We tallied the total number of miles drivers registered on our site have driven shipping stuff. It turns out, you could get to the Moon and back...twice!
Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
Denver based startup company, CitizenShipper.com, is a new peer-to-peer marketplace that connects people who have shipping requirements with people who can actually do the driving. The site has been serving the US market since 2009, and recently expanded into Canada helping Americans and Canadians find driving jobs in a down economy.
Citizenshipper offers companies and individuals a better alternative to high priced, time-constrained and inflexible conventional delivery/courier services. CitizenShipper links people who want something delivered (the customer) with the people wish to do the delivering (the driver). It can be anything, a letter, a package, to something as large as a big-screen TV. Pets are also popular things that are transported on the site.
This year, CEO Richard Obousy announced a major milestone for the company. "We tallied the total number of miles drivers registered on our site have driven shipping stuff." Explains Obousy. "It turns out, you could get to the Moon and back...twice!" It's a nice metric when you think about it, and just goes to show how active the drivers are who are registered to the site.
CitizenShipper has grown quickly into a marketplace where drivers planning on making a trip somewhere anyway can leave quotes on thousands of online shipments. Payments for these completed shipments range from as low as $20 for local delivery jobs, to as much as $5,000 for heavy equipment and difficult to move items
Citizenshipper, founded in 2009 is a shipping and errand networking stage, and is changing the way we think about getting things done. Citizenshipper brings people closer together via their unique website architecture and connection service. Citizenshipper connects drivers/errand people with people who need shipments/errands performed. For more information visit http://www.citizenshipper.com.
