S. Dogan Sekercioglu, the designer of the Posten Pod Mail Delivery Vehicle, comments that two of the more common methods of post distribution rely on mopeds or vans. There are obvious disadvantages to both of these modes of transport, falling short of the solution offered by this intelligent concept.
Research for this project was conducted in Umea and based on the needs of the Swedish postal service specifically, but is relevant internationally. What is proposed is a cart that provides a happy medium between trucks and motorcycles that's fit for sidewalk travel and easy dismounting while incorporating sufficient storage for a whole neighborhood's letters and packages. The Posten Pod Mail Delivery Vehicle has a perched seat and joystick steering for the comfort of the postman with its great compartment in the front that's easy to access.
