The two initial offerings are Metro-To-Metro Today Delivery that guarantees door-to-door pick up and delivery within ten hours and Metro-To-Metro Sunrise Delivery that guarantees overnight delivery as early as 6:30 am. With Velocity’s round the clock service and Greyhound’s extensive schedule of buses between cities, the new service offers late evening pick-ups with early morning deliveries.
Velocity Express has an extensive nationwide delivery network that includes a web-based proprietary system for track and trace. The GPX division of Greyhound moves more than one million shipments each year.
At the outset, the new service will work in three city pairs: New York City – Boston, New York City – Philadelphia and Dallas – Houston, with additional pairs to be added. For example, Greyhound has 50 New York – Boston deliveries each day.
