PUDO Inc. is North America’s only carrier-neutral parcel pick-up and drop-off counter Network, conceived to resolve the last-mile parcel-traffic-control gridlock that challenges North America’s $827B e-commerce sector, and eliminate over $6B in door-dropped parcel theft annually.

PUDO’s team of logistics and parcel traffic management experts have created a plug- and-play, pay-as-you-go platform and Network of parcel pick-up and drop-off storefront counters known as PUDOpoint Counters, strategically located very near to where people live, work and play.

The PUDO model reduces or eliminates crippling last-mile related expenses for online retailers, marketplaces, and carrier/delivery partners, with fulfillment and distribution solutions that include parcel storage and consolidation for click-and-collect deliveries, online returns, and the nearly 35% of e-commerce parcels that are undeliverable on the first attempt.

Membership in the PUDOpoint Counters Network program offers consumers parcel receipt certainty’, early/late/weekend pick-up and return convenience, 100% elimination of door-drop parcel theft, and a mobile home-away-from-home address Network that goes wherever they go.

The PUDOpoint Counters Network provides all carriers, retailers, and consumers with badly needed cost controls, choice, and convenience.

E-commerce is a global megatrend accelerated by the enduring pandemic.

Billions of e-commerce parcels worth $4T* annually traverse the planet efficiently until they hit the so-called “last mile”.

The World Economic Forum has declared e-commerce's last-mile gridlock, a major economic and environmental concern.

E-commerce giants like Amazon and Purolator have partnered with PUDO to resolve gridlock, reduce delivery expenses and improve customer satisfaction. Directing just 1% of North America’s $1T** retail e-commerce parcel traffic (~13B† units) through the PUDOpoint Counters network could realize PUDO +$845M*** gross revenue annually

Notwithstanding the massive global disruption to the e-commerce supply chain caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce as a whole and logistics, in particular, adjusted at lightning speed to recover and gain considerable ground. This underscores the importance of relationships and network integration during the critical last mile.

Amidst all of this, PUDO was able to accelerate PUDOpoint activation, optimize operator systems, and enhance the customer experience. E-commerce and courier giants hit hardest by the pandemic, looked to PUDO to help them extend their networks on a contracted pay-as-they-go basis, which was in and of itself validation that the PUDOpoint Network model works as it was designed to, and is scalable as long as it's funded and there are enough people in place to ensure IT.

The pandemic turned the world’s attention away from the ‘world on fire’ environmental story that was capturing headlines and driving social and economic policy straight through to the end. As they emerge from the pandemic with new normal standards of living, the environment is returning as a policy issue domestically and globally. The timing is serendipitous for the Company. Consumers are back in the driver’s seat, exercising small change to affect big change, and this widespread empowerment is a huge opportunity for PUDO. For the most part, e-commerce consumers are mobile, tech-savvy, and aware.

Environment aside, the greatest percentage of heavy e-commerce users participate in the sharing economy and understand that community-based support can drive positive social change. In leveraging these sensibilities with consumers and like-minded business organizations, PUDO has a wide-open opportunity to grow their business from a consumer membership level, and by default involve the many e-commerce ecosystem players that those consumer-members conduct online business with; including those overseas.(NULL)

Finally, looking forward to a post-pandemic North America where people have established or re-established relationships with community-based businesses, the very notion of consumer, courier, and online retailer support for a network built on community-based small businesses operating PUDOpoint Counters, is very promising.
