Cape Town - A new reliable and simple service has launched that aims to remove the hassle and admin involved with traditional courier services, and is recruiting drivers to help deliver the service.
Hosted exclusively on the WeChat platform, picup (WeChat ID: PicupSA) is an on-demand goods collection and delivery service, and is the perfect courier alternative for SMEs and individuals in need of a quick, easy and affordable solution. And it's not just users and businesses that benefit - picup is also creating jobs.
Picup has already recruited more than 150 part-time and full-time drivers, and as the service grows, it will continue to recruit drivers, who may be students, stay-at-home parents, pensioners, small fleet owners, entrepreneurs or anyone who has a few hours to spare - even if they only own a bicycle. The drivers can also decide their own working hours - the benefits are far-reaching and all-inclusive.
"Technology is changing our lives. Customers value their time; they're demanding immediacy, efficiency and simplicity, and this is exactly what picup aims to achieve by letting customers book a licensed, verified and fully trained professional driver directly from WeChat," says Chief picup Officer, Grant Isaacs.
"We believe in embracing life's challenges, and picup is not only tackling the challenge of reliable, professional delivery services, but also South Africa's employment challenge. Picupworks within the communities it operates to provide employment opportunities and support," says Isaacs.
