Missing the FedEx or UPS truck can prove quite aggravating, especially when you have to retrieve the package or figure out a time range to hang at your house in anticipation of the driver’s return. A group of Harvard Business School students not only saw the problem, but came up with an innovative solution.
Their notify start-up, Boxxify.com, not only handles and signs for your packages, but also delivers them by appointment to your doorstep anywhere in the metro Boston area, from 7 p.m. to midnight, Since going live on April 15, the service has attracted more than 1,300 unique visitors and more than 80 customers. We’re targeting entry into several other metro areas over the next 1 to 2 years, including Chicago, Washington, and Atlanta,” says co-founder and COO Paul Moskowitz.
