Besser arbeiten auf der letzten Meile

Working better on the last mile

Work in the delivery and delivery services sector is undergoing a massive upheaval. Since 2019, the volume of deliveries has more than doubled while the number of employees has remained the same. This threatens to massively overload delivery employees. At the same time, there is a lack of ergonomic principles in the service sector. MotionMiners GmbH and MTM ASSOCIATION e. V. are currently working on a preliminary study in the parcel delivery sector. The goal: better work on the last mile.
