Inside the growth plan of delivery startup Passel

Inside the growth plan of delivery startup Passel

Marshall Hughes, co-founder and CEO of delivery start-up Passel, joins me. We cover:

  • The technology and reasoning behind Passel

  • Accessing excess capacity compared to professional or “gig economy” couriers

  • What cocooning is and what it means for a startup – and how it’s different to pivoting

  • E-commerce returns and exchanges

  • The experience for passers (Passel’s delivery people) and why it’s important – and how it differs from the gig economy delivery experience

  • Passel’s partnership with Swinburne University about smart cities

  • Demand for same-day and next-day delivery

    • Which sectors?

    • What kind of customers?
