Logistics startup Circle logistics is aiming to provide users with a new and innovative way to manage their logistics needs.
It launched the Circle logistics app for Android on Thursday, and has since rolled out to iOS and Android.
The app allows users to add an “aeroslide” for any ride to a route, then send a rider the exact amount of air that they need.
Users can then track the exact time, distance, and cost of each ride by entering their own zip code.
The company claims the app will be available on all major platforms and that it will be able to deliver up to $2.3 billion worth of goods within the next five years.
Circle logistics cofounder and CEO John O’Donnell said that the app’s launch is “designed to provide a platform for the world’s largest logistics company to grow, thrive, and compete on a global scale.”
Circle is using the same technology that is used by Uber and other ride-sharing companies to make the app work.
O’Connell said that he believes that the technology will be particularly useful to smaller companies and individuals, who are more likely to have limited resources to manage a ride, as well as larger businesses that are able to hire staff.
“The biggest challenge is in terms of logistics, so it’s really the logistics side of things, the logistics aspect of logistics that we’re trying to tackle,” O’Connor said.
“I think the biggest challenge for us in terms at this time, in terms the next three years, is getting more and more companies onboard with it and really ramping up our services.”
The company plans to expand its mobile apps in the coming months.
O’donn said that Circle will be looking to expand to a range of other platforms.
For instance, the company has partnered with ride-hailing app Lyft to offer riders a $100 credit toward their first ride.
The startup is also developing an online logistics app.
For example, it has a new app that will allow users to track their trips and get in touch with drivers.
Circle is also looking to integrate its data with data from its own self-driving car project.
The two companies also plan to integrate some of their services with the new Google Maps service that Google launched last year.
Circle, however, has no plans to integrate with Uber.
In the meantime, the app is already showing up in the Google Maps app for iOS and Google Maps for Android.
O’monnell said that, while Circle is working on adding more features to the app, the focus of the app right now is primarily on its mobile application.
“Right now we’re focused on mobile, really, our focus is on getting it to a point where we can build an app that’s easy to use, easy to navigate, easy for people to get, easy on the environment, easy if you want to have a bike or something like that,” O’dons said.
The Circle logistics startup has been working on the mobile app for about a year, but O’dones said that they were able to quickly roll out the app to the Android platform after the first launch.
“We actually launched our mobile app in the last week or two, and it’s been really phenomenal,” Odedons said, adding that he expects the company will be ready for the Google Play Store release in the next few weeks.
Oedney said that as the app becomes more popular, it will become more useful for users.
“One of the things that we’ve done is we’ve kind of done a couple of things that kind of sort of tie together the logistics and our business and what our customers want from us, and so it becomes really useful for the users,” he said.
For now, O’donal said that only riders who own their own bikes will be allowed to use the app.
But O’doonn said the company would be open to adding other kinds of rides to the ride-share app.
“If there’s somebody who has a bicycle and wants to use it for something other than just their ride, we would be willing to do that,” he told The Verge.
“Our vision is to make it really easy for the user, and I think the user is the one that has the most to lose.”
Circle currently has two employees working on its app.
Odedon said that both of the engineers have already completed the work needed to create the app and are working full-time on the app while the rest of the team is focused on the launch of the mobile apps.
“These are really awesome guys,” Oedon said.
