The Delivery Drivers’ Network
The initiative is called "Blablacar for parcels". The platform brings together people who need to send something to a destination with people who go there and can take a parcel and deliver it to the destination. The jadezabiore.pl platform connects drivers with people who want to send parcels not only in Poland, but also to some other European countries.
The service on one hand allows drivers to post announcements about the possibility of collecting a parcel on the way during a planned trip, and on the other hand it lets people check if someone is going to the place where they want to send their parcel. With the help of a search engine checking the offers, portal users can quickly see if someone is planning a trip to the place where they want to send a shipment, or if someone is trying to send a package where they want to go.
The service does not charge any fees for registration, posting announcements or browsing. In the case of choosing to take advantage of an offer, users set a satisfactory payment rate for both parties between themselves, and the portal collects a commission of 5 zł (around 1 EURO) for 24 hours access to detailed contact details of the carrier or sender. Those who travel a lot or who often send packages can purchase a monthly Premium subscription that gives access to all carriers and senders for 30 days.
