Newsflash March 2020 – Deliverbae Expanding
Deliverbae, a Windsor tech start-up is now expanding to outer county regions. Deliverbae — a platform started up by a group of young, driven university students (Miraj Hossain, A K M Mehedi Hassan and Matt Deleersnyder) — offers an online on-demand delivery service for any type of product. Yes, anything from food, clothes, and cosmetics, or even a shovel, during the winter months, from your local hardware store, can be delivered! This local service introduces a convenient way to shop, saving you time and money. Since 2018 Deliverbae has made its way across the Windsor area by partnering with local businesses, such as: Oven 360, Schwabs & Primo’s Finest in Meat and Sausage, BB Branded, Alpha X Nutrition, and more. The expansion to Amherstburg is a smart move as the town did not currently have an on-demand delivery service. After a launch on February 12, Deliverbae was officially the first to launch its platform there. With over 160 driver applications submitted to Deliverbae, they’re more than prepared to help service residents in the Amherstburg community. A large number of businesses in Amherstburg now have the opportunity to introduce delivery at their stores. This will ultimately drive up traffic in the economy and provide businesses with the opportunity to market their products on the Deliverbae app, website, and social media platforms. The best part about Deliverbae is the ability to allow businesses and their products to be shared on a universal app found on both the Apple store and Android Play Store.
