The system revolves around a shared delivery collection center established just outside the Motomachi area. Packages shipped to the Motomachi area using a number of different independent shipping companies are delivered first to the shared delivery center, where they are sorted and loaded onto shared delivery trucks (environmentally friendly trucks bearing the Motomachi logo) to be delivered to neighborhoods within the community. The reverse is also true. Packages shipped from the Motomachi area are first delivered by these Motomachi trucks to the shared delivery center, where they are redistributed to the relevant shipping companies to be delivered to their destinations. The system is designed to significantly reduce the number of large-capacity trucks driving in the Motomachi area and contribute effectively to environmental solutions and traffic congestion.
The environmentally friendly Motomachi delivery trucks are loaded and unloaded at a dedicated parking space (the Eco Cargo Station) along the Horikawa River. This procedure helps to ensure traffic safety for delivery trucks throughout the entire Motomachi area. Motomachi is committed to continuing efforts for community planning that is both environmentally and people friendly.
