onboarding 140000

Irvine, CA (February 10, 2021)

Delivery Drivers, Inc. (DDI), a leading third-party administrator specializing in last-mile delivery, announced their plan to onboard more than 140,000 delivery drivers by the end of 2021.

“DDI is proud of our role to create these entrepreneurial opportunities for drivers,” said DDI’s owner and CEO, Aaron Hageman. “Delivery drivers have always been essential but especially this year, we’ve seen a demand for more drivers across all industries, from grocery to e-commerce.”

During the pandemic, millions of Americans experienced unemployment, reduced work hours, or even furloughs. The Congressional Budget Office’s Economic Outlook for 2021-2025 expects that employment will not return to pre-pandemic levels until 2024.


Booming Gig Economy Creates New Opportunities for Independent Contractors

Businesses across industries turned to delivery services to adapt to the pandemic restrictions and purchasing behavior of their customers. With the growing gig economy, delivery drivers as independent contractors quickly surged. It became a way to help people earn money and enjoy the freedom of being an entrepreneur. 

DDI’s national driver base was four times larger by the end of 2020, and projects significant growth in 2021 as more companies expand into delivery. As companies see the consumer demand for delivery, they will need to implement their own independent contractor delivery model. They will turn to a partner like DDI to streamline their business.
