Description

BoxPal provides a means for neighbors to create their own networks of trusted individuals to take delivery, pick up, safeguard, and re-deliver packages and parcels for which the intended recipients desire safekeeping.

On-line purchasing has brought about the unintended consequence of front porch piracy. According to CNBC, “an estimated 36% of Americans have had a package stolen from outside their home at least once”. Front porch piracy is costly for on-line retailers as well as consumers. According to smart-locker retailer Smiota, “the average value of stolen packages is $140”.

The problem posed by front porch piracy has become so prevalent that on-line retailers like Amazon, have resorted to unusual methods such as Amazon Key which essentially provides delivery personnel access to peoples’ homes.

BoxPal LLC provides an alternative solution. Through the use of the free app, e-commerce shoppers to connect with their neighbors to arrange any of the following:

Picking up and safeguarding delivered packages: The act performed by a Trusted Neighbor in response to a request from a Package Recipient which specifically entails picking up a delivered package at Package Recipient’s address, as well as keeping these safe and secure.

Re-delivering packages: The act performed by a Trusted Neighbor of delivering a previously picked up package to a Package Recipient’s registered address.

Receiving packages: This feature is not yet available.
