Take My Things (TMT) is an online platform that provides items delivery through every day-non professional drivers who make the most of their under-utilized cars. TMT is an innovative way of transportation that connects those who need parcel deliveries with those who are on the road.
The idea of TMT comes from Francesco, one of the two TMT co-founders. On the 31st December 2015 around 5pm, Francesco starts his journey of 150miles to his apartment in Liguria.
Once he gets to his destination, he realizes that he has forgot the apartment key in Saluzzo, where he works and live. Instinctively he thinks of calling someone that is about to leave Saluzzo to go to Liguria. In that very moment he would have been more that happy to pay anyone who could have brought him the apartment key by the same evening.
Now, think of how many people are travelling in this moment through Turin, by public transport or by car with 90% of underutilized space.
How many people in this very moment would need:
• their ID
• their front door key
• their battery charger
• any item whose delivery would cost more that the item itself
