This Uber-esque app for delivery uses a peer-to-peer model is a cost-effective alternative to using an express courier service. Based in Belgium, startup Bringr allows people to book a courier on-demand and track their progress. Instead of paying more for tracking numbers through national post offices or private messenger services, Bringr translates an old school offering into the age of on-demand platforms.
The mobile solution connects both customers to the items they are trying to send as well as others willing to deliver them. With driving, biking and on-foot options, the app for delivery works similarly to Uber in that it notifies nearby messengers of an item waiting to be delivered locally. On the other end, users can follow their package via GPS technology.
