Created in 2012 & headquartered in Dubai, Fetchr is a shipment & delivery Co. that works on revolutionising the sector targetting (for now) customers without any fix address (~billions). The start-up will so use the data shared by its customers’ smartphone GPS to locate them and provide its services, even to businesses (integration capabilities to the e-commerce or social media store websites).
On the customers for P2P services side, 4 steps to follow:
- app downloading & customer account creation
- pickup location (GPS data sharing) & time-slot population
(w/ the possibility to add comments on the sender)
- delivery location (GPS data sharing) & time-slot population
(w/ the possibility to add comments on the receiver)
- order verification, confirmation & track
a flat rate pricing is applied depending on the package weight & the payment is done through the app (Visa/Mastercard debit/credit cards).
Thanks to the $41b raised in May, Fetchr, that is already located in 6 Middle-East countries, plans to expand its business (from 1.5K to 5K employees) by the end of 2017.
