put your box in someone else’s luggage
That’s what start-up, Carry, is trying to get you to do. The idea: forgo insane shipping costs and send your goods with a stranger. Sounds a little sketchy, but the idea is actual pretty smart. Through a peer-to-peer platform, Carry will pair you up with someone that’s traveling to the same destination and have them deliver your package. It's a way to save money for the shipper and earn money for the courier. Sure there are some obstacles that will need to be overcome, you can read more here, but if they’re able to address these issues Carry could be the next big thing in shipping.
