Growing Online Marketplace Drives Down Costs for Holiday Shipping - Competitive Rates for Priority Delivery and Connects Drivers with Delivery Jobs

Denver. CO., Dec 14, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- With the cost of FedEx, UPS, and USPS priority shipping rates at an all-time high, consumers are looking for alternate methods to ship their holiday packages and insure that they arrive on time. CitizenShipper is an online shipping marketplace that utilizes a peer-to-peer, auction-style platform to connect people in need of shipping items to a particular location with drivers, haulers and transporters that are already traveling in that direction, and in need of driving jobs. The company's unique design succeeds in driving down shipping costs and that has received special attention from consumers during the holiday season.


CitizenShipper CEO Richard Obousy has seen a triple digit increase in business this month from last year and expects the trend to continue. "Consumers are becoming less willing to pay high priority shipping rates when our company connects them with drivers who offer better service and prices that can save them up to seventy-five percent over other services," said Obousy. "The tremendous growth we've experienced during the past four years leads us to believe that our company model is a strong one." That model allows customers to use CitizenShipper to list a shipment and then gives drivers who want to find driving jobs, haulers, and transporters that are vetted by the company to win these contracts. Bids are accompanied by comprehensive information about the driver, his/her vehicle information, and feedback left for driver by shipping customers they have worked with in the past.

CitizenShipper has more than 38,000 members and offers shipping services in all 50 states and in Canada. The company has become especially popular with people looking to ship unique items like pets, vehicles, large equipment, antique or specialty items that require special care. It's also popular with drivers looking for extra delivery jobs.
