What is Roadie?

Roadie is the first “on-the-way” delivery service. We put extra space in passenger vehicles to work by connecting people with items to send with drivers heading in the right direction. Our collaborative model enables fast, flexible, low-cost delivery for senders and rewards drivers for trips they were already taking.

Roadie works with top retailers, airlines, and grocers to enable a faster, more efficient, and more scalable solution for same-day and last-mile deliveries nationwide. Since our launch in 2015, we’ve delivered everything from cupcakes to couches to more than 9,000 cities — a larger footprint than Amazon Prime.

Say hello to Roadie. Let’s get back to being neighbors.

We’re alchemists.

Roadie Careers & Culture

Behind the scenes at Roadie

  • Our Founder | Marc J. Gorlin

    Marc is a serial entrepreneur who founded Roadie in 2014, when he needed a few boxes of tile from a warehouse a few hours away, and realized he had no economical or practical way of getting them the same day.

    More About Marc

    Before starting Roadie, Marc co-founded and was Chairman of Kabbage Inc., which provides working capital to small and medium-sized businesses. To date, Kabbage has raised more than $250 million in venture funding and has a $270 million credit facility from Guggenheim Securities. The company has provided over $3.5 billion in capital to small businesses.

    In 1996, Marc was a co-founder and an original board member of Pretty Good Privacy (“PGP”), a company formed to commercialize one of the most prevalent security standards used on the Internet, popularized in the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Marc assisted with the initial formation of PGP and oversaw the financing, growth and eventual sale of the company (to Network Associates (Nasdaq: INTC), a public company worth over $1 billion) in December of 1997.

    After PGP, Marc co-founded VerticalOne Corporation, a content personalization service that was sold to S1 Corporation (Nasdaq: ACIW) for $166 million. Marc was Executive Vice President of VerticalOne and worked in multiple areas of the company including financing, business development, sales, M&A and security issues.

    Marc is an active speaker on serial entrepreneurship, innovation and venture funding. Marc has spoken at SXSW, RILA Supply Chain, The Montgomery Summit, Internet Summit, Southeastern Venture Conference, and Finovate among others. He is a graduate of the University of Georgia and remains an avid bulldog fan.

Discover Collaborative Delivery

There’s an invisible transportation grid under all our feet, made up of the patterns and places we drive each day, commuting to work or school, running errands, or taking road trips. At Roadie, we’re tapping into that excess capacity and transforming it into a public utility — one with the power to move things faster, more efficiently and more sustainably than ever before.

  • 250 million vehicles

    Today, 250 million passenger vehicles will hit the road with more than four billion cubic feet of unused cargo space.

  • 4 billion cubic feet of space

    What could happen if we put just a fraction of that wasted capacity to good use?
