Our developers at EVE-Mogul have been hard at work at bringing a concept to life that may change how couriers are done in eve. I’m posting here to get some early feedback about the system so we can either improve, or scrap the idea.
Currently, there are only really three ways to get things moved around new eden. Using in-alliance/corp haulers and logistics, public courier contracts and linking into a channel, or using one of the freight companies who then hire their own haulers. After watching how Uber/Lyft disrupted the taxi market, I thought that maybe something similar could work for couriers. The new system will incorporate public couriers, but with a website that automatically aggregates the couriers into an easy to read list for haulers to pick and choose with ease.
Version 1 of this will be proof of concept. We have built in a reward point system as well, that rewards haulers who deliver to the EVE-Mogul structures at no cost to the shipper. We are also building a “trusted structure” database, so haulers can accept contracts with the peace of mind that they won’t be locked out and scammed.
Version 2 will include a “hauler rating” and “contracting rating”, time completion rewards, etc. At this point we will look at monetizing it in some way, mainly just to cover the rewards since those are being written off as an expense by Mogul Financial.
The website is public, with more features once you log in:
