The DeliveryApp Story
The idea for DeliveryApp came to tech-innovator Lance when plans with a friend were ruined waiting for a delayed courier to arrive. Since then, Lance has been on a quest to create a solution which connects couriers and customers – providing all the delivery information at their fingertips.
Now a fully integrated tech platform with a network of over 500 drivers across the country and growing every day, DeliveryApp is quickly revolutionising the logistics industry.
Our values underpin our business
TechForFutures: We’re passionate about technology and know that technology will create huge opportunities for people in the future. Our TechForFutures campaign invests time and money to helping children and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds learn digital skills such as coding and UX.
Fair Treatment: We believe that everybody should be treated fairly and ethically. This can be seen through our ethical treatment of our drivers but also runs far deeper into the DNA of our business. We expect all our colleagues and customers to treat each other fairly and with respect. We have a zero tolerance to any form of hate or abuse.
A Greener Tomorrow: We want to see a greener future and have our bit to play in reducing our impact on the planet. That’s why we’re actively rewarding our drivers who use hybrid and electric vehicles. We’re also doing our bit in other ways to help reduce our carbon footprint such as using green energy suppliers.
Our People: We’re dedicated to our colleagues and want to see them realise their potential. Our inclusive recruitment policy celebrates individuality and strives for a diverse workplace. Our vibrant culture inspires future innovators and we want to see our people have bright futures within the business.
