This service wants to 'bring the world to your fingertips' by creating a new model of community shipping

Peer-to-peer marketplaces have become a revolutionary force within industry, transforming the way business is done by shifting vending power from the business owner to the individual. From bigwig startups such as Airbnb and Uber, down to recently launched newcomers like KitSplit, Overnight and so forth, there’s never been a better time to collect alternative streams of income on your own terms. And now, a new player is set to disrupt the conventional model for receiving shipments by incentivizing national and international travelers to pick up and drop off goods—effectively positioning itself as a cross-country version of the peer-to-peer delivery models native to businesses like Dolly and Postmates. Since its beta launch back in January, Grabr has seen an exponential growth in their user base, with over $1 million worth of items in flux on a daily basis thanks to the platform.
