5 Useful Apps To Kick Off Your Delivery Driver Business
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Crowdsourced transportation and delivery is changing the way we interact with people and think about jobs in the United States. If you are considering taking up a side gig as a delivery driver to make some extra cash, consider these apps to help you along your journey.

You will not have to deal with transporting annoying drunk people as you would as an Uber or Lyft driver, and the pay can be better if you are familiar with your local area. Check out these apps for more tips on starting your career as a delivery driver in Detroit.

 

1. Roadie

If you have a decent-sized vehicle that is capable of hauling packages from place to place, Roadie is hands down the best delivery driver app Detroit. Drivers have the security of knowing that they are not going to be picking up any strange person and you will know the pick-up and drop-off locations before you even accept the job.

Unlike some of the other moving-centric apps that require you to have a pick-up truck to make deliveries, Roadie does not limit its drivers. Even if you have an old hatchback as long as the package fits in your vehicle, you can make deliveries.

Roadie also offers a discount program to its drivers, where you can enjoy roadside assistance and free Waffle House trips.

2. Postmates

Postmates is another delivery driver app that works similar to Roadie, but it is available in a few more locations across the United States. It is free to sign up and join the delivery fleet, but you will need to verify your identity and wait to receive your free delivery bag and prepaid card in the mail.

Once you receive the card in the mail, you can link it to the Postmates Fleet app and then start accepting deliveries in your local area.

3. DoorDash

DoorDash is a delivery driver service that focuses exclusively on delivering food in several cities across the United States. Drivers must be at least 18 years or older and cannot have had any major driving violations on their record in the last seven years.

The company conducts background checks on all of its potential drivers, and it is constantly expanding its presence in the United States. California and Seattle have the most supported urban areas, but other large cities like New York, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, and Boston also have support.

4. Udely

Udely is a new delivery startup that aims to connect delivery drivers with those that need deliveries without having a subscription service like Postmates. It also focuses on a wider variety of delivery items instead of just food or furniture, unlike some other apps on the market. It also allows real-time tracking of packages, so you know exactly how far you are in transit.

5. UberEats

UberEats is the delivery service that kicked off the crowdsourced delivery service industry, and it is famous for a reason. It works in all the same cities that Uber has a presence in, and you can choose to be an UberEats driver for food deliveries if you prefer not to pick-up people.

Darren Cox, Founder of Nissan’s famed GT Academy, now behind the wheel as CEO

Millennial Esports Corp. (“Millennial” or the “Company,” TSX VENTURE: GAME, OTCQB: MLLLF), has appointed Darren Cox as company CEO and President, effective immediately. The founder of Nissan and Sony’s GT Academy, Cox previously served as Nissan’s Head of Global Motorsport. Also the man behind World’s Fastest Gamer, Cox has spent more than two decades immersed in the automotive, motorsport, and gaming industries, earning the moniker “The Godfather of Esports Racing.”

“Darren has proven throughout his career and during his time with Millennial that he is an innovative thinker with an innate ability to get things done,” said Board member Peter Liabotis. “In appointing Darren as CEO, we have not only secured the best man for the job, we have also reaffirmed our commitment to esports racing and marketing data for the growing esports industry.”

Cox made his mark in the motorsport industry as Global Motorsport Director for Nissan and head of Global Sales and Marketing for the Nissan Motorsport Brand. During his time with Nissan, Cox was responsible for the ground-breaking GT Academy program between 2008 and 2015, which took PlayStation gamers and turned them into international racing drivers for the Japanese manufacturer.

Previously, during his 18-year tenure at the Renault Nissan Alliance, Cox held several senior positions including Digital Marketing Director for Europe where he was responsible for, amongst other areas, customer data for marketing. It was in this role that Cox first realized the incredible value of data collection and analysis.

“I have seen the potential of Millennial Esports from day one and am excited to shape the company’s future with the talented group of people we have assembled,” said Cox in welcoming his move from Global CMO and President to CEO and President.

“That future is an unwavering focus on esports racing and data provision for the esports industry as a whole. These are still white spaces with a huge upside in terms of revenue that we can exploit through a combination of my background and our assets, such as our in-house gaming studio Eden Games and our data experts at Stream Hatchet.”

Cox replaces hospitality and technology industry veteran Steve Shoemaker, who has successfully completed his work in restructuring the company. “Steve has done a tremendous job leading the company to focus on its core esports racing and data analytics assets while reducing its overhead cost structure and moving the company towards profitability. We would like to thank Steve for his efforts in positioning the company for its next phase of growth and wish him well in his next endeavour,” said Board member Bryan Reyhani.
