Roadie is an on-the-way delivery network that utilizes excess capacity in passenger vehicles, connecting people with stuff to send with drivers already heading in that direction. We ship local and long haul, same day, next day and even on weekends. Simply put, Roadie is a faster, cheaper, friendlier way to get your stuff where it’s going. The Roadie app enables efficient, low-cost delivery for senders, pays drivers for trips they were already taking, and offers members of the community a variety of other benefits including free roadside assistance, roadside discounts, and tax write-offs on miles they were already driving. Download our iOS or Android app today and say hello to the world’s first neighbor-to-neighbor shipping network.
