Michael Preysman, founder and CEO of Everlane, says itâ€™s not much more expensive to do one-hour delivery with Postmates than it is to ship from the companyâ€™s warehouse in Denver.
sees the rise of cheap same-day delivery as a smartphone-driven phenomenon.
â€œThereâ€™s this whole network of couriers that have come about, whether itâ€™s Uber, which is doing a bit of delivery stuff, or Postmates, or Instacart, which is starting to bring in more than just groceries,â€ he
said. â€œThereâ€™s this massive workforce thatâ€™s completely mobile all the time that didnâ€™t exist three years ago.â€
noted that same-day delivery is still in its early days, though.
â€œWe donâ€™t totally know what the impact is going to be, but there were two ideas,â€ he
said. â€œOne is that the convenience is just amazing â€" you order and literally 40 minutes later, itâ€™s at your doorstep.
