Parcel Tailors Package Deliveries to Shoppers' Schedules

Instead of working to the advantage of a delivery company’s schedules, Parcel is a service that slants package deliveries in favor of the person who ordered them. Chances are, if you’re an online shopper, you’ve probably encountered problems like missing package deliveries due to being out of the house or having one of your packages stolen because it was carelessly dropped off unsecured outside your door.

Parcel completely removes all of these complications with its simple three step process. Instead of checking out with your personal address, users can set up a unique Parcel address and check out using this address when shopping online. When Parcel receives the package, it will send the shopper a text message, asking for a one-hour delivery window and then it is brought to the consumer within the window of time that they specified. Deliveries are typically made after work hours between seven - 11 pm.

Currently, Parcel only makes deliveries to Manhattan, but there is a wait list on its site that users can sign up for to be notified of when Parcel expands where it delivers to.
