With marketplace platforms, you are dealing with a “middle-man” where you and your drivers will not get access to your customer’s information, and yet you will be charged more with commission fees.
The Benefits of Using Your Own Driver
There are many advantages and benefits with using your own in-house drivers compared to using third-party delivery drivers. Some of these advantages include:
