The 357 Company is launching 357 Kerbsyde to ship products or short-deadline products. 357 Kerbsyde is a last-mile Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) and Business-to-Business (B2B) delivery service.
“Last mile transportation is seeing explosive growth, and we have positioned Kerbsyde to capitalize on this opportunity for D2C and B2B,” said Brandon Goehl, co-founder and chief strategy officer. “We listen, then execute. Kerbsyde will help fill the massive last-mile transportation gap created by the boom in e-commerce over the past decade that grew exponentially during COVID lockdowns and continues to surge."
- time-sensitive/just-in-time delivery of raw materials and parts to manufacturers
- distribution and fulfillment of product from manufacturers to retailers, and from retailers to local businesses
- delivery of items requiring recipient signature, ID verification, or added services to consumer, manufacturer, or retailers’ doorsteps.
“In addition, thanks to our expertise in cannabis and hemp, we’re ahead of the game in filling the D2C hemp delivery gap left when many major carriers, such as UPS and FedEx, ceased shipping of all or nearly all hemp products due to the Federal PACT Act legislation,” Goehl said. “The U.S. Postal Service’s announcement that they are slowing first class mail delivery creates yet another opportunity for us to provide fast, efficient last-mile delivery.”
According to a new report from Technavio, the last-mile delivery market size in North America is expected to grow by $59.81 billion over the next four years.
“As specialists in transport of highly regulated cargo, this e-commerce boom presents a great business opportunity to fill a need for customers who desire to have their favorite high value products shipped securely to their doors,” said JP Mendoza, 357 vice president of operational excellence. “We’re thrilled to have built a network of shipping partners to provide last-mile solutions to 50 metropolitan areas and more to come.”
The company’s leadership team has more than 50 years of logistics and supply chain management experience in addition to developing operational processes and procedures for the medical cannabis and restaurant delivery industries.
