EDWARD Transportation began in May of 2016. Founded by Edward C. Tracey who had spent the majority of his career as a National Logistics Entrepreneur. Edward created the first national retailer and manufacturer, direct to consumer, delivery market place. This was the first time in American history any retailer, manufacturer, catalogue sales and on line retailers who sold big and heavy products were able to ship from any zip code in the U.S.A. and Canada to any zip code in the U.S.A and Canada. Not only was this the first time this was able to be done, but done with technology tracking and tracing and status updates. The last mile industry had been primarily a local or at best a regional service.
Technology played a major role in building the first national network of last mile big and heavy delivery services. under the company called Virtual Delivery Source. Starting out in the small town of Sterling MA CDN was bought out by Mark VII Logistics of Memphis TN. Today the business is run under the name of Excel Logistics. The industry today is a multi billion dollar industry.
Edward retired young and moved to the Golden Isles of Georgia from Atlanta in 2014. In 2016 Edward decided to start driving for Uber as a side gig and to see what this new phenom was all about. As one of the first Uber drivers in the area after over 3000 rides, Edward realized there were gaps in Ubers services and very low compensation to drivers who put lots of miles on their cars and wear and tare. Edward began looking for software he could adapt to a new style rideshare company. A concierge rideshare platform if you will. A study of the area transportation industry showed that there was access to traditional cab service or very expensive limo services. But it was hard to find a concierge model who offered late model vehicles and concierge services combined with a willingness to go anywhere and make a reservation by appointment through our website or state of the art mobile phone app.
In four years we have doubled our business each and every year. Of course like the rest of the hospitality industry Covid 19 has set us back with difficulty finding drivers wanting to drive strangers putting themselves at risk for Covid 19. So it is very important to book reservations as early as possible.
In 2020 EDWARD Transportation expanded to include the entire Coastal Georgia Region as well as Bluffton and Hilton Head, South Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida.
