Company description: Deliv is a crowdsourced same-day delivery service for large national multichannel retailers. Deliv partners directly with retailers and prices same-day delivery the same, or lower, than standard delivery. In partnering directly with retailers, the Deliv “same-day delivery” button becomes a native part of the checkout experience.
Deliv drivers are made up of highly educated, experienced customer service and sales personnel. They are rated by customers and by Deliv’s operations team so the platform is able to prioritize the allocation of jobs to those with the highest ratings.
Business model: By partnering directly with retailers, Deliv allows the retailer to retain their direct relationship with the customer. Deliv believes in giving the customer, and retailer, the ultimate experience with easier purchase, superior delivery personnel and low prices. The Deliv “same-day delivery” button is integrated into the retailer’s checkout screen. The Deliv platform incorporates smart routing and full transparency including the ability for shoppers to watch their delivery on a map real time from pick up to their doorstep.
Competitive advantage: Deliv differs from other same-day delivery services by partnering directly with retailers and pricing same-day delivery the same, or lower, than standard delivery. This makes the traditionally premium service significantly more attractive to both consumers and retailers, driving significant volume and scale.
