Delta Cargo recently announced a partnership with Roadie, an Atlanta-based same-day delivery service, to launch DASH Door-to-Door. The 24/7 pick-up and delivery service, from your business or home, is now available from Atlanta to over 55 cities in the United States. The companies plan to expand the service to dozens more cities before the end of the year. DASH Door-to-Door pairs TSA-approved drivers with air cargo to create cross-country door-to-door service.
“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 U.S., without having to travel to the airport,” said Matt Weisenburg, Director of Cargo Strategy and Alliances at Delta. “We have been working with Roadie since 2015 on the passenger side of the business and have seen great customer satisfaction with the transparency and quality of the service. So, we wanted to continue this momentum and bring this innovative product offering to our cargo customers.”
DASH Door-to-Door was created for time-critical shipments in industries including medical, manufacturing, automotive, industrial parts and more. When booking DASH Door-to-Door, customers can get a dynamic price quote, with a single booking for flights with pick-up/delivery, as well as end-to-end tracking and real-time status updates to provide customers with full peace of mind throughout the parcel journey.
“Customers want what they want when they want it,” said Marc Gorlin, Founder & CEO of Roadie. “This partnership means we can deliver - whether it's across town or across the country. Roadie was first to market with an ‘on-the-way’ delivery service utilizing excess capacity in passenger vehicles already on the road. Expanding our model into the belly of a 737 is just the latest step in realizing our vision to make same-day delivery faster, more efficient and more sustainable.”
