Welcome to Our Blog
Welcome to the Shipbird blog! We’re thrilled to introduce you to our innovative crowdsourcing delivery service. Since our launch in the Bay Area on May 1, 2014, our goal has been to provide more cost and energy efficient local shipments for local businesses and local people. Our service utilizes a network of contracted delivery personnel, also known as “birds,” traveling their normal daily routes. Thanks to Birds who make deliveries based on a common time and location, we provide a new level of local delivery efficiency.
Here’s what distinguishes us from the competition:
- 24/7 service in all nine counties within the Bay Area.
- Same day delivery and expedited delivery available year-round, even on holidays.
- The first on-your-way delivery system.
- Deliveries for up to 75% less cost than traditional delivery services.
We provide value for businesses and customers in the following ways:
- On-demand delivery option with no contracts.
- Using our website, users can set up deliveries days in advance or immediately.
Our Birds enjoy great benefits when they work with us.
- As independent contractors, Birds earn 85% of the delivery fee charged.
- After registering, Birds are notified based on which delivery jobs match their availability.
- Available delivery jobs can be viewed in real-time on our website.
- Opportunity to have a flexible schedule.
We take pride in reliability and efficiency. In our system of checks and balances, our Birds receive payment when the delivery is dropped off. With the press of a button, the Bird confirms delivery!
Additionally, we care about our community. To celebrate our launch, we donated $5,000 worth of food to Bay Area homeless shelters using our model of efficiency and convenience. For 10 days last May, we offered to pick up a box or bag from anyone who wanted to donate to an area shelter. We arranged those deliveries at no charge. We look forward to more opportunities to give back to our community in the future.
