Crowd delivery company
Founding Year: 2014
Location: The Netherlands
Trunkrs is a package delivery company who fulfils the rapidly increasing need for ‘Same day delivery at affordable rates’ through a crowd sourced parcel delivery community. The uniqueness of the business proposition lies especially in the way Trunkrs exploits a network of qualified crowd sourced commuter drivers to perform the distribution from city boundaries to consumer homes.
Commuter delivery drivers
The process works as follows: As in the current situation, a professional pick-up driver collects parcels and transports them to a transfer hub. The transfer hub stores the parcels and hands them out to so-called ‘commuter delivery drivers’. These commuter delivery drivers are commuters linked to Trunkrs, earning a fee per package for delivering the package. Therefore, costs and emissions of extra delivery rides are cut, and Trunkrs doesn’t need to subcontract its delivery activities anymore.
