About PUDO Inc.
Founded in 2015, PUDO Inc. is developing North America’s only â€œcarrier-neutralâ€ parcel pick-up/drop-off network. No other company in North America offers staffed retail locations; open for extended hours, to receive consumer deliveries by any carrier. PUDOpoints include convenience stores, gas station minimarts, and grocery stores.
Through the PUDOpointâ„¢ network, consumers can control parcel deliveries â€“ receiving online parcels wherever they want, whenever they want â€“ a fully customizable and convenient method of delivery.
When packages arrive at the chosen PUDOpoint, customers are automatically notified via text or email that their package has arrived and is ready for pick-up. eCommerce companies and other shippers utilizing PUDO can save on residential â€œlast mileâ€ delivery costs. Consumers can avoid the frustration and inconvenience of missed or stolen deliveries. The final destination of the parcel becomes the safe, staffed retail environment of a PUDOpoint.
With a growing network of PUDOpoint locations across the U.S. and Canada, PUDO is revolutionizing the North American parcel shipping model. PUDO was recently named one of the Top 20 most innovative public technology companies by the Canadian Innovation Exchange. For more information, please visit: www.pudoinc.com or www.pudopoint.com
