Postal Patrol is a company determined to keep packages and mail safe from theft. In order to do so, we have designed the Postal Pro, a residential, secure locking, wireless mailbox. With the exponential growth of e-commerce sales, it is estimated that over 90% of all commercial transactions will be conducted online by 2025. While this shift is more obvious due to the convenience of purchasing from the tap of a button, one question still remains: How do you keep packages safe after they are delivered? According to a survey conducted by Xfinity Home, 30% of American’s have experienced their delivered packages being stolen from their doorstep or mailbox. This epidemic of stolen packages has been rising simultaneously with the rise of e-commerce sales, and nobody seems to have a solution to keep packages safe... until now. Postal Patrol is aiming to dominate the upcoming industry of secure, wireless mailboxes. We plan on branching out to the upper-class and lower-class with alternate models of the Postal Pro with the Postal Premium (a more luxurious model) and Postal Pod (a more economically friendly model) respectively.
