Crowdshipping: delivery of goods by non-professionals tapping into existing travel routes.
Nimber is a community delivery solution that connects people who need to send something with someone going that way, anyway. By working together as a community we can make shipping easier, sustainable, cost-effective and friendly.

Crowd shipping is one of those massive trends that are here to stay. Just like you are now considering Airbnb for each of your trips away from home, platforms like Nimber (a community-based delivery solution, making use of spare capacity and the power of community to solve the challenges of delivery) seem to be the perfect choice for wine merchants, winegrowers or private customers targeting urban deliveries.
Spare capacity could be found through individuals deciding use their commuting time to deliver goods (and are paid depending on the distance they have to cover and the time it takes) or regular shippers. If you want to send a package, you will be presented with different prices options, depending on the emergency and the power you want to hold in the decision making (when exactly will the package be delivered).
