Bringg gets big and heavy through US partners
Last-mile delivery technology platform Bringg is expanding its US fleet for oversized and other deliveries by partnering with crowdsourced firms Bungii and Frayt.
Bringg said that both fleets offer a range of shipping options for big and bulky items. Under the partnership agreements, Bringg customers will be able to select and utilize each of the fleets across most major areas in the US for oversized, scheduled and on demand shipments.
Frayt claims to have the largest networked fleet of delivery drivers in North America, with more than 3,000 professional drivers. It currently serves Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Detroit, Toledo, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville, Nashville, Chicago, Fort Wayne and Long Island.
Bungii, based in Kansas City, is a big & bulky, last mile on-demand service offering residential and commercial delivery, simple assembly and reverse logistics.
Connecting Frayt and Bungii to the Bringg platform expands fulfillment options for Bringg customers, while simultaneously allowing them visibility into fleet performance and the ability to optimize it to their specific needs. Customers looking to move large items from their stores or warehouses, meet rush hour delivery needs, or simply augment their fleets during scheduled delivery times can now easily utilize these fleets through the Bringg platform.
The offerings further expand Bringg’s fleet network, the country’s largest, with millions of drivers across the US, EMEA and LATAM offering on-demand and scheduled deliveries. The new partnerships also bolster Bringg’s fleet network assets, which range from sedans to large box trucks and fleets that provide services including white glove installation and assembly.
“Dependable deliveries are a necessity that should be at the core of nearly every business, now and in the future,” said Bringg’s VP of Alliances, Nikolai Avrutov-Rostarchook. “By partnering with Frayt and Bungii, we’re enabling businesses to make that shift to reliable delivery of large items without needing to make hefty up front investments in their own fleets and providing the option to augment existing fleets when demand is off the charts – that’s a big win for businesses and consumers alike.”
“Partnering with Bringg was an easy decision. With so many businesses having the need to move big and bulky items, offering Bringg customers the on demand ability to move up to 3000 pounds and have access to thousands of sprinter vans without needing to own their fleet seems like a no-brainer,” commented Lawrence McCord, CEO of Frayt.
“Customer expectations for big and bulky delivery are rapidly evolving as purchasing decisions are becoming more and more influenced by the delivery experience. Traditional big and bulky delivery cannot meet the timeliness and quality that customers are starting to demand. Our team is excited to partner alongside of Bringg to provide a consistent, high quality, on-demand delivery experience to customers nationwide,” added Ben Jackson, CEO of Bungii.
