Last-mile technology company AxleHire reports that home delivery volumes have doubled as businesses turn to same- or next-day delivery.
AxleHire provides last-mile deliveries and logistics for companies including HelloFresh, Ikea and Pet Food Express on the US West Coast and New York, with other markets to follow.
The growing demand comes from the coronavirus outbreak, with consumers requiring home deliveries.
Daniel Sokolovsky, founder of AxleHire, said, “Retailers and e-commerce companies are looking for trusted last-mile partners to meet this dramatically increased demand. The team at AxleHire has maintained our industry-leading on-time delivery rates consistently in excess of 99% with 24/7 live customer support even as we dramatically increase the volume of goods we deliver.”
He added, “Companies are faced with unprecedented challenges at this moment that are forcing them to retool their businesses. They are finding they have to get their products to consumers, rather than have consumers come to them. AxleHire provides a proven, in-place solution ready to meet this need.”
