Veho Technologies is re-inventing the way packages are delivered. Using
crowdsourced drivers in their own private vehicles rather than traditional
delivery trucks, our data driven platform provides delivery companies with
a highly efficient way to complete last mile delivery. Veho brings to these
carriers the benefit of a completely flexible fleet with an unprecedented
customer experience, making it easy for anyone to become a delivery driver.
