Rethinking Rideshare: Deliver Construction Supplies, NOT People or Food
Curri recontextualizes the typical way of thinking about the rideshare economy. Sure, Uber, Lyft and Doordash were good ideas. Peer-to-peer services have made it much easier for people to get a ride when they need it or get any kind of food delivered to their door. So why couldn’t that same concept be applied to other industries? If food service and taxi services could be improved by rideshare, what else is out there?
Curri answered that question by offering a comprehensive rideshare service for construction supplies delivery. Someone outside that industry might wonder how necessary that is. If you’re in the construction materials and construction supplies industry, though, you know that Curri could be a game-changing solution to a problem that many suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers face.
Now Curri allows these companies to request drivers for their construction supplies, not for people or food. It solves a huge inefficiency by making easy and fast delivery widely available. In short, Curri is changing the transportation game for the better.
Curri Is Changing the Transportation Game
How is Curri changing the transportation game? By giving the aforementioned construction industries a widely available and elastic fleet of vehicles with professional drivers behind the wheel. Curri functions essentially the same as Uber or Lyft and those other rideshare services, except it’s specially designed to accommodate the needs of the construction supplies and materials industry.
With Curri, all these companies have to do is request a delivery and specify their load. Curri will match them with a driver who can handle the delivery and get it where it needs to go. What makes Curri different from these other rideshare apps is the vast fleet of vehicles that are available to make the deliveries. With Uber, the most you can get to ferry people is a car or SUV. Curri drivers have vehicles of every form and function. You can get a pickup truck, a sedan, a box truck, a semi-truck or anything else you might need to transport construction supplies.
Curri is also available on-demand, with flexible options for routes. With a Curri account, business owners can customize delivery schedules and essentially add Curri as an arm of their delivery ops team at an affordable price.
