A Good Action - with home delivery

Local coordinated home deliveries – a test project for Eskilstuna residents

In a time of uncertainty and restrictions that hit physical trade hard, an already ongoing work on coordinated freight transport has developed into home delivery of goods to Eskilstuna's residents. These days, the service is being launched in a unique collaboration between Position Eskilstuna, Tuna Park, Retuna Återbruksgalleria, Freelway and Energy Evolution Center.

The pilot project will be launched in the coming days A good deed – with a home run where Eskilstuna's residents have the opportunity to order goods from connected stores and have them delivered to their home already the same day. In this way, you can continue to shop at home and support the local business community.

We have of course seen a greater demand for being able to shop safely from a distance but still locally, so it was a matter of course for us to be part of this pilot project, says Veronica Gustafsson center manager at Tuna Park.

The project A good deed – with a home run has sprung from an already ongoing work at the Energy Evolution Center that has been further developed in collaboration with the initiative Shop for Eskilstuna. In a resource-efficient way, the project establishes a distribution chain that ensures home deliveries to private individuals. The deliveries are coordinated via Freelway's innovative digital transport system where local actors work together to deliver goods directly to the customer's home.

We want the residents of Eskilstuna to continue to be able to take advantage of our stores' fantastic recycled selection. Therefore, it feels good to be able to offer home deliveries that are also coordinated for reduced climate impact, says Sofia Bystedt center manager at ReTuna Recycling Gallery.

A good deed – with a home run must contribute to efficient utilization of resources, reduce the risk of infection, increase service and at the same time benefit our local business life.

Shop for Eskilstuna wants to increase awareness of shopping locally in Eskilstuna's business community. It is not just about business between citizens and businesses, but also between businesses and businesses or between private and public. If more people choose to shop at home, more people have a job to go to, it contributes to a greater range and increased service while we create a living city.

The project and campaign Handla för Eskilstuna is an initiative stemming from Business Plan Eskilstuna and has its basis in the unique cooperation regarding trade that is ongoing between Position Eskilstuna, Tuna Park, Gamla staden, Torshälla handel, Folkesta trade area and Destination Eskilstuna.
