Today is a great day to be a Roadie. With the closing of our acquisition by UPS, we’re now an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary of one of the largest logistics and shipping companies in the world!
The deal brings UPS flexible, scalable same-day delivery technology and an Atlanta-based innovation team with expertise in crowdsourcing and on-demand models. It brings Roadie resources to continue growing and innovating our platform, with the help of a $80 billion logistics company whose name is synonymous with operational excellence.
Together, we’re poised to bring to market an exciting array of differentiated last-mile delivery offerings, including 2-hour critical, big and bulky and cold-chain compliance. And we’re bringing that to a diverse customer base that already sends more than 21 million packages every day, in countries all over the world.
UPS has been the definitive pioneer in logistics for more than a century. In a company with a long history of firsts, this partnership takes that pioneering spirit to a new level, as UPS becomes the first parcel carrier with a crowdsourced and on-demand delivery network. Together, we can continue UPS’ legacy of innovation for many years to come.
The first mile of an exciting new journey begins today. We couldn’t be more excited for you to be part of it.
