Great news for our team today! We’re honored to be named a winner of the inaugural Atlanta 50 on Fire awards, which recognize our hometown’s most innovative individuals and organizations that are heating up the ecosystem. Roadie was named a ‘Blazer’ winner for the best B2C Technology and Software category.
This type of recognition is a testament to our incredibly hardworking team of innovators, as well as the amazing community of Senders and Drivers who make Roadie so special.
Every day, 250 million passenger vehicles hit the road with 4 billion cubic feet of excess capacity, driving right by us every day. At Roadie, we wonder what could happen if we put all that wasted space to good use?
Our company was founded on that question. Today, Roadie is the first on-the-way delivery service that puts unused capacity in passenger vehicles to work by connecting people with items to send with drivers already going that way. Roadie works with consumers, small businesses and Fortune 100 companies across almost every industry to provide a faster, cheaper, more scalable solution for same-day and urgent delivery. With over 120,000 drivers, our community has delivered to more than 11,000 cities and towns nationwide and covers 89% of all U.S. households. We have the largest local same-day footprint in the nation — bigger than Amazon Prime Now.
Congratulations to the entire Roadie team and the outstanding group of Atlanta entrepreneurs and startups leading the way in technology, creativity, and service in our community.
