Delivery Cube is a new and exciting software solution for food delivery businesses. It allows them to GPS track their fleet of drivers via mobile apps, receive real time updates and has a unique feature which allows them to share delivery drivers with nearby Delivery Cube members at short notice. This means that one member can borrow a driver for a fee during a busy spell and another member can earn money from their unoccupied driver, thereby reducing their payroll costs.
In the UK, a shortage of delivery drivers coupled with new start ups offering inflated wages to secure drivers is changing the market. Thousands of takeaways including national chains are finding it difficult to keep existing drivers, hire new ones, and continue to meet customers' expectations during busy periods.
After successfully raising £150k seed capital in March via crowdfunding, a Beta test of the software is planned in June in a London location.
