Pudo, a customizable parcel pick-up and drop-off service, has launched across North America.
The Toronto startup allows customers to tailor parcel pick-up and drop-off locations to fit their schedules.
By partnering with local retailers including convenience stores, gas stations, and grocery stores throughout Canada and the US, Pudo has created a network of dealer locations that customers can use as alternate addresses for their “not-at-home” deliveries. With Pudo, Canadians can access deliveries later in the evening and on weekends.
“The parcel delivery industry is rapidly expanding due to the growth of online purchases. However, missed deliveries and inconvenient pick-up locations and hours are increasingly becoming a point of contention and frustration,” said Frank Coccia, Chief Executive Officer.
With 2,200 dealer locations across Canada and 3,000 locations in the United States, Pudo provides opportunities for additional foot traffic and the potential for repeat customer business.
