One step turned into a journey
People say great ideas come when we least expect them, and that's exactly what happen to us? we were walking the dog.
Everyday on our walks we noticed, including the dog of course, that package delivery companies were constantly driving around dropping off packages. It literally seemed like a never ending cycle that increased traffic and pollution in our neighborhood. On top of that, these packages we're getting stolen and damage at alarming rates. We thought there had to be a better way, and that got us thinking?
... you see, each week everyone in our neighborhood visits at least one local business near them, so why don't we create the technology that lets people get their packages delivered to that business. This would put an end to package theft and damage along with helping local businesses.
And on top of that, we would decrease the amount of delivery cars zigzag-ing through our neighborhoods, which in turn would reduce costs for courier companies, which would eventually lead to lower shipping costs for us. And, if lots of people used us, the environment would also win.
What started as a dog walk, ended up becoming our journey to change the last mile of package delivery.
Three's a company
Local Postal was founded in January of 2017 in Houston, Texas, by three budding entrepreneurs who shared a common desire of doing something BIG.
Coming from different parts of the world, we knew straight away that our diversity and drive were our our biggest strengths.
From the start, we knew we wanted to be more than just a company, we wanted to be a community. A community where everyone is a winner.
We hope you enjoy experiencing Local Postal.
