Rapidus Expands On Demand Delivery Service To Los Angeles

Rapidus, an on-demand, ground courier service, said today that it has expanded into Los Angeles, offering up local businesses with one hour and same day delivery services. The startup--based in San Francisco--says that the expansion is its first out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Like many other, on-demand delivery services, Rapidus is tapping into a network of contract drivers to offer up the service; the company says it differs from those other services, in that those drivers follow selected routes fit around their daily routines, enabling "package stacking" and multiple deliveries in one trip.
