Harness the power of ship-from-store in your omnichannel retail strategy

Shorten delivery times, reduce shipping costs, and improve your omnichannel retail strategy. Roadie taps into excess capacity in passenger vehicles to solve ship-from-store with a flexible, scalable delivery solution with a nationwide footprint. Customers want choice and convenience. And there’s nothing more convenient than having an item delivered to your doorstep that same day. As retailers launch ship-from-store and bring products closer to their customers, the more likely they are to drive down e-commerce shipping costs and shorten delivery windows.

When considering an e-commerce shipping strategy, retailers can utilize a Buy Online, Deliver From Store (“BODFS”) model to support their multi-channel and multi-location retail operations. A ship-from-store model allows retailers to:

  • Reduce the overall cost of last-mile logistics
  • Shorten delivery windows for any product, including oversized items
  • Increase customer satisfaction scores by offering flexible and convenient same-day delivery
  • Remove store distance as a purchase barriers
