Meet the Uber of the package delivery service

Uber uses technology to disrupt the taxi business and Airbnb is using it to disrupt the hotel field. Now, Austin-based Dropoff has arrived in Miami and Fort Lauderdale with technology to disrupt the delivery business.

The company already has some big names clients – Whole Foods, Neiman Marcus, JW Marriott and Cushman & Wakefield – after launching in Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Los Angeles.

Dropoff says the core of technology includes web and mobile ordering capabilities, real-time tracking and confirmations plus a 24/7/365 dispatch automation named Intelligent Dispatch. It is also using API technology to integrate into clients’ e-commerce sites or warehouse management software.

The company says its agents are subject to background checks, insured and compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA).

A check of the Dropoff website shows prices vary depending on how soon you need to make the delivery. For example, a delivery from SFBW’s office at 3511 W. Commercial Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale to the 600 Brickell Office building in Miami was quoted at $74.06 for ASAP and $52.56 for four-hour service. A delivery from 200 E. Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale to 20801 Biscayne Boulevard in Aventura was $38.26 for ASAP and $26.76 for four hours. There were also options for two-hour delivery

Dropoff says it will support a variety of industries throughout Miami and Fort Lauderdale, including healthcare, retail, commercial and industrial, professional services, and food and grocery.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
