Traditional delivery service Rush has launched its on-demand last mile delivery and logistics platform to meet the growing demand for on-demand delivery as well as enable small businesses and individuals manage their own deliveries and picks with ease.
With this launch, Rush aims to bridge the gap between online to offline commerce, a market that is seeing a plethora of e-commerce start-ups sprout in different locations.
According to Head of Operations, Musa Wasike said, “The firm is looking forward to creating opportunities to engage with local customers through all channels, empower communities to shop local with no waiting and transform the way goods move around cities by enabling anyone to have anything delivered on-demand.”
The platform is also expected to help small e-commerce businesses to reach out to their consumers in a quick, efficient and convenient way through driver-partners for either on-demand or scheduled package delivery. Techmoran will get into the details of how the platform works and Rush’s business model later.
We will also look at the competition and how Rush has an advantage over them but right now the start-up is working with owners of bicycle, motorbike, van, pick-up and trucks that will be working full time across the city to guarantee quick, convenient and efficient deliveries for its users.
