Amazon’s Growth Speeds Demand for Deliv

Daphne Carmeli, CEO of same-day delivery startup Deliv, freely admits that demand for her business is driven almost entirely by retailers’ fear of Amazon.

“Amazon has almost singlehandedly made same-day the new standard,” Ms. Carmeli said in an interview with The Information. “Our goal is to lay down the plumbing across the country to enable same-day and have it be as ubiquitous as running water...we offer a solution for everyone else.”

“There’s a number of retailers that we’re in process for getting to roll out some unattended and secure delivery as well,” Ms. Carmeli said.
