HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the Move Systems (OMVS) has begun actively searching for potential locations to launch its proposed online, on-demand courier service – the next step in the company’s ongoing efforts to revolutionize the logistics industry via the increasingly popular shared economy business model.
OMVS recently signed a milestone letter of intent for design of its innovative “Uber for Trucking” platform. Now the company has set its sights on the express courier business (representing an $86 billion industry, according to industry watchers) – a market that offers a range of revenue possibilities for firms wanting to ride the shared economy wave sweeping America.
“The shared economy model has greatly altered the way companies and individuals do business today,” said OMVS CEO Robert Wilson. “It’s also become increasingly mainstream and accepted. Companies and consumers are no longer hesitant to work with shared economy firms. Instead, they now seek them out as they understand the shared economy business model is more efficient and cost-effective than traditional models.”
OMVS is concentrating its search for initial markets in East and West Coast urban centers, and in Texas, as major cities have been the most eager to embrace shared economy services, such as Uber, Lyft and Airbnb. Urban areas also offer larger pools to draw potential courier drivers seeking income in a flexible workforce arrangement.
Surveys by noted analysts PriceWaterhouseCoopers indicate nearly half of all Americans are aware of shared economy services and an astounding 72 percent see themselves patronizing such a business sometime in the next two years.
Analysts estimate the total market for shared economy services at $450 billion.
