Grand Junction Establishes Itself as Leading Provider of National Same-Day & Scheduled Delivery
In two years, the Company’s platform has grown to handle a local delivery every second
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 3, 2015 – Grand Junction, Inc., the only comprehensive provider of national, same-day and scheduled delivery, today announced benchmark metrics to support its rapid growth. The Company out-delivers its top competitors in the market, including Deliv, Postmates, and Google Express combined, managing an average of 90,000 local deliveries a day.
Since its founding in 2013, Grand Junction’s technology platform has rapidly grown to handle a delivery every second for customers ranging from small retailers to Fortune 500 enterprises. The Company, which allows businesses of all sizes to offer delivery through a comprehensive technology platform and coast-to-coast network of 700 local delivery companies and couriers, provides customers a choice of customizing their own service, or choosing from on-demand, same-day AM/PM, scheduled and two-person delivery.
“Consumers’s expectations are constantly evolving, and it is only a matter of time before they will expect to choose from a range of same-day service levels at an affordable price,” said Rob Howard, Chief Executive Officer, Grand Junction. With our integrated network of experienced local carriers that service every market in the US and Canada, we’ve been able to do what our competitors cannot – offer the ability for retailers, 3PLs, distributors and consumer-focused startups to quickly roll out local delivery service on a national basis without compromising their customer experience.”
While Grand Junction is integrated with independent contract drivers, it works primarily with local carriers (couriers), a 150-year-old, $40 billion industry that companies such as Amazon have long trusted for their customer delivery and “last mile” logistics. Working with local carriers, as opposed to exclusively with independent contract drivers, provides its customers with higher quality, lower total cost, and the abilities to both rapidly scale and customize service levels to their business needs.
“Looking ahead, our goal is to engage with startups and ‘app’ providers that are new to same-day delivery,” continued Howard. “Local delivery can be over-complicated and confusing, but our platform provides companies with a professional, configurable service offering that will delight their customers’ and give them a competitive edge.”
