Is there an Uber-type service in clinical logistics’ future?
On the Move Systems is a logistics company that intends to leverage the “service economy” to offer logistics services in multiple industries.
On the Move Systems (Henderson, NV), a relatively new and relatively small logistics company, says that it is putting together a business plan to offer courier services on a “service economy” basis. The term has been made famous most notably by Uber, the car-sharing service that has grown to a $50-billion multinational behemoth in the past few years (and for all we know, Uber might want to take a look at courier services itself). Rather than dealing with established local taxi companies, in Uber’s case, prescreened drivers with their own cars connect with their fares via a web-based IT system. Pricing, within some constraints, is dynamic, based on demand and the availability of drivers at any given time and location.
