Heavy-goods white-glove delivery platform Deliveright is offering a trial version of its final-mile platform Grasshopper to businesses interested in testing out how its technology can improve logistics operations.

Grasshopper Lite enables real-time data and delivery tracking from the point of origin to the customer’s home. It also offers shipping cost analysis and service levels ranging from curbside to full white-glove delivery.

“Customers expect an exceptional experience regardless of the state of the supply chain, and it’s on market leaders to integrate technology into the traditionally manual world of transporting and delivering large, tangible products,” said Doug Ladden, CEO of Deliveright. “Our team is dedicated to developing digital solutions to help delivery companies and merchants provide better and more transparent service to their customers.”

Deliveright’s Grasshopper platform is an AI-powered platform and automates complicated logistics, including final-mile delivery of big and bulky items such as furniture, with a focus on e-commerce and retail orders.

Grasshopper Lite users are provided access to the Grasshopper environment account upon signing up. Within minutes, operators can enter orders and schedule deliveries. Grasshopper combines warehouse management systems and transportation management systems under one roof, enabling increased visibility between steps and a more streamlined flow of information, reducing manual work, human error and costly delays, paving the way for a smoother shipping experience, the company explained.

Grasshopper also provides instant quotes to customers.


In December, Deliveright expanded its operational base to include Canada. The company offers e-commerce, dedicated and less-than-truckload, warehousing and rapid fulfillment, and business-to-business distribution services across its network.
