Postmates is a company that works as a food delivery service company in America. It is owned by Uber and offers local delivery of prepared meals and other goods. Postmates's service uses mobile phone applications to matches consumer orders.
Postmates has the mission to allow anyone to have anything delivered on demand. Postmates is transforming the way goods move around cities via its revolutionary Urban Logistics platform that connects customers to local couriers who can deliver anything from their favorite restaurant or retailer in minutes.
Postmates was launched by Bastian Lehmann, Sean Plaice, and Sam Street in 2011. When Postmates was launched, it marketed itself as the new Craigslist. Buyers in San Francisco could have anything delivered in two to four hours. It was targeted primarily at small businesses, and took a few years to pivot to consumers.
In the middle of the coronavirus pandemic by mid 2020, where there was higher demand for services delivering items, Postmates made it known it was delivering a selection of non-contact delivery options for its customers. The company encouraged customers to complain if their delivery driver seemed sick when delivering.
