Target groupsOther (Customer:cityhalls. End user:urban car commuters.)
The use of existing infrastructure and growing need seems a perfect match with another daily need -groceries-. Both using electricity for cooling or car charging, and both needing to be seemlessly integrated in the way home. Cities will have to enrich their infrastructure and will need reliable partner, equipement and maintenance service.
The ParkandPickup is a city module that provides drop and pickup point for the fresh deliveries, at reach from home. Parking back home, charging the car and picking up the pre-ordered groceries. The user may have the option to preselect a list of prefered ParkandPick. From a business model side, Miele is a partner to the cities to strategize on electric points and provide the equipment to the city with a additional maintenance servicing as recuring revenue.
The pain points of many new services or commodities are their lack of integration in the existing user flow/journey., or their lack of flexibility. The Park&PickUp aims to be flexibles in term of location deliveries, time of pickup & opening times possibles, and user’s journey.
