Online shopping has grown significantly over time. From society's point of view, it is of interest that such a development is met in a way that provides the lowest possible traffic with associated disadvantages such as noise, emissions and accidents. There is therefore a need for knowledge about what kind of traffic and emission consequences different delivery solutions have. In this report, we consider Porterbuddy's home delivery solution for online shopping in the Oslo area. Based on real data from Porterbuddy's operations, we calculate how much transport these operations generate compared to what we find in a survey that maps journeys to and from collection points for online shopping that the customers themselves visit. We find that with sufficiently high volumes, Porterbuddy's distribution solution will have a lower traffic and emission load than an average journey to and from a collection point.
