If you travel regularly or have friends who often do, there will always be “orders”. Who, when and where to travel … Friendshipper is a revolutionary platform shipments to wear and receive orders through their friends.

Friendshippr is an application available for iOS and Android , which is based on a very simple model and known to all: ask a friend to drive or bring a custom when traveling.

However, it is sometimes difficult to know who, where and when to go. This app solves the problem and simplifies the process, allowing to connect directly with their Facebook friends, so that anyone can advertise their travel or publish orders and shipments need to accomplish. Additionally, if desired, may offer rewards like a drink, a dinner invitation or whatever you deem appropriate to thank the person who will help.

 

The service is defined itself as crowdshipping, a model that is based on a simple solution that anyone could have thought: if sometimes is too slow on delivery services, charges very high or are not as reliable. Why not use the people in your circle of trust to carry them out?

At the University of Los Angeles in California (UCLA), for example, recently it created a platform called Runner, which under a similar Friendshippr scheme will allow students, faculty and staff offered to carry items to other members of the campus for certain price.
