GO FETCH HITS BRISBANE WITH ITS PEER TO PEER 'FETCHER' MODEL
THE 'Uber for errands' app has arrived in Brisbane this week with the launch of GoFetch.
The app, which launched in Melbourne joins the host of peer-to-peer convenience based tools like Uber, Airtasker, and Deliveroo already available to make lives easier and cheaper with the press of a button.
Founder and Managing Director, Blair Smith, says the model and on-demand network of self-employed "fetchers" hands control of personal logistics back into the paws of individuals.
"GoFetch is a cheaper, faster, easier and a friendlier delivery service," says Smith.
GoFetch matches the fetcher with a job at a competitive rate, and the fetcher walks, rides, catches public transport, or drives to make the delivery.
Already 80 fetchers have already signed up in Brisbane, and corporate partners of the app include IGA, local florists, and even chemists.
The service is available both on an iPhone or via the more business-friendly website.
Like its inspiration, Uber, which has disrupted the taxi industry, GoFetch is looking to disrupt traditional courier services with plans to launch more intensive and larger deliveries in the future.
Business News Australia spoke with Blair Smith about how GoFetch came into existence, the company's plans for going public, and the how the app is set to disrupt the courier industry. Read more
