Fetch Solves Package Problems for Student Housing

AUSTIN, TexasJan. 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Fetch, the first and only offsite package management solution for apartment communities, today announced an initiative to solve the unique package management issues facing student housing operators.

Multifamily operators with both market rate and student housing communities in their portfolios estimate their student housing properties receive between 30% and 50% more packages. The increased volume due to climbing ecommerce rates creates significant issues with package storage and clutter, and package management responsibilities consume an inordinate amount of time for onsite teams. At student housing communities, the issues are exacerbated during move-in periods and semester starts.

Fetch press updates announces new updates to driver software to improve efficiency
Fetch, the first and only offsite package management solution for apartment communities, today announced a significant update to its driver software platform as the company works toward a fully accessible, transparent business model. Fetch is also investing more into the Preferred Driver Program to recognize and reward its highest performing delivery partners.
The seasonal package surge isn't limited to pre-holiday shopping. In the past two years, Fetch communities have continued to see a higher-than-average number of packages in the first quarter as residents take advantage of their gift cards and returns/exchanges. While multifamily properties likely don't have enough time or space to install physical package solutions to accommodate the seasonal delivery increase, they do have time to implement Fetch. Fetch receives and stores residents' packages offsite and coordinates with residents to schedule direct-to-door delivery, even on the same day.
