PeerShip is Like the Uber of Local Shipping and Receiving

The sharing economy takeover has people splitting resources like appliances, accommodations, meals, transportation and and now with PeerShip, local shipping.

The service has been described as the Uber of delivery, since it operates along more or less the same premise. Whether you want to have someone pick up groceries for you at the store, send a care package to a friend nearby or retrieve an item left behind at another location, PeerShip has its users offer what they think is a fair price to compensate a driver. If accepted, these pick up and delivery requests help people to earn cash, while also helping out another local.

With its built-in notification system and GPS, PeerShip will notify a user if they are beside a pharmacy and someone has just put in a request for medicine. This collaborative service means that arranging a delivery is more convenient for all parties involved.
