This year, shoppers smashed previous records for Black Friday and Cyber Monday spending, with over $7.9 billion spent online. As a result, multifamily properties have been bracing for the millions of package deliveries following in their wake. The dust has settled from Black Friday, and we've pulled a snapshot of package delivery statistics from thousands of Luxer One systems across the United States. These stats shed light on the aftermath of “the largest online shopping day in US history”, and paint a picture of the unique package management challenges apartment communities face every December.
In 2005 when Arik Levy founded our sister company, Laundry Locker, he had just one employee: himself. Thirteen years and over one hundred team members later, Arik has founded three successful companies, including Luxer One.
On this episode of the Business Building Rockstars Show, Nicole Holland interviews Arik on his entrepreneurial journey and the vision, sacrifices, and determination it took to build Luxer One.
On June 13-16, 2018, we joined over 9,000 attendees at the biggest multifamily event of the year: The National Apartment Association's Apartmentalize. This year's event took place in sunny San Diego, where we spent four jam-packed days attending sessions, holding one-on-one meetings, hearing incredible speakers, and meeting hundreds of fellow attendees at our two Exhibit Hall booths.
Read on for a recap of the new solutions we showcased at our booths.

Package delivery volume skyrockets during the holiday season, and parcel carriers have their work cut out for them. Companies like USPS, FedEx, UPS, and Amazon rise to the challenge by hiring seasonal drivers to keep up with the massive amount of deliveries.
Here are 4 tips to help make the delivery process as smooth as possible during this hectic, high-volume time of year.
Your residents receive more packages during the winter holidays than any other time of year. Here are 5 tips to help them pick up their deliveries faster, make sure they never miss a package, and to spread the joy and excitement of the holiday season.
Package lockers are a big investment. If you're considering getting a locker system, it's important to ask these six questions during your due diligence. You'll set your property up to make the most out of your lockers, and also avoid several potential headaches down the road. Know what to prepare for now, and you'll prime your property for years of simple, easy-to-use automated package acceptance.
If you're looking for hard data on the package problem, check out this infographic.
Automated package acceptance is a game-changer. You don’t need to babysit every delivery, you don’t need to micromanage every pickup, and your residents don’t need to worry about packages sitting, unsecure, on their doorsteps.
While 24/7 automated pickup takes a huge amount of work and worry off your plate, it does raise a concern: people are interacting with a valuable part of your property unsupervised. What happens if something goes wrong?
That’s where video surveillance comes in. Proper video security that captures the entire package acceptance area – either a full shot of your lockers or package room – is crucial to getting a complete package management solution. If something goes wrong in that final mile of package delivery, you should know that someone behind the scenes has your back.
Technology plays a crucial part in the development of new multifamily amenities. When Luxer One was founded, we made it our mission to always pursue new and creative ways to solve the package problem for our customers. This year, we’re pleased to be the first vendor in multifamily to offer The Smart Package Room®, a new addition to our suite of locker & package room offerings.
The holidays are a crazy time for package delivery. With the rush to order presents for friends and family, it's no surprise that the amount of deliveries increases.
This year, "increase" is putting it lightly.
