U.S. door-to-door shipping just got a great deal easier as Delta Cargo partnered with Roadie, an Atlanta-based same-day delivery service, to launch DASH Door-to-Door.
The 24/7 service is a combination carrier first.
Dash to your door currently serves over 55 cities in the United States, but plans are afoot to expand the service to plenty of additional destinations this year.
“The launch of DASH Door-to-Door is a game changer for Delta Cargo, as anyone who needs to get a small parcel somewhere urgently can now have a same-day delivery, door-to-door service in the U.S., without having to travel to the airport,” said Matt Weisenburg, Delta’s Director – Cargo Strategy and Alliances.
“We have been working with Roadie since 2015 on the passenger side of the business and have seen great customer satisfaction with the transparency and quality of the service.
“So, we wanted to continue this momentum and bring this innovative product offering to our cargo customers.”
With more than 150,000 verified drivers nationwide, Roadie has the largest local same-day delivery footprint in the nation and reaches 89% of all U.S. households.
