PUDO Inc. (Pick Up/Drop Off) is developing North America’s only “carrier-neutral” parcel pick-up/drop-off network. Through the PUDOpoint™ network, consumers can control parcel deliveries – receiving online parcels wherever they want, whenever they want – a fully customizable and convenient method of delivery.
Cost Savings for Couriers – Courier companies are losing margin every time they have a failed 1st attempt delivery. Couriers that partner with PUDO can use the PUDOpoint network when no one is home to take delivery of their parcel. Couriers have a convenient place to drop the parcels for a fixed price that is much cheaper than a second delivery attempt. Couriers can use the PUDO network to get their parcel the “last mile” into consumers hands.
Cost Savings for E-commerce Deliveries – E-commerce companies are under pressure to provide free/cheap and convenient shipping options to consumers. Shipping directly to PUDOpoints is B2B shipping, saving money, reducing losses and adding options for customers.
Choice, Convenience, Control for Consumers – Consumers can use a PUDOpoint as their ship-to address for purchases from any retailer. Victims of Porch Pirates, consumers who can’t wait around for the courier, consumers who need to sign for age-of-majority purchases, consumers who don’t want to provide their home address, consumers who live in buildings that don’t accept shipments for residents – all of these people can join PUDO for free and take control of their shipping.
Any Courier can deliver to a PUDOpoint – Any PUDO member (E-commerce or Consumer) can ship to a PUDOpoint using any courier/provider. Teaming with PUDO allows access to the PUDOpoint network using any courier/provider. You can choose the best value for any circumstance, and you can change couriers without changing the customer experience.

The final destination of the parcel becomes the safe, staffed retail environment of a PUDOpoint.

Kurtis Arnold, Director
Kurtis Arnold began his career as an Air Traffic Controller (ATC). He’s one of a small group of people who have demonstrated the ability to work under the pressure of guiding aircraft that are carrying tens of thousands of people every day to and from busy airports. With just six years experience, Kurtis was handpicked to lead the biggest project his company had undertook in more than 20 years. Kurtis first learned about the technology in modern aircraft, then worked with teams to build a new “roadmap” for air traffic. The design had to work for the US Military, Canadian Military, US Air Traffic Control, Canadian Air Traffic Control and save the airlines money. Working with these teams to craft the design was just the first step. Then, Kurtis was responsible to make sure that the more than 8,000 changes were published accurately and on schedule. At the same he had to oversee that more than 800 Air Traffic Controllers received the training they needed to be ready to work with the new highways in the sky. When the switch was flipped, the Controllers were ready, the system worked safely, and the airlines realized the savings. With that project wrapped up, Kurtis came to PUDO ready to take on a new challenge; focusing the business plan, building the PUDOpoint network and making it available to the e-commerce industry.
