Philadelphia-based delivery startup goPuff is considered an innovator, not for its breakout growth but for its fast delivery thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The team at goPuff finds cheap warehouses in markets where it wishes to grow and sets up shop there. It then uses an in-house AI-powered system that maps out routes for drivers so that they can deliver the most products to the most locations in the most efficient way possible.
The delivery company does business in more than 150 cities and continues to expand. It has a rotating catalog of products that encompasses many c-store items, including packaged snacks and beverages, over-the-counter medication, alcohol and more.
