DRAIVER’s platform offers an industry agnostic solution to the delivery, re-positioning and routing of vehicles. Our platform and vetted pool of drivers allows businesses to move their vehicles faster and with more visibility that ultimately results in greater utilization of each vehicle. For the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics in Chicago, DRAIVER’s platform was used to transport participants, volunteers and ambassadors from their hotels to events at various locations throughout the city. DRAIVER’s platform is accessible from the web and our app and provides businesses real-time updates on the location of each vehicle. Drop-off destinations are completely customizable and can even be changed on trips already in progress. Ultimately, DRAIVER’s platform and driver pool would permit delivery services to serve more people in a larger area with the same number of vehicles.

Dan Rizzo Thank you for posting about your organization! I am a Michigan Central Station Challenge facilitator. It sounds like your organization has developed an impressive way to manage fleets of vehicles. Can you tell me a little bit more about how you envision that you would implement this solution in our challenge's impact area? How would you measure the success of implementation? Thank you!
