Delta Cargo has teamed up with Roadie, an Atlanta-based same-day delivery provider, to launch a 24/7 pick-up and delivery service from businesses and homes.
The new service called Dash Door-to-Door is an industry-first for a US airline. The service is now available from Atlanta to more than 55 cities in the USA. Delta and Roadie plan to expand the service to more cities before the end of 2019.
Dash pairs TSA-approved drivers with air cargo to create the fastest cross-country door-to-door service available in the USA.
“The launch of Dash Door-to-Door is a game-changer for Delta Cargo, as anyone who needs to get a small parcel somewhere urgently can now have a same-day delivery, door-to-door service in the USA, without having to travel to the airport,” said Matt Weisenburg, Delta’s director of cargo strategy and alliances.
Dash Door-to-Door was created for time-critical shipments in industries including medical, manufacturing, automotive, industrial parts and more. The service is available for packages less than 100 lb and less than 90 linear inches. It also offers end-to-end tracking and real-time status updates.
