Express packages are now a more efficient and reliable way to get goods from point A to point B than parcel delivery.
But Airnet is looking to move away from parcel delivery and offer an alternative to express delivery.
The company is launching its first “express delivery service” in Canada, offering customers a direct delivery option in their chosen city.
Airnet’s business model has a few wrinkles.
The startup plans to start with a limited number of orders and then ramp up gradually as it adds more and more customers.
Airnets will offer express delivery in some cities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the U.
“And then it’s going to be the other way around in Europe and Australia,” said Airnet CEO and co-founder and CTO Kevin Burdine in an interview.
“Then, once you’re in Australia, you’re going to have to choose whether to go to a carrier that offers Express or not.”
Burdines company is building Airnet to help people move from parcel to express shipping.
But the company isn’t giving up on the idea of delivering direct from the doorstep.
“Airnet Express is a direct shipping service, not a parcel service,” Burdin said.
“It is not a mail-by-mail service.”
The company will deliver a variety of goods from its own fleet of trucks to the public, including groceries and dairy products.
“We will be able to get to our customers from wherever they are,” Biddens said.
The Airnet company is looking for a number of different types of customers to test its service.
The key to Airnet delivering goods from home to the front door, Biddins said, is having a good service and having the right infrastructure.
AirNet has a “smart door,” where customers have their delivery tracking software running on their devices.
But Bidders company has plans to expand the service to other cities in Canada and the U., so it can deliver goods to more people.
The U.K. will be the first major city to start Airnet.
“If we can build a strong ecosystem for air delivery in the United Kingdom, then that’s going in our favour,” Bidding said.
Biddes said the company has some challenges ahead.
First, the company needs to build out the infrastructure for air deliveries.
It is still early days in Airnet, but it has been working on getting a lot of its infrastructure in place.
“There’s not a lot we can do to scale air delivery because it is an early-stage startup,” Biding said.
A second challenge is getting the right people to work on the business model.
AirNets business model is to deliver goods from the front doorstep to the customer’s home.
But that means the company doesn’t have an efficient network of distribution points.
And the logistics infrastructure in some parts of the country is not up to the task of getting people to their destinations.
AirNav will be looking to attract the right customers to work with it.
“The logistics in some areas are not up for us to deliver on that front,” Bids said.
But with AirNav’s delivery service, Airnet can offer customers the same level of service as its parcel service.
“I think what we’re trying to do is put air in a parcel that’s a little bit more convenient,” Beddins said.
Air Nats CEO and Co-Founder Andrew Biddis says the Airnet business model will be more efficient.
But it’s not easy to achieve.
He said the Airnats business model was initially designed to be a parcel delivery service and now Airnams goal is to move to direct delivery.
“And we want to get there,” Bides said.
