PUDO currently has more than 5,000 PUDO Point™ dealers signed up across North America, and a network that continues to grow each day with dealers becoming operational. For these dealers, PUDO provides opportunities for additional foot traffic and the potential for repeat customer business. As the last mile delivery solution for e-commerce purchases, PUDO has created affiliate agreements with some of North America's most well-known retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Hudson's Bay and Walmart to ensure customers never miss a home delivery again.
