The rise of consumer-to-consumer delivery

Trunkshare Bay Area

June 1, 2017: today Walmart announced that it is recruiting its workers to deliver purchases from its customers on their way home. Although the idea in itself is not that exotic, what is interesting is that it validates the rise of car trunk sharing amongs consumers. By partnering with existing ride-sharing companies like Uber, Walmart is effectively diversifying its delivery arm from traditional companies like FedEx and UPS, to consumer-based delivery. Trunkshare can enable this business model through our app and will offer Walmart customers and workers an easy platform to facilitate affordable local delivery.
