As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
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. In an increasingly dense, urban environment like the Washington metropolitan region, an ever-larger number of delivery trucks are clogging city streets, often idling and blocking traffic on one way roads. Kojo explores the unintended consequences of e-commerce– city streets congested with delivery trucks– as well as potential solutions.
