If you live in a large metropolitan area, then chances are, you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Uber.
In case you aren’t aware, Uber is an on-demand car service. And it’s the future of logistics.
While an on-demand car service as efficient as Uber is an impressive logistical feat, it’s their specials that have really gotten our attention. From Ubers’ Christmas tree delivery program, to ice cream trucks, to boats and even kittens, Uber continues to deliver excellent services efficiently.
“Eventually, like Amazon, it can become something akin to an all-purpose utility–it’ll just be a way you get things and go places,” said Kevin Roose, a writer for the New York Times. “There’s a reason the company recently changed its tagline from ‘Everyone’s private driver’ to the much broader ‘Where lifestyle meets logistics.'”
While Uber is most well-known for the car-service aspect of its business, it may soon just be another way for consumers to get what they want, when they want it—it’s on its way to becoming a global logistics powerhouse.
