Zipments, a New York-based online service platform for same-day delivery, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding.
Backers include FirstMark Capital, the New York City Entrepreneurial Fund of the New York City Economic Development Council, and the Windquest Group of Grand Rapids, Mich.
Led by Garrick Pohl, CEO, Zipments provides businesses with online tools for getting items delivered within hours at a cost well below traditional standard 2-3 day shipping offered by large carriers. Zipments also provides an accessible, enterprise grade platform for individual couriers and courier companies, offering innovative tracking, payment processing and dispatching functions.
The service is now available throughout NYC with standard same day deliveries available in Manhattan for $9.00 and three-hour deliveries for $10.00. Businesses can also use Zipments for batched deliveries where multiple items are delivered along designated routes.
