Learn the Hidden Cost of Managing Package Deliveries
- Jun 22, 2020
Managing package deliveries to your building can be tedious and time-consuming, but did you know it can also be expensive?
In 2019, more than 10 billion packages were delivered in the U.S., and that number is expected to double by 2025. Said another way: last year, on average, each American received 33 packages. So if you happen to own or manage a residential property with 200 units, 6,600 of those 10 billion packages were delivered to your building. But the story doesn’t end there.
Every time a package is delivered to your building, your front desk needs to accept it, store it, and then retrieve it when your resident comes to collect. This takes away time from the more important tasks your front desk should be doing, and the reason you probably hired them in the first place. Tasks such as greeting residents, managing visitors, and maintaining overall building security.
So, how much is managing package deliveries costing your building?
