    Question Misc is this a better business model compared to my employer???

    I'm a glorified uber driver who delivers medicines to peoples houses,I use my own car and get to deliver 30+ packages or less daily.

    My employers business model is to use a personal car to deliver peoples packages to there house.I'm thinking of creating a company with it's own cars to deliver medicines to peoples house,so that my employees wont have to use their own car.They can take the car home by the end of the day so they don't have to drive back to the office which is sometimes 40+ minutes away from there last location.It will also attract more people to join my own company cause they don't have to use their own car,the grow will be massive.

    Yeah but drones can't carry 30+ packages to locations that are sometimes 30 minutes away in all weather conditions.

    your model is better if youre running a large(r) scale operation, but not for a small business.

    the best bet is to have your employees use their own cars, and actually you should have them bill you as independent contractors so they arent "employees".

    I'm thinking of making it large in the future,we specialized in delivering medicines in just a couple of hours instead of waiting for USPS,FEDEX that can take days.All the packages are not heavy they are very light.

    Why would your model be more profitable? Running a fleet is so goddamn expensive. Your employer passes that cost onto you. Smart for them, sucks for you. Profiting in the logistics industry is about cutting costs to the absolute bone and micro-optimizing every little detail.

    If anything, they are probably figuring out how to make you guys all 1090's like uber so they can further suppress your wages and skip out on paying any sort of benefits. That's the american way.

    I don't think there is enough need for it. You have a person deliver 10 meds a day, is that really worth the amount you are paying them?

    Why just meds? Why not expand to anything?

    Another idea:

    - Find uber/lyft drivers who want to make extra trips during slow times
    - Have them undergo whatever training is needed and build a fleet
    - Pay them slightly above normal passenger rates, but still less than medical delivery rates (this is your profit margin)
    - Build a piece of software that can automate the connections
    - Take a little nipper of profit for yourself
    - Pay me 10%
