30% of the exchanges do not take place on leboncoin because of the transport costs
Despite the explosion of ecommerce and trading platforms, shipping a package is always a challenge in France. Especially if it is bulky. Who has already sent a bike or a commode by post? Often the cost of transportation is higher than the value of the good itself. To send a bike from Paris to Marseille costs more than 300 € … Thus 30% of the exchanges do not take place on exchange sites between particular like leboncoin.
This problem is also shared by companies. For many e-merchants it is almost 50% of the payments that do not take place because of these transport issues.
Parcel carpooling: a solution to reduce transport costs
Launched in 2015 at the Web Summit, Bring4You has seized this niche and offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to this problem.
How does Bring4You solve this transport cost problem? With a new concept: the carpooling of parcels or car-parcels. The operation is simple . The sender places his ad on Bring4You, an intelligent algorithm suggests a commission for delivery: 70 € in the case of cycling is 4 times cheaper than a conventional solution. The sender then receives various proposals from travelers making the journey and chooses the best offer. The traveler receives the commission once delivery has been made.
The two parties find an advantage: some save on their shipment, the others pay part of their journey while rendering service.
A practice in full explosion
The concept has grown considerably in France. With more than 50,000 active members and thousands of packages delivered, Bring4You has established itself as the leader in France. The startup has been able to respond to the fears of users by creating a community of confidence and ensuring packages up to € 2000 against breakage and theft.
Bring4You takes a new step by integrating Station F and extending its services to businesses. The startup also announced the opening of an office in San Francisco, Silicon Valley to accelerate growth. The startup will represent France at CES in Las Vegas next January.
Bring4You is ready to revolutionize the delivery market.
