you need one software that can talk to all systems.
What we build is an ecosystem of lockers powered by a software that can talk to all. We are the connector that empowers delivery in one system to make delivery more convenient for anyone in the supply chain. Less money, time, and footprint.
Last step, inviting retail and sustainable initiatives to finish the ecosystem
3. We invite retailers to join the ecosystem to automate click and collect or bring sustainable services to live.
Being part of our ecosystem means working together. With our software as the connecting link, we could set up a services together where one of our compartments could be used to exchange reusable packaging, rental equipment, or repaired phones. Directly between retailer and customer, or with a sustainable delivery service.
These types of solutions are generally complex and expensive to develop. So we made Smartmile building blocks a part of our software to make development simple and affordable. All the hard parts are already taken care of by us. All that’s left is getting creative.
We build with players like DHL Matkahuolto and Lidl
Growing our infrastructure fast by combining our software with strong expertise in location permits and more.

Sustainability delivered at our core
We take delivery beyond the exchange of parcels and set sustainability as our goal by expanding our machines’ potential to develop sustainable services. Think retailer-to-consumer delivery, collecting reusable packaging through our machines, minimizing failed deliveries, and offering combined order storage; and that’s just the start.
If we want to change the industry, we have to rethink what delivery could be and take our partners along for the ride.
As one of our first sustainable innovations, we launched our #OpenDoors initiative in the Netherlands, dedicating several of our compartments to reforestation.
