Welcome to our campaign for the startup and launch of our exciting and innovative courier venture.
The innovative business idea:
GoGreen Couriers is an automated courier company. Meaning we make use of state of the art technology to offer our clients an automated experience at affordable rates and we mean we aim to be the cheapest as well as offer a speedy service either same day or next but always within 24 hours within regions, with minimal parcel handling.
Our target markets will be:
- Online retailers of all size
- Entrepreneurs selling items online
- Any individual wanting to send small packages from one point to another in our service coverage area
We ship any small parcels which no permit is required tofoe transportation
How it will all fit together:
With a state of the art website and web app as well as a mobile app. This will be integrated into our automated route planning and tracking system as well as our accounting system. We will offer further integration of our system with our client’s e-commerce sites to fully automate the experience.
Clients with our system integrated into their will not have to do anything to book their orders with us for delivery, the system will take care of that automatically by pulling it from their site into our route planning system which will automatically allocate it to a vehicle and notify the customer about delivery details as well as give them a live tracking link. Tracking can also be done directly from our app or website. These clients will automatically have access to their accounts on our system through our client portal where they can find digital copies of all invoices and delivery notes as well as top up their account balances.
Anyone else who wishes to use our services can book directly on our app or website. No phone call needed, no email needed, just book and it will happen. Clients can top up their accounts or pay on checkout through secure payment gateways when booking a delivery. Again the process is the same except that the booking goes straight to our route planning system and gets allocated to a vehicle and customer gets notified with delivery details.
Our drivers will have their own app where their daily routes are updated by the system and they are also able to chat to customers. This same app will be used for taking digital signatures and any other proof like photos which will be submitted to the client who booked the delivery in the form of a digital POD showing the signature, picture of applicable as well as the GPS coordinates and geolocation map. This happens immediately after delivery has been done.
As you saw we mention digital and automated a lot... This is because we want to offer a 100% eco friendly service. By cutting out hard paperwork we don’t just help save our environment, we also cut down on actual operational and administration costs.
Parcels will be delivered in our eco friendly courier bags to top off the paperless service.
Go green and save trees.
Short explanation of process:
- Client starts using us by either requesting an integration of our system into theirs or creating a free account using our website or app.
- Client books their delivery or it comes to us automatically in case of integrated systems.
- Our system does its work and pushes the pickup and delivery details through to a specific vehicle and driver.
- Customer receives notification regarding delivery or collection and can chat to our driver if there are any problems and he can reroute to fit in with customer request within reason. They can also track the process live.
- Driver collects parcel in either the client’s packaging or with our GoGreen courier bags.
- Driver delivers parcel and collects digital proof of delivery.
- System sends this digital proof to client
Everyone is satisfied including Mother Nature
Where will the funds go?
Most of the funds raised will go to the development of our website and app. We want to spend a lot on this to make sure we have a foolproof system and to make sure we realize our goal of being 100% eco friendly
We will use funds for marketing, staff uniforms, hygiene products and protective gear for our workers.
Then just as importantly, we are not just asking, we also want to give in return and therefore we have our competition which will benefit a sponsor and their charity of choice as well as straight donations to charities for high donations received.
At the end of our campaign we will have a grand prize draw. The winner will receive 5% of the total amount of funds we raised online for themselves as well as 5% to a charity of their choice. Each $50 donations gets you one entry.
When do we need to launch?
