SAN DIEGO, March 27, 2019 – Driven Deliveries, Inc., (DRVD), the world’s first and only publicly traded cannabis delivery company, announced today the launch of its new delivery model, Driven Direct. This will allow the Company to work directly with brands and retailers to deliver a broad range of cannabis products directly to consumers.
Driven Direct will be launching with multiple retail partners in California, and will offer delivery throughout the state covering major metro centers and the majority of the population.
Driven Direct’s structure will resemble that of Amazon’s delivery model. The program is designed to let entrepreneurs run their own local delivery networks featuring the Driven Deliveries logos. Each delivery unit will begin its day at a designated Driven station in California, where packages ordered from local retailers are then picked up by Driven Deliveries, Inc. drivers and delivered direct to the consumer. Location-based algorithms will determine which packages are sent to these delivery stations.
The program is critical in addressing the retailers’ primary transportation issue: last mile delivery. “Last Mile Delivery” is a term used in supply chain management and transportation planning to describe the movement of people and goods from a transportation hub to a final destination, in this case the consumer. In 2018, the Global Last Mile Delivery market size was $30.2 billion and it is expected to reach $55.2 billion by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of 9.0% during 2019-2025.
“Management is extremely pleased to unveil our new strategic delivery model, Driven Direct,” stated Mr. Chris Boudreau, Chief Executive Officer of Driven Deliveries, Inc. “In addition to expanding our relationships with local cannabis retailers throughout the state, this program will allow us to significantly enhance our brand throughout the country’s largest legal cannabis market.”
Mr. Boudreau, continued, “Management has built a strong foundation of human capital via the recent additions of Mr. Jerrin James from Amazon and Mr. Adam Berk of Osmio (now GrubHub) Jerrin’s background in operations, large-scale processes and advanced technologies coupled with Adam’s skills in E-commerce and logistics, provide a strategic advantage that will help to make Driven Direct a success. I’m confident that as the marijuana delivery market continues to evolve, bespoke services that address last mile delivery will become increasingly vital to the process. We intend to move aggressively into this market and establish ourselves as the leader in this expanding industry.”
