RALEIGH – Apartment residents in the Triangle now can choose delivery of packages to their residences viat startup service Fetch.

Fetch, which says it is the “first and only off-site package management solution for apartment communities,”  launched in the Raleigh-Durham market Tuesday.

“The demand for off-site package management solutions continues to grow, and we’re excited to introduce our direct-to-door service to multifamily communities in the Raleigh-Durham area,” said Michael Patton, founder and CEO of Fetch. “Our team has already hit the ground running, and we’re happy to completely lift the package burden from property teams across the region. This launch is just the next step in our continued expansion, and we look forward to rolling out the Fetch solution in additional markets later this year.”

The company joins other firms such as Amazon in to-customer deliveries. Amazon is expanding its network of local distribution operations in the Triangle to meet demand for so-called last-mile delivery. Fetch also stores packages at managed sites before working with customers to schedule a delivery.

“Residents receive an instant notification when their package arrives, and using the Fetch app they can schedule a convenient delivery window,” the company says. “Fetch delivers packages directly to residents’ doors at their chosen day and time – including same-day and can accommodate large packages and perishable items that have become a norm for online ordering since the pandemic.”

Fetch says it delivered 3.3 million packages in 2020 and expects to increase that total to more than 8.3 million this year.

Fetch also operates in Charlotte as well as Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Denver, and other major cities.

The company launched in 2016.
