This neighbor-to-neighbor shipping network allows you to carpool your cargo. The sharing economy-enabled P2P network Roadie allows drivers to fill their cars with cargo belonging to their neighbors.

Based in Atlanta, the startup helps you move your things by matching your stuff up with a car with empty space going to the same place. Presently in beta mode, the shipping network platform works through a mobile app. Users can list their items to be shipped and include relevant details like when and where they need to be sent. The app offers a price and posts it to the Roadie community. Those who have signed up to be carriers with the service can then sign up after browsing gigs that fit with their plans.
