Multi-state tour brings Point Pickup’s value to the public, setting its same-day delivery platform apart from the industry

We see ourselves as the 'fair trade' of delivery systems

Point Pickup Technologies, a company offering a single platform that solves same-day delivery challenges for enterprises across various industries, concluded its summer “We Care About Our Drivers” RV tour with stops in 18 cities, successfully solidifying Point Pickup’s role in the competitive same-day delivery market for top retailers such as Walmart throughout the United States.

In addition to making consumers aware of same-day delivery options, Point Pickup’s tour reinforced Point Pickup’s driver model, which puts predictability and reliability back into the same-day delivery market. Whereas the typical “gig economy” delivery vendor subjects enterprises to the pitfalls of a random driver selection process, Point Pickup uses its Precision Platform to select the appropriate driver matching the exact criteria for every delivery. This requires fewer drivers and enables enterprises to provide better overall delivery performance to its customers. It also allows drivers to establish relationships with the companies and their customers they are servicing.

“We see ourselves as the ‘fair trade’ of delivery systems,” said Tom Fiorita, CEO of Point Pickup. “Our underlying precision technology platform is a key enabler, but when it comes down to it, it’s the driver community that has made us successful, and we do that by providing our drivers with an unparalleled level of predictability and repeat business, and the ability to make more money on a reliable basis than they can with any other driver network.”

The in-person, face-to-face interaction the Point Pickup team had during its RV tour reflects the Point Pickup philosophy, which combines the best of automation with a highly personalized and hands-on business model. It’s the predictable and reliable delivery work that has attracted many drivers to Point Pickup. According to long-time Point Pickup driver Jason Meeks, “What I like most about Point Pickup is the pay, the ease of the job, the simplicity of it, and the ease of the app. I like the pay structure, and you can look at the app and see which orders got approved for payment, and then you can expect that payment within a couple of days.”

“It was truly amazing to see our team in so many destinations on this tour,” said Fiorita. “This personal contact with our drivers gives us an opportunity to see where our platform works best and how we can improve it. We were very happy with the success of this RV tour, and look forward to continuing our dialog with our driver community.”

Point Pickup’s precision platform has cultivated a new type of efficient driver network, called MicroNETworks(tm), a selected group of repeat drivers that precisely matches the demand of enterprises. It’s these networks that can be more easily scaled across any type of geographical market, whether major or secondary. Point Pickup’s platform currently serves 44 states in more than 100 markets.
