Approximately 75% of delivery workers answered that they should be charged for re-delivery A thorough investigation into the truth of delivery workers Launched the “Let’s all help delivery workers” project Aiming to reduce working hours by 10,000 hours with delivery boxes Surprisingly unknown delivery workers Redelivery seen from Let’s support delivery workers – Reduce working hours by 1.7 hours per delivery box. With the delivery box, we aim to reduce delivery staff’s working hours and redelivery.
……
The seriousness of the re-delivery problem has become clearer as 96% of delivery workers say they want delivery boxes to become more widespread.
PYKES PEAK, a brand operated by Fun Standard Co., Ltd. (head office: Onojo City, Fukuoka Prefecture), conducted a survey of delivery workers and consumers just before the “2024 problem” in logistics. I would like to introduce to you what I have come to know about the delivery man’s truth.
Based on the results of the survey we conducted, we asked questions such as “Is redelivery stressful?” “Do you want delivery boxes to become popular?” “What kind of delivery box would you like?” “Do you agree with charging for redelivery?” We would like to introduce the current state of awareness of the “2024 problem” in logistics among employees and consumers.
74.8% of delivery workers answered that there should be a charge for redelivery.

Through the popularization of delivery boxes, we aim to reduce labor hours by 10,000 hours, address the harsh working environment of delivery workers, and solve the “2024 problem” in logistics.
Surprisingly unknown “What is lost in redelivery”
[Image 2: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-aaa6264b84a28538f7ea-5.jpg&s3=79792-255-56c5b329b3a671ffa2b4d9b488119295-3900×2595.jpg] ■What!? Don’t you get paid for re-delivery?
The typical salary system for delivery drivers is that they are paid for each completed delivery.
Unfortunately, in many cases, “unattended deliveries are not considered completed deliveries,” and even if you make two deliveries, you only get paid for one, so re-delivery does not actually earn you any compensation.
■Approximately 1.28 million yen per delivery person per year* is lost due to redelivery.
[Image 3: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-f5720277d2a973fad27d-17.jpg&s3=79792-255-3d04f687a034eb6f8a5c423077ca8972-900×235.jpg] *Calculation method: Number of operating days per year x Average number of items delivered per day x Redelivery rate x Redelivery cost ■More than one month per year per delivery person is lost due to redelivery.

*Number of operating days (264 days): 1 month, 22 days for 12 months *Re-delivery rate (11.1%): Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism website “Re-delivery rate of courier services decreased to approximately 11.1% in October 2020.”
https://www.mlit.go.jp/report/press/tokatsu01_hh_000736.html *Re-delivery fee (440 yen): Same amount as Rakuten Seiyu Net Super’s re-delivery request amount

*Re-delivery time (0.22 hours): Ministry of the Environment COOL CHOICE Courier Service
https://ondankataisaku.env.go.jp/coolchoice/lp2019/index04.html What does redelivery actually mean? Four “deliverymen’s truths” that have come to light.
Anyone who orders a courier service has probably experienced the pain of redelivery many times. However, I don’t think many people know how difficult it is for delivery workers.
I would like to share with you the current state of redelivery, as learned from interviews with delivery staff.
[Image 5: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-19D39CB0533E8B32B86C-20.jpg &s3=79792-255-D5BC39881756E19D919D91A86186B96B96b96b96b96b96 d2-1040×1040.jpg]
■Honne 1: Redelivery is essentially free work…
Redelivery is a service. For delivery workers who earn money on commission, if they are unable to complete a delivery, they end up working for free.
You shouldn’t ask for redelivery based on your own personal
circumstances, but there are times when a delivery arrives at a time when you can’t receive it, and you are forced to work for free. ■Honne 2: I want you to avoid specifying the time as much as possible (especially at night).
“Let’s specify a time at night after work to make sure we receive it.” Being considerate towards the delivery person may actually be causing the delivery person a lot of trouble…
Nighttime deliveries are convenient times for many people to pick up their items, so delivery staff receive a tremendous amount of time requests. Currently, there is no system in place to refuse a scheduled flight, so there is a possibility of a flat tire.
[Image 6: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-4f61c99421258d730745-20.jpg&s3=79792-255-4f53d843979947a30fd6879b1a18a4ef-1040×1040.jpg] ■Honestly 3: I visited the place many times before submitting an absentee ballot.
Delivery staff may not enter absentee notes during the day to avoid specifying delivery times at night. Why? This is because if there is an absentee ballot, there is a high probability that the time will be specified at night. The number of absentee tickets does not equal the redelivery rate, but there are many “invisible redeliveries.” ■Honne 4: 1 hour and 20 minutes wasted every day due to redelivery Assuming that 1 hour and 20 minutes, or 11.1%, of the 8 hours is used for redelivery.
When you think about the fact that 1 hour and 20 minutes of your time is wasted every day, you can understand why delivery staff dislike re-delivery.
Further damage from the “2024 problem” in logistics
■Decrease in compensation and increase in burden due to the “2024 problem” in logistics
This is a further blow to delivery workers who are already facing serious problems with redelivery.
This is the “2024 problem” of logistics.
Working hours will be limited to 960 hours from April 1, 2024, which will help resolve the harsh long working hours problem, but it has been pointed out that on the other hand, there is a possibility of reduced wages and labor shortages. .
■ Negative spiral due to labor shortage
Working hours will be limited to 960 hours from April 1, 2024, which will help resolve the harsh long working hours problem, but it has been pointed out that on the other hand, there is a possibility of reduced wages and labor shortages. .
Working hours are restricted → salaries are reduced → people quit → burden increases → people quit…
Large-scale labor shortages may occur due to restrictions on working hours. The government estimates that transportation capacity may be short 14.2% in 2024 and 34.1% in 2030.
Conducted an awareness survey regarding the “2024 problem” in logistics Based on this background, PYKES PEAK conducted a survey of delivery workers and consumers just before the “2024 problem” in logistics. ■Approximately 75% of delivery staff think that redelivery should be charged. As mentioned earlier, redeliveries are essentially working without remuneration, so there are many calls for charging for re-deliveries.
[Image 7: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-bc5ffb7dba6b58168f30-0.jpg&s3=79792-255-23bec9510ab5277211bb906c1a947e82-1000×800.jpg] ■Approximately 96% of delivery workers say they want delivery boxes to become popular.
We found that delivery boxes are overwhelmingly requested by delivery drivers. There were almost no negative comments. We found that almost all delivery workers want a delivery box.
[Image 8: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-cabd07b4e1c955ded904-1.jpg&s3=79792-255-ad78de8650ee131d28ed1052221beb3f-1000×800.jpg] ■Do you feel stressed when customers are absent? →63.2%
It was found that over 60% of respondents feel stressed when customers are absent. Furthermore, more than 40% of the respondents felt highly stressed, indicating that just being absent is causing psychological damage to delivery workers.
[Image 9: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-5b4d924b6fef1028f8cb-11.jpg&s3=79792-255-f5d9d56a2e51158e84ed28cd4a3fe600-1000×800.jpg] ■More than 90% said they felt even more stressed by the absence of a specified date and time.
It was found that the stress caused when an order with a specified date and time was placed in a customer’s absence was greater than when placing a regular order. If you specify a specific time, you will have to rush or rush to meet the deadline, which may be more stressful than regular deliveries.
[Image 10: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-a6fd83022c97c300161c-11.jpg&s3=79792-255-8b3b4f7c5bba5785b2e0afb37a179a1e-1000×800.jpg] On the other hand, what is the perception on the consumer side? “Although they feel sorry for redelivery, 18% of people actually took measures.”
While delivery workers are demanding delivery boxes and are stressed about re-delivery, what do consumers think?
Consumers were also surveyed to find out their perceptions regarding redelivery.
[Image 11: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-ab1b64de60cf17e35fb9-19.jpg&s3=79792-255-9de13139291687bc39dd7f4ed04fa736-2121×1414.jpg] ■I feel sorry when requesting redelivery → “95%”
The majority of consumers (approximately 95%) felt sorry for redelivery. As a consumer, I’ve found that I feel guilty having to go through the trouble of having items delivered to the same location over and over again.
[Image 12: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-a0b7b666e57fb59f6bbe-4.jpg&s3=79792-255-4d36fde935e6a3f10cc6e09397c26b63-1000×800.jpg] ■“Have you ever taken any action?”→Remains at 17.5%.
Nearly 95% of consumers felt sorry, but in contrast, only 17.5% of consumers had taken specific action. It is thought that many consumers feel guilty but do not know what to do or have not taken the step to incur the cost.
[Image 13: https://prtimes.jp/i/79792/255/resize/d79792-255-b67b70f44d81c53d607f-3.jpg&s3=79792-255-4bc4716c346dc4b88da0c02596f6713f-1000×800.jpg] As mentioned above, the feelings of consumers who feel sorry but are unable to take actual action have become clear.

“Many people say that there are many types of delivery boxes and it is difficult to understand.”
■Delivery worker: “I find it difficult to understand how to use the delivery box” → 51%
Currently, delivery boxes are sold by many manufacturers, but each manufacturer has a variety of ways to use them, and we believe that delivery people feel that there are too many types and it is difficult to understand. You can
