Online shopping has simplified our lives in many meaningful ways,
But why does parcel shipping and returns have to be so complicated?
Because it is.
But we aren’t. Our logistics and parcel traffic genius makes that last part easy.
Pick Up + Drop Off + return
A virtual consolidation of all couriers, carriers and retailers
Imagine a vast and open network of parcel pick-up and drop-off counters that stretches across North America from coast to coast and beyond. A network that welcomes parcels coming in, going out, and returning. A network connected by community, opportunity, and respect for people and the planet. Imagine mobile parcel management convenience without borders.
Would you like a coffee with that?
PUDOpoint Counters are operated by small businesses in your communities. They welcome all registered couriers, agents and postal services, and invite residential and business members inside to pick-up, drop-off, or return online and other purchases. Building opportunity and trust with local communities is fundamental to a healthy economy.
We’re home when you aren’t
Tens of millions of un-attended parcels worth +$6 billion get stolen every year in North America. From doorsteps, yards, apartment hallways and lobbies. This is no accident, it is organized crime.
