Crowdsourced delivery startup Go People raises more funding

Australia-based crowdsourced delivery startup Go People has raised more than $2m in funding over the past couple of months, according to local sources. Wayne Wang, the founder and CEO of Go People, was quoted by Logistics & Materials Handling as saying: “Although we have seen a number of new entrants come to market with a similar model or other on-demand services companies looking to expand into the deliveries industry, we’re not fazed.

“Parcel delivery can be much more complex than other on-demand services. That is because a Runner—our name for a courier—needs to be able to deliver parcels to multiple locations in the simplest and most efficient manner. That’s where our proprietary routing and grouping algorithms set us apart. We work out the best routes and the best locations for them travel, to make their life easier and, in turn, make them more money.”

Go People was previously known as People Post.
