About PUDO Inc. 
Founded in 2015, PUDO Inc. has developed North America's first parcel pick-up/drop-off network -- no other company in North America offers staffed retail locations, open for extended hours to receive consumer deliveries. Through its network of staffed retail locations and its proprietary technology, PUDO makes parcel delivery to consumers effortless and convenient. E-commerce and brick-and-mortar companies alike can send consumer shipments to staffed, commercial locations selected by the consumer for safe parcel delivery. PUDO's North American network of "PUDOpoints" includes convenience stores, gas station mini-marts and grocery stores -- open for extended hours -- for easy parcel delivery and pick-up.

Through the PUDOpoint™ network, consumers can control parcel deliveries -- receiving online parcels wherever they want, whenever they want- a fully customizable and convenient method of delivery.   PUDO injects convenience and ease into the most problematic leg of parcel delivery - from the carrier's local distribution center to the consumer's front door – called the "last mile" by logistics professionals. PUDO enables carriers to deliver to PUDOpoints that are selected by the consumer. PUDO eliminates the stress and cost of delivery attempts, missed deliveries and stolen parcels. The final destination of the parcel becomes the safe, staffed retail environment of a PUDOpoint. PUDOpoints can be accessed by individuals and companies. This includes consumers who sign up to become PUDO members and companies which utilize PUDO to service their customers. Such companies include retailers and e-tailers, as well as the bourgeoning home-based business workforce.

With user-friendly technology, free membership and thousands of PUDOpoint locations across Canada and the U.S., PUDO is revolutionizing the North American parcel shipping model. PUDO was named one of the top 20 most innovative public technology companies by the Canadian Innovation Exchange in 2015. For more information, please visit: www.pudoinc.com or www.pudopoint.com.
