Need for efficient, smart and automated last-mile solutions

E-commerce and parcel volumes booming

Parcel traffic has increased significantly in recent years, bringing about an urgent need for a more efficient last-mile delivery solution. Traditional methods, including home delivery, manned pick-up points and 1st generation parcel lockers, are too costly and can’t be scaled to current and predicted volumes without significant drawbacks. The increase in parcel traffic that we’ve seen is only the beginning, but Agora 24/7 is perfectly placed to meet future demands and offer a solution to the challenges that the industry is facing.

Changing consumer needs

As consumers are shifting more and more towards online shopping, their needs are changing. While traditional delivery methods are too slow and inconvenient for frequent e-commerce customers, our automated outdoor delivery points offer the convenience of 24/7 access and faster deliveries. What’s more, our solution can help make cities more sustainable and people friendly by reducing traffic congestion, noise and emissions.

Our technology

Fast and fully automated

Agora helps make last-mile deliveries more cost efficient by offering advantages that save time and costs. Our solution provides up-to-date capacity information to couriers, making it easier to optimize delivery routes. The fully automated one-door design of our units reduces parcel drop-off and pick-up times significantly compared to traditional parcel lockers with multiple doors. 

24/7 outdoor access

Round-the-clock outdoor access means couriers can drive right up to the unit for drop-off and pick-up, eliminating the need for time- and space-consuming trolleys and carts. Traffic congestion in urban areas decreases as delivery trucks can operate during less congested hours and the diminished space requirement means smaller vehicles can be used for deliveries. 

Best-in-class user experience

With 24/7 access, consumers can pick up their parcels without needing to worry about opening hours. Agora’s intuitive user interface makes parcel retrieval simple and fast and on-screen content can easily be tailored to include e.g. scannable codes, satisfaction surveys and targeted promotions.

Software

Seamless integrations

Agora’s open-source cloud-based service can easily be integrated in a plug-and-play manner into any ERP system by using our APIs. 

Data-driven optimisation

The Agora delivery solution provides actionable, real-time data including capacity information, parcel delivery and unloading times, parcel pick-up time and return frequency etc. to help logistics carriers plan and optimize their delivery operations.

Scalable, agile, future proof

With no end to the e-commerce and parcel delivery boom in sight, logistics companies need a last-mile delivery solution that can grow with them. Agora’s infinitely agile open-source system is scalable and offers multiple modalities for creating value and generating revenue.
