“Going green,” “sustainability,” “environmentally friendly” are all well-worn messages - and this is not a bad thing. After all, sustainability is an issue constantly increasing its awareness to the degree that businesses are affected by it.

Customer preferences and new laws are shaping new rules. As Greta Thunberg once stated, “Change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

Impact of green delivery on customers satisfaction?

The rise in e-commerce around the globe had other impacts. For example, there has been a rapid increase in the number of delivery vehicles on the roads. Simultaneously, data shows that customers are more environmentally conscious than ever.

Also, this is not just a trend. Forbes published a study in 2018 around the fact that “88% of Customers Want You To Help Them Make A Difference.” McKinsey has a more recent article on how sustainability is being prioritized. 

Almost all delivery vans are diesel and have thus been repeatedly criticized for adding to the ever-growing levels of air pollution in several cities around the world. Companies should continuously consider adapting faster and more economical delivery solutions as consumers are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious.

The future of e-commerce will soon add to the industry’s capability to source innovative solutions and grow more sustainable green delivery alternatives, thereby enhancing the customer service experience.

The power of true sustainability messaging

It’s no longer an option for brands to ignore sustainability issues. As it becomes more inherent in the brand-consumer relationship and purchasing, there’s an opportunity to win favor with the right approach.

Green delivery is the most ethical method of transporting products. Therefore, substantially reduce their carbon footprints.

A retailer can propagate this by applying alternative and eco-friendly options. The key is to be authentic and transparent regarding goals & sustainable plans.

The potential to stand out

Improving competitiveness in the online world never has been more critical, given the dramatic growth in online order volumes.

Providing a “green button” that online buyers can choose to delay home deliveries is not enough. The seller’s logistics network must deliver on this green promise while meeting customer’s deadlines who still expect fast delivery.
