" Combining the virtues of distributed computing and crowd-sourcing with the physical world of transportation, this company is working on a local e-commerce web platform that integrates a delivery system that allows the users themselves to provide the pick up and delivery services for the other users. Ever wanted to get something from a seller on craigslist, but neither you nor the seller could / wanted to transport it? That's something we fix among many other instances of convenient delivery options.

We seek to completely disrupt local commerce by creating an "everything is deliverable" marketplace that encompasses anyone from the individual to the corporation as buyers, sellers and local transporters / couriers."
