The way we shop has changed, but the way deliveries work hasn’t. Instead of purchasing items from brick-and-mortar retail stores, a rapidly growing number of items are bought online, but delivery companies like the U.S. Post Office and FedEx are still using the same delivery models as they did prior to the e-commerce boom.

Kojo explores the unintended consequences of e-commerce– city streets congested with delivery trucks– as well as potential solutions.
