Beware Of Package Thieves This Holiday Season

Thieves swiping packages directly from the doorstep of homes is a growing problem and it’s something a San Francisco tech startup is trying to stop.

With holiday shopping season starting soon, more people than ever will likely turn to online retailers, but that comes with some problems. Actually getting those deliveries is something companies are still trying to solve.

Package theft happens year round, but more frequently around the holidays — all those gifts left on doorsteps are one huge gift to thieves.

The root of the problem is simple. The Post Office and the shipping carriers mainly deliver during the day, a time when most people are supposed to be at work. In San Francisco, startups are trying to come to the rescue.

“I always felt like I was being punished by the current delivery system for having a full time job,” said Zander Adell, Doorman co-founder. “And the question was why can’t this be delivered when I’m actually home?”
