FastVan courier app launches
FastVan is a one-stop, on-demand courier app that allows users to post details for whatever service they require – courier, removal or delivery – on the FastVan platform, by uploading an image and details of the item that needs to be moved. A network of leading couriers are then able to volunteer to accept the trips, while customers can choose to accept the quote or request another quote from a different courier. Once on the road, customers are able to see the location of their truck in real-time on an in-app map, with automatic notifications sent when the driver reaches the location. It is also possible to rate the driver on the app, and receive an automatic invoice via email with a breakdown of the delivery request.
FastVan aims to revolutionize and re-invent the traditionally inefficient shipping industry by moving it entirely online and to mobile devices, bringing greater automation and transparency. The company has a global footprint and the app is available on the iPhone App Store as well as the Google Play Store for Android devices. It will launch in Jan 2016 and is anticipated to change the way people ship, move and deliver their items locally and internationally.
