Throughout this chapter, Saba has aimed to go in greater depth into its experience with its car parks as sustainable services hubs, designed for people and goods. While there are services that are unequivocally part of one of these two territories, there are others that are positioned halfway and that are the perfect blend of the two. We refer to the delivery of e-commerce products to smart lockers located in Saba’s car parks.
On the one hand, these offer a service to those people who cannot receive their packages at home, but they also open a route for countless logistics operators, who drastically reduce travel by making use of them. Society needs to rethink the current home delivery model, which has shown itself not to be viable environmentally.
Promoting the culture of collecting Internet purchases at e-commerce lockers – which also allow for returns – reduces city centre traffic and pollution, in line with sustainable micro-distribution.

Saba offers this solution in combination with various brands in Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom and is confident that it will be a growing line of business. The strategic, capillary location of the hubs and 24/7 service are the main allies to ensure their success.
