The 2,000 won surcharge for the delivery fee to the apartment, which says “The driver who went once, will not go again,” was due to the response of residents close to’GapJil’.

As expected, the delivery agency announced a 2,000 won premium for delivery of’Seoul Forest Acro Forest’, a luxury apartment in Seongsu-dong, Seoul.

As expected, in a recent notice to the franchisees, the apartment announced that when delivery drivers visited, not only did the apartment stand outside and walked into the complex, but also left the ID card.

In addition, delivery drivers are required to use only freight elevators in this apartment, not regular elevators. Because of this, the company explains that “the articles that have gone once are not going to go again”.

As expected, “drivers are more reluctant to deliver delivery than in the existing premium areas, and drivers who have gone once are not going to go back twice.” I said.

Announcement contents of the delivery agency’as you think’

A similar case occurred in 2018. In’Mecenatpolis’ in Seogyo-dong, Seoul, controversy arose as delivery drivers only used freight elevators. When food was delivered, the elevator smelled a lot, and if the dishes were placed outside the house, it was dirty.

At that time, delivery workers also demanded an apology, saying, “The delivery man is not a cargo, and the customer is not a nobleman.”

However, there are concerns that the premium started in this way could lead to an excessive increase in delivery costs.

On the 23rd, an official of the Korea Food Service Industry Association yunhap news“The delivery platform is not regulated by the E-Commerce Act, so you can adjust the fee at your own risk,” he said.

On the other hand, Koo Gyo-hyun, head of Rider Union’s planning team, told the media that “Once ordered platform companies should lower the fees they receive from self-employed people.”
