In addition to several dozen operations staff already in market, Veho will be adding over a hundred new full-time employees in the Midwest by the end of 2023 for the continued expansion and operation of the newly opened facilities. Moreover, thousands of independent driver-partners are already using the Veho app to earn.

“As we continue to scale our premium customer experience across the U.S., doubling down on our growing Midwest customers and partners was a natural next step. We continue to focus on expanding our footprint in areas where our clients see the most value and are looking forward to bringing a new, customer-first delivery experience to the Midwest,” said Itamar Zur, co-founder and CEO of Veho.

With its company-operated facilities in-market, including sort centers and depots, Veho facilitates next-day delivery from a brand’s distribution center all the way to customers’ doors via its technology platform and a network of independent crowdsourced drivers.
