Delta goes door-to-door with Roadie

[ October 29, 2019   //   ]

Delta Cargo has partnered with Atlanta-based same-day delivery service, Roadie, to launch what it says is the first door to door service for a U.S. passenger airline. DASH Door-to-Door offers 24/7 pick-up and delivery, from businesses or homes, to over 55 cities in the US and with plans for expansion to dozens more cities before the end of the year.

However, there are no plans to extend the service beyond the US for the time being.

With more than 150,000 verified drivers nationwide, Roadie claims the largest local same-day delivery footprint in the nation and reaches 89% of all U.S. households but plans to expand its same-day footprint coast-to-coast.

It is aimed at time-critical shipments in industries including medical, manufacturing, automotive, industrial parts and more. Customers 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.

Maximum weight is 100lbs and maximum dimension 90 inches. TSA Known Shipper status is required to ship packages over 16oz and a streamlined registration is available directly on deltacargo.com. The service comes with a limited money back service guarantee.
