I 3rd the Doug MCA vote!

You sound like Jerry Seinfeld Doddsy!

Where did you get the idea that we at Twinjet are promoting anything in
that capacity? (We aren't)

In fact, several of the companies using TJ pay hourly, some pay strictly
commission, others pay their couriers some combo of both.

As far as how much they make, most make seem enough to keep working at the
companies that use Twinjet.

If anything we promote openness and transparency within courier services.
We are trying to build a community and network of like minded grassroots
courier owned and run delivery services. We specifically designed TJ with
traveling in mind, to encourage physical community and skill-sharing across
our network.

(Came in handy Sunday when one of our clients at TCB unexpectedly doubled
their volume and simultaneous to that we had a dude call out of work. Nick
G from pdx/San Diego was at the TCB office during shit storm and mentioned
he had a TJ profile. We need an extra rider and adding him to TCB was a 1
minute process. 10 minutes later he had jobs on board an en route. Saved
the day. Thanks Nick !)

If you're interested in a demo or would like us to contribute to your
research (we know a lot about current courier tech, like a lot a lot) feel
free to reach out to me, or (international party dude) Matt Savoia, or
Chas. (Doug Suriano does a great deal for Twinjet, answering questions
about it isn't one of them, so don't bother...)
