We manage our own fleet of couriers, focus on meticulously fast delivery times and courier optimization. Unlike other services, we operate on a 1-to-many delivery model where one courier may be performing a route or batch of multiple orders at one time. This helps drive our cost of delivery down and improve courier efficiency.
