  • What is Kaargo?
    Kaargo is your neighborhood trusted community shipping network that connects individuals who want to ship packages to their loved ones with travelers who want to monetize their excess luggage capacity. Say goodbye to exorbitant shipping fees and impersonal courier services – with Kaargo, you can save both money and the environment by utilizing existing travel routes. Kaargo is on a mission to revolutionize the way packages travel, prioritizing trust, reliability and cost-effectiveness. Kaargo aims to connect trusted international travelers with excess luggage capacity to individuals who need to ship small items internationally. Often, these individuals find existing shipping options unsuitable for their needs due to cost, delivery times, or lack of trust in the service. We solve this problem by linking these individuals (Shippers) with trustworthy and vetted frequent international travelers who have excess capacity in their luggage. By providing this service at a significantly lower cost compared to traditional shipping methods like FedEx, UPS, and USPS, Kaargo aims to make shipping more accessible to all. The key to achieving this lies in the collaboration of all parties involved in the package transport logistics. The Kaargo community operates as a cohesive team, leveraging collective efforts and operational efficiency. This approach offers several advantages: Minimized Handoffs: The package experiences the least "change of hands," reducing the risk of mishandling and ensuring a smoother and more reliable journey from point A to B. Cost Savings for Shippers: Shippers benefit from cost-effective shipping options, allowing them to send their packages without breaking the bank. Fair Compensation for Travelers: Travelers are fairly compensated for the valuable service they provide by carrying packages on their trips, effectively monetizing their extra luggage capacity. Secure Deliveries for Receivers: Receivers can safely and confidently receive their packages at the destination, knowing that the process is supported by a trustworthy and responsible community of Travelers. Potential for Reciprocal Shipments: In some cases, receivers may even have the opportunity to send something back to the shipper through the return journey of the Traveler, creating a mutually beneficial shipping ecosystem. By fostering collaboration and a sense of shared responsibility among Shippers, Travelers, and Receivers, Kaargo delivers a seamless and cost-effective shipping experience. Through this innovative approach, Kaargo envisions a future where shipping is not just a transaction but a community-driven effort, bringing people together through a shared commitment to efficient and reliable package transport.
