The Smartmile Open Doors initiative
Imagine having the power to turn your deliveries into something sustainable, would you make it happen? In the Open Doors initiative we dedicate compartment doors to sustainability. Failed deliveries are one of the main drivers for CO2 emission in the last-mile. If we want delivery to turn greener we should change that. We launched the initiative to raise awareness for the possibility of green delivery, and make our world just that bit greener. Our aim is to work until delivery protects Mama Earth.
Planting trees is only a means to compensate for footprint, we’d rather inspire our customers and partners to think with us about how to eliminate the footprint all together. We plant the trees and work to minimize failed deliveries, but may we suggest you visit our machines by bike? Sounds like a great plan doesn’t it?

1st Open Doors to reforestation
We launched the Open Doors initiative in the Netherlands in collaboration with Eden Reforestation Projects. Every Smartmile Hub in the Netherlands includes one uniques door. We track every parcel passing through this door, whether that is a shipment, return or pick-up. Per transaction, the tree counter goes up and the Smartmile forest grows.

Green Friday as the launch of #OpenDoors
To kick-off #OpenDoors we turned Black Friday green. By entering into a partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, we dedicated all compartments of seven Dutch delivery machines to reforestation, marking the start to our long-term sustainable initiative.
