Companies are taking more and more responsibility when it comes to increasing sustainability and an important aspect in this regard is mobility: assisting and enabling employees to switch to shared modes of transport. Reducing car-dependency is not only relevant for commuting purposes but it also applies during working hours, e.g. with smart Shuttles that transport workers to meetings in different buildings.
Here at Shotl, we are very excited to announce that we are Munich Airport’s preferred partner for the launch of this new Shuttle Service as it reduces car dependency whilst improving mobility. The service will be delivered under the brand “ShuttleMe”. In its initial stages, “ShuttleMe” consists of a three-van fleet, all driven by former baggage carriers who have been re-trained to perform this new role. It is an ideal match as these employees are already familiar with the service area as well as with the company’s values and etiquette.
The project pursues two goals:
Assisting in and forming a crucial part of this project with a strategic partner as renowned as Munich Airport is a privilege for Shotl as it will allow us to better understand the needs and possibilities of work-related mobility.
Driverless transport represents an opportunity to disrupt current unsustainable models, among other benefits. However, while industry is convinced, there’s still a long road ahead in terms of public appetite and confidence.
