  • Consumers can now sign on their own mobile devices using the AxleHire app for deliveries requiring a signature. No more touching the driver’s mobile device to sign for your package.
  • Ability to sign for your package on your device before it is delivered
  • Recipients can opt out of attended delivery using the AxleHire app
  • To facilitate delivery, consumers can update their delivery instructions, including building access codes, in real-time on the AxleHire app

“Social distancing is one of the key ways to slow the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and because of this, the team at AxleHire reimagined the home delivery process for consumers so that our drivers and recipients can maintain the proper distance,” according to Daniel Sokolovsky, founder of AxleHire. “A key feature of No-Touch Delivery now allows consumers to sign for packages on their mobile device, therefore the recipient does not have to touch the driver’s mobile device to sign for a package. This means our drivers and the recipient can maintain at least a safe six-foot distance from each other.”

“AxleHire’s technology platform was developed to be not only scalable, but also flexible to meet the changing needs of consumers and unforeseen events,” stated Sokolovsky. “Working closely with our retail and eCommerce partners, we developed this new suite of tools to meet not only their needs but those of their consumers in these challenging times.”
