Miami is the first test site in the U.S. to experience the new smart phone application that will bring the age-old courier process to the 21st Century. Consumers and drivers can join this innovative community of app users for the first time in Miami-Dade County.
“We were successful with this app in Norway, so we wanted to revolutionize the delivery business in the U.S. with the ASAP app beginning in Miami-Dade County,” Larsen said. “Miami was the ideal city for our launch due to its large population and land mass as well as the fact that it is one of the top 20 fastest growing cities in the U.S. for economic growth.”
