HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As On the Move Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: OMVS) continues to develop its on-demand freight platform for local customized freight carriers, the popularity of the “sharing economy” business model upon which the platform is based is exploding. San Francisco’s Uber, the similar on-demand transportation network available through a mobile app, is now more popular among frequent business travelers than taxis.
Uber is so popular that it added 160,000 active drivers to its service in 2014, raising nearly $2.8 billion to expand its services abroad and offer special discounts to entice new users to give it a try. With interest in the service soaring, the popularity of a “sharing economy” in America is the perfect breeding ground for OMVS’ upcoming platform.
“We feel the culture is ready for an on-demand freight platform,” said OMVS CEO Robert Wilson. “We anticipate great interest in what On the Move Systems has to offer for those looking for a new and better way to match freight with carriers. The trucking industry could benefit from providing a personalized experience, and we’re working to take hold of that demand.”
The nation’s trucking industry is poised for a 21st Century makeover – declining diesel prices and a shortage of drivers has caused trucking companies to ramp up efforts to recruit new business. Analysts predict that if new trucking recruiting practices do not work, the preferred transportation mode will continue to shift toward customized, on-demand services.
The rising interest in sharing economy services lays the groundwork for building partnerships for OMVS’ innovative on-demand freight platform, currently in development. The Company is evaluating several software design firms to roll out the network.
