OUR STORY

“Rynly” means “people power,” and comes from the Chinese characters 人力 (pronounced rén · lì). Our name is inspired by the crowd-sourced nature of our platform, and serves as a nod to the people-powered delivery methods we’ve seen embraced in Asia. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves: Rynly was founded to solve a problem right here at home.

Fast, inexpensive shipping has become the established norm, and that convenience comes with a cost – both financial and environmental. Faster fulfillment traditionally mean less efficient fulfillment. As a result, businesses that can’t subsidize their shipping costs risk obsolescence, and the environment incurs a cost we’ll all end up paying in the end.

Rynly was founded to tackle this problem. Noting number of single-occupancy vehicles on the road, we bonded over a shared realization: why not utilize the millions of cars already on the road to power a smarter, greener shipping solution? We took this crowd-sourced kernel of an insight, built a scalable data platform around it, and made it intelligent by leveraging machine learning.

We’re Rynly, and we’re putting shipping in your hands.
