AxleHire, a logistics innovator for last-mile delivery, and X Delivery, a tech-driven shipping carrier for top-selling e-commerce brands, today announced that their current partnership now provides customers in Chicago the fastest, cross-country, e-commerce delivery experience in the U.S. Since June, AxleHire has been handling X Delivery client shipments going to the Chicago area with last-mile deliveries through air freight injected into their sortation center.

X Delivery connects high volume shippers with multiple unused warehouses, planes, trucks, sort-centers and last-mile carriers through their 100% tech-based shipping carrier solution. Using innovative technology, AxleHire provides same-day and next-day delivery with ongoing sortation at their Chicago facility. Packages leave the warehouse based on what time they enter, providing an Amazon-level of service that few carriers can provide.

“The operational excellence required in reshaping the logistics market towards asset-light providers such as X Delivery is only possible with detail-oriented, last-mile delivery partners like AxleHire,” said Paul Vinuelas, COO of X Delivery. “By partnering with AxleHire, our clients like BuiltBar, who have a strong demand in Chicago, are now able to expand their clientele with next- and same-day delivery.”

AxleHire currently handles 1,000s of parcels every week for X Delivery including Chicago, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area and has plans to expand their joint network in more markets across the U.S. where AxleHire currently operates.

“Delivery used to rank well below product selection, website navigation, and even check-out when it came to the e-commerce experience, but over the last couple of years and especially since the pandemic began, the customer delivery experience has risen to the top,” said Adam Bryant, CEO of AxleHire. “Because AxleHire and X Delivery are both asset-light, we’re able to provide a faster, more flexible service with competitive pricing.”
