HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The nation’s retailers are on a mission to cut delivery times to almost zero and On the Move Systems (OMVS) has a solution to help them achieve this ambitious goal with its proposed shared economy courier service.
Amazon has been experimenting with various technologies to slice its delivery times in order to better compete in an ever-crowded field. The company has even considered using drones to get its packages to waiting customers with lightning-fast speed.
One online shopping survey reported 42 percent of customers abandoned potential purchases and went to other retail sites to buy because of delivery time estimates. More than 40 percent of those surveyed said they expect options for two- to three-day delivery, and a third of respondents said they would pay a fee to ensure rapid delivery.
“Customers’ desire for ever-faster delivery has opened a potentially lucrative niche market for someone who can provide flexible, rapid courier services,” said OMVS CEO Robert Wilson. “There are tens of thousands of retailers who ship products to customers and both they and their clients might appreciate a faster, cheaper alternative to FedEx and UPS. With an online, on-demand courier service, we can fill that niche for them and build consistent shareholder value for our investors as well.”
OMVS has been conducting due diligence and market research on starting a shared economy courier service in addition to its on-demand trucking platform, now under development. The company has found strong potential for such a service and is scouting possible startup locations.
