In 2012, as part of a graduate school project, I took a trip to Mabara, Uganda and met a group of great people serving a small children’s hospital in the middle of Africa. After talking with the local staff, I came to realize how much this remote hospital relied on its network of traveling friends and family to deliver important supplies to sustain their operation.
As I traveled after graduation, I started witnessing how much this person-to-person shipping network was very much of a reality for many countries in the emerging economy. Here, human ingenuity and kindness overcame the challenge of logistics in delivering a much-needed service through the family and friends network that delivered goods quickly, safely and reliably. Since then my team and I have been working tirelessly to build a network that connects friends, families, and community together on the Mahalio Network.
We want to offer the world another option to ship packages that is more affordable, faster, and reliably around the world, while bridging the geographic gap between people. We believe that together we can improve the shipping industry, contribute to the reduction of our carbon footprint that results from our logistic redundancy while inspiring human connectivity.
