COUNTLESS STUDENTS, ONE WAY TO SIMPLIFY PACKAGE MANAGEMENT
College students are among the largest groups of online shoppers in the world. According to a study conducted by SheerID, online shopping is increasing year over year by 13% among college students. In 2012, 77% of students reported shopping online within the previous 30 days. That number has since increased, especially with non-urban campuses, where students tend to do a majority of shopping online. Most students who live in on-campus housing facilities do not have cars, and every campus is limited in its shopping resources. Given this information, and the evident trends in online shopping, the volume of packages that university dorms can expect to receive is alarming. In addition, online grocery shopping is an increasing trend. College students are prime candidates for these grocery deliveries.Read more
Nowadays, dorms receive high volumes of packages every day—families send care packages and students regularly shop online. Resident assistants and administrative staff spend hours each day accepting and sorting package deliveries and facilitating pickup. These tasks are time-consuming and an inefficient use of resources.
