I was in a small California city during the Christmas package rush. UPS had rented some storage pods in a city parking lot and having their vans deliver the packages for the city there. The packages were picked up by seasonal UPS workers with bike carts and delivered.
It was a win all around: Less driving, quicker, cheaper delivery (the temps make about one-quarter of what the unionized drivers make), less exhaust, noise and danger in the residential neighborhoods, and a few more folks getting paid to ride bikes. What's not to like?
