This service will be available first at an apartment complex of about 2,100 households located in Yeonsu District, Incheon.

Five workers who are deaf and hard of hearing delivery will be responsible for managing two buildings and delivering about 150 parcels on average per day.

“We established a stable system through a trial operation of delivering 100,000 parcels from July 2020,” said CJ Logistics.
