How it works

Introducing a Smart Delivery Platform and Driver Network

In order to deliver same day with precision and scale, PPUP has developed a ‘smart’ technology platform called our Precision Matching System. It is able to match specific customer delivery criteria − type of product, size/weight, special vehicle/licensing requirements, and delivery day, time and location − with the ideal (licensed) driver, vehicle type, location and route.

The Precision Matching System includes a cloud-based, three-tiered architecture with the following components:

  1. An SQL-based database to capture and manage all delivery data;
  2. Sophisticated, propietary middle-ware to analyze delivery matching criteria and optimize delivery routing; and
  3. An API for customizing delivery functionality and integrating with e-commerce systems.

Delivery Platform Interfaces: Businesses and individuals can access all the PPUP functionality, including placing and managing orders, through a Web browser or user app (for both Android and iOS devices). Businesses may also integrate existing online ordering or e-commerce systems into PPUP’s platform via an easy-to-use, fully documented API.

Business/User features include:

  • Manage deliveries via dashboard UI
  • Create point-to-point or multi-routed orders

The PPUP Delivery Network: Individual contractors or trucking companies may sign up to become a driver for the PPUP delivery network either on our website or by downloading the app. Drivers set their own criteria for available hours, location and vehicle(s), and our system will provide them with the delivery jobs that match that criteria. Drivers can also rely on the system to manage seamless delivery transactions with pre-set pricing and automated legal and payment processing.
