The Department of Transportation (DOT) is expanding the Off-Hour Deliveries program which encourages businesses in congested areas of downtown Brooklyn, lower and Midtown Manhattan, and Jamaica, Queens to accept deliveries between 7 PM and 6 AM.
The program is intended to reduce traffic congestion in areas with high pedestrian volumes and limited curb space.
Carriers and receivers also benefit from:
- Reduced transit time
- Reduced fuel and delivery costs
- Less parking challenges
- More predictable delivery windows
