Changing delivery for good

Changing delivery for good

Postmates is transforming the way goods move around cities by enabling anyone to have anything delivered on-demand. Our revolutionary Urban Logistics platform connects customers with local couriers who can deliver anything from any store or restaurant in minutes. We pioneered the on-demand space with a fleet of more than 600,000 couriers and the largest network of merchants in the US. Postmates isn’t just an app, it’s a way of life and a part of pop culture. Our mission is to own the local consumer. We’re changing the landscape of commerce by making cities our warehouses, providing the delivery infrastructure, and connecting our customers to any product, anywhere, anytime.
