We share rooms, flats, even cars – so why not share our suitcases?
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 February 2016
Bootfellas today officially announced the launch of their online logistics matching service, referenced by the team as no less than ‘the delivery service that will change the way in which goods are sent and delivered in this world’. While the idea behind the service is simple, and can be put as bringing together goods to be sent and empty space in the travelers’ bags, Bootfellas believes this is exactly what is missing in our modern, connected and highly mobile – in all senses – world.
Bootfellas.com is an online meeting point for people looking to send their items somewhere, and travelers capable of taking spare items in their luggage or boot. The senders use the portal to advertise information about goods they need to send to prospective travelers, online. The other way round, the travelers announce their itineraries, welcoming senders interested in delivering goods to the destination they are going to to get in touch. The scheme is as simple as a postbox – and it works.
“You will often find postal charges way too high, especially if you need to send a heavier item overseas. When sending Christmas gifts to my family, I often end up paying for the postage as much as I paid for the gifts!”, says Ken Ivanov, Bootfellas’ founder and director, “On the other hand, a lot of people travel with underused luggage allowance and could easily take someone’s shipments with them, and deliver them faster and cheaper if compared to traditional postal services – and, what is no less important, greener.”
According to Mr Ivanov, Bootfellas' primary audience are active people from all over the world, who love making friends, welcome technology, and share the team's passion of making the world a better place. There also are plans on offering extended services for professional delivery businesses, which could benefit from the platform by performing fine-tuned search for prospective customers in their local areas. This is thought to be introduced later on.
