CitizenShipper, http://www.citizenshipper.com, is a unique marketplace, which connects people who need things shipped, with "Citizen Couriers," a huge network of name and address verified individuals who have the time and the equipment to help with the customers shipping needs. CitizenShipper embraces the spirit of micro-entrepreneurship allowing members to grow their own online business. Currently the site has an estimated $1M of live delivery jobs and is helping Americans find driving jobs in a down economy.
This month, the company announced that it had crossed the 38,000 member threshold. "It's a great number for us as its consistent with our triple digit annual membership growth." Explains CEO Richard Obousy. While a large number of the drivers on the site are truly "citizen" shippers, a good number of them are professional truckers and bonded transportation companies seeking new revenue streams. Obousy saysIt's a great place to come and find driving jobs." Continues Obousy. "Because there's such a wide variety of loads, there's a shipment for almost all types of member, be them casual or professional. CitizenShipper.com is a great way to find driving jobs."
"A crucial feature of CitizenShipper is the fact that it empowers anyone to utilize their own innate talents and make good use of their skills, in what is becoming a rapidly expanding new world of user driven commerce and the Citizenshipper model exemplifies that concept, helping members find driving jobs. "Payments for completed shipments range from as low as $20 for local package delivery jobs, to as much as $5,000 for heavy equipment and difficult to move items." says Obousy, "so there's a great range of available loads."
One final positive element to Citizenshipper is the "green" angle. "If you are plan to drive somewhere anyway, and you then make a delivery for someone, you take the need for a journey made specially for that item." Explains Obousy. "This reduces our total carbon emissions so is positive for the environment too."
