NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Homer Logistics, a startup specializing in optimizing local, same-day delivery using advanced logistics technology, today announced it will expand its delivery services into Manhattan's Upper East and Upper West sides. To accommodate services in the new territories, the company purchased a new warehouse space to house supplies and support couriers. The company also launched an initiative to hire 500 additional couriers by the end of 2017.
"Homer is gaining rapid momentum as businesses increasingly realize the need for a sustainable and economical solution for same day and faster delivery," said Adam Price, CEO of Homer Logistics. "Our expansion into the Upper East and West sides signifies the high demand for logistics services that connect consumers with a wide range of products and services in a short amount of time. Homer's technology is mastering the complexities of urban environments to not only make these local deliveries happen, but more efficient."
Homer Logistics provides a delivery solution for businesses through the combination of logistics technology and a fully employed fleet of delivery couriers. To support this expansion and to meet existing demand, the company anticipates it will hire an additional 500 couriers in Manhattan. Homer uses an employee-first model. The average hourly pay for a courier at Homer is $19 per hour and benefits include stock options as well as medical, dental, and vision insurance.
The company's team of data scientists, operations research scientists, and engineers creates software that better predicts and understands delivery patterns. This enables Homer Logistics to both schedule employees in accordance with delivery demand and optimize real-time, automated dispatching, ultimately bringing economic efficiency to same-day deliveries without sacrificing delivery time or quality.
Homer Logistics has raised a total of $14.5 million in funding since 2015 to support its growing business platform, and partners with local merchants, online ordering platforms, and longer haul logistics companies. The company is headquartered and manages all delivery operations in Manhattan.
