Kanga Set to Mobilize Local Delivery Market; Atlanta First Stop of National Rollout

Start-up Embraces Collaborative Economy with On-Demand Shipping Solution (March 26, 2014)

ATLANTA, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Crowdsourced delivery start-up Kanga launches today amidst the growing collaborative economy, a movement set to disrupt business practices and empower individuals to transact directly with each other rather than through traditional channels. As Kanga's app for iPhone and Android debuts, the Atlanta-based company triggers the reinvention of local, same-day delivery services by placing on-demand shipping in the hands of the people.

Leveraging the growing trend of crowdsourced laborpopularized by services such as Uber and LyftKanga connects customers and retailers with local delivery needs to drivers who have delivery capabilities. To initiate the delivery process, customers upload a description of the item via the Kanga mobile app, select a delivery timeframe and set a price for the service. Simultaneously, Kanga drivers access an app-based mobile map that displays the delivery requests by location and bid for delivery jobs in their area. For retailers, the process is even more streamlined, as Kanga integrates directly with popular e-commerce and point-of-sale systems.

"We believe a community connected by technology can do great things," says Everett Steele, Kanga president and co-founder. "Kanga enables our users to save money and empowers our drivers to be entrepreneurs. Each Kanga user joins the millions of Americans who benefit from the collaborative economy."
