GoSHIFT to help Go People take parcels to places

The crowd-sourced delivery company Go People has added a new service to its portfolio called GoSHIFT. The service will enable businesses to hire shift-based dedicated drivers as and when needed, to help streamline their delivery processes while keeping costs down. The dedicated shift service is aimed at supporting small retailers ahead of Amazon’s arrival, the company says.

Go People says the company has further advanced its grouping and routing algorithm to develop the service, allowing assigned couriers to make 10-20 deliveries affordably within a 3-hour shift. Wayne Wang, founder and CEO of Go People, said he was confident the new service will deliver Australian retailers more value and help them thrive in an ever-competitive market.

“GoSHIFT is a natural extension of our core service to simplify deliveries. It is ideal for businesses looking to compete with large-scale retailers who dominate the market, such as Amazon, while minimising the costs associated with managing their own delivery services,” said Wang.

With the impending launch of Amazon in Australia, unreliable or inefficient delivery services can mean the end for small businesses.

Brisbane City Blooms, a QLD florist business that has been piloting the service, found the regular dedicated couriers from GoSHIFT allowed the business to consolidate its morning deliveries while slashing monthly associated costs. Nel Gowdy, florist at Brisbane City Blooms, believes the adaptable service helps them stay competitive.

“GoSHIFT has given us the flexibility to scale with the day’s demand, so we can adjust our delivery needs as necessary. It means one less thing to worry about, and we’re saving thousands on our costs each month,” said Ms Gowdy.

Go People says the GoSHIFT service starts at $28/hour, with rates as low as $5 per delivery.
