Parcel service companies regularly follow a business strategy which aims for efficiency through large volumes of highly standardized services. However, possibilities to increase efficiency are limited and standardization bears the risk that a company is replaced by competitors. Therefore, expanding the service portfolio with customer-specific services can be a promising option. A possible place for offering such customer-centered services are logistics micro hubs in urban areas, i.e., logistic infrastructure facilities for storage, transhipment and distribution, located close to recipients of parcel deliveries. An online-survey among Austrian consumers has been carried out, allowing prioritization of consumers’ requirements. Then, the relation of the prioritized services to the capabilities of urban logistics micro-hubs is determined by logical conclusion. The results should be useful to determine new services for further evaluation and development.
