Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 30, 2012
Start-up company, Citizenshipper.com is one unique addition to the burgeoning internet world of peer to peer services, a world which connects people who can offer a service directly with people who need that very service. Load boards, transport parlance for a place where drivers can pick up shipments have been around for a long time. But what's unique about CitizenShipper is that it allows anyone with transportation to hack into that marketplace and use their vehicle to transport items for money, with items including pet shipping and vehicle transport, to name a few. This week, CitizenShipper CEO Richard Obousy released news that the company has crossed the 36,000 member mark.
"We see a huge array of shipments listed on the site." Says Obousy. "On a typical day we'll see a lot of pet shipping and vehicle listings are popular too." Explains Obousy, "But it's not rare for us to find more exotic and exciting listings - for example, a bear needed shipping just last week!"
A critical aspect of CitizenShipper is it's inherent capacity to empower anyone and everyone to take control of their own destiny and make use of their skills, talents or assets in what is becoming a rapidly booming new universe of user driven commerce and the Citizenshipper peer to peer load board model exemplifies that concept.
"By making our load board available to everyone with a drivers license and a vehicle we open up vast new possibilities for the shipping marketplace" continues Obousy. "We're adding tens of thousands of dollars into the economy right now every week by virtue of the business that's being generated on our site. We hope to break a million dollars a month some time next year."
While the US served as the nucleus of CitizenShipper it's just the beginning. "We recently expanded into Canada, and we're strategically evaluating the global opportunities so as to continue to grow the brand and the concept" Explains Obousy. "We're thrilled to have passed the 36k members mark, but want to keep growing and expanding so this is the first of many milestones."
