Delta Cargo adds US same-day parcel delivery from Atlanta

Delta Cargo has partnered with Roadie, an Atlanta-based parcel service, to launch DASH Door-to-Door for US nationwide same-day delivery.

In an industry-first for a US passenger airline, the 24/7 pick-up and delivery service, from a business or home address, is now available from Atlanta to over 55 cities in the US.

The companies plan to expand DASH Door-to-Door to “dozens more cities” before the end of the year.

A spokesperson for Delta Cargo said that DASH Door-to-Door pairs TSA-approved drivers with air cargo to create “the fastest cross-country door-to-door service available in the US, with competitive prices”. 

Matt Weisenburg, Delta’s director – cargo strategy and alliances, said: “The launch of DASH Door-to-Door is a game changer for Delta Cargo, as anyone who needs to get a small parcel somewhere urgently can now have a same-day delivery, door-to-door service in the US, without having to travel to the airport.

“We have been working with Roadie since 2015 on the passenger side of the business and have seen great customer satisfaction with the transparency and quality of the service.  So, we wanted to continue this momentum and bring this innovative product offering to our cargo customers.” 

DASH Door-to-Door was created for time-critical shipments in industries including medical, manufacturing, automotive,  and industrial parts.

It offers customers a dynamic price quote, with a single booking for flights with pick-up/delivery, as well as end-to-end tracking and real-time status updates.

With more than 150,000 verified drivers nationwide, Roadie already has the largest local same-day delivery footprint in the nation and reaches 89% of all US households.

Expanding that same-day footprint coast-to-coast is the next milestone in the company’s growth.

Marc Gorlin, founder and chief executive of Roadie, said: “Customers want what they want when they want it. This partnership means we can deliver – whether it’s across town or across the country.

“Roadie was first to market with an ‘on-the-way’ delivery service utilizing excess capacity in passenger vehicles already on the road.

“Expanding our model into the belly of a B737 is just the latest step in realizing our vision to make same-day delivery faster, more efficient and more sustainable.”

DASH Door-to-Door is for packages less than 100lbs and less than 90 linear inches and is available to all customers. TSA Known Shipper status is required to ship packages over 16oz and a streamlined registration is available directly on deltacargo.com. It has a limited money back service guarantee.
