Japanese homebuilders answering demand for delivery boxes

Package receptacles ease strain of redeliveries for logistics companies

The delivery box developed jointly by Daiwa House Industry, Japan Post and Nasta.

TOKYO -- Japanese homebuilders are installing delivery receptacles to accept packages in order to cut down the redeliveries currently plaguing the domestic logistics industry.

Daiwa House Industry is making such delivery boxes a standard accessory in houses. The company will install them at 600 single-family detached homes by March 2018. Delivery personnel can drop off packages at these units if no one is home to receive them. The resident can later retrieve the parcel by entering a code. Daiwa House will advertise the convenience the boxes can provide for dual-worker households.
