ShipperBee Unveils Hive Technology to Canadian Gas & Convenience Owners at Convenience U CARWACS
ShipperBee announced today the unveiling of its network of transfer mailboxes, called Hives, for the first time in Canada at the 2020 NACS Show being held at Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto,March 3-4, 2020.
ShipperBee is a first-of-its-kind end-to-end delivery system that pays commuters and other drivers to deliver parcels using its network of Hive transfer mailboxes located at gas and convenience locations throughout North America. Certified, background checked, and rated drivers use these Hives as pick-up and drop-off points for packages, like a baton in a relay.
“With more than 5,000 attendees, the 2020 Convenience U CARWACS Show provides an ideal opportunity to showcase our Hives, and their value, to gas and convenience retailers throughout Canada,” said ShipperBee’s founder and chief executive officer,Jim Estill. “Attendees can visit us at booth 531 to see a live demonstration of the Hive and discover how becoming a Hive host can open their brand up to a whole new profit channel without any investment — one that can earn an additional source of income in parcel profit and add new annual gas and convenience revenue.”
Hive hosts are paid for every parcel that passes through the Hives. They also benefit from moving two potential customers — the drop-off driver and pick-up driver — through their locations as parcels move through the Hive network. In return, hosts benefit from increased fuel sales, in-store traffic and new loyalty rewards members through a whole new audience segment.
ShipperBee also offers a holistic data-driven view into location-specific insights surrounding visitor demographics and behaviours to drive better business outcomes. Hive hosts can then leverage this data to proactively targeting, incentive and measure the increase in traffic and in-store purchases by their newly captured market segment.
The company will also deliver an educational session on March 4th at 11 am entitled,“Effortless Ways to Increase Gas and Convenience Revenue,” where attendees will discover four key ways to drive additional profit and revenue in their locations without any investment or upfront costs.
