The delivery company Douglas Express is adding another option to its network in Georgia’s southeast.
The delivery service will be in several neighborhoods along the Interstate 75 corridor starting in Springfield.
The Douglas Express delivery service has a fleet of three trucks with three trailers to deliver packages from a delivery point to an address in a home.
The vehicles will be available in metro Atlanta and parts of Georgia.
The company will offer delivery at least once a week starting at 7 a.m. to people who live in Springfields, DeKalb, De Witt and Fulton counties.
The service is available to anyone with a valid credit or debit card.
Douglas Express said it has already delivered in Atlanta, but that its Atlanta office has the capacity to deliver more deliveries.
It will begin in Springford on Saturday.
The trucks can pick up up packages in a few minutes or take up to 15 minutes to get to their destination.
Douglas has no plans to expand the service to other metro Atlanta neighborhoods, Douglas President and CEO Michael Linn said.
Douglas Express will have a limited fleet of delivery trucks.
Customers will have to pay extra for a pickup at the pickup location or a pick-up at the delivery site, Linn wrote in a blog post Thursday.
Douglas said it plans to add more locations in the coming months.
Douglass will be the third company to launch a delivery service in Georgia in less than a year.
A Georgia-based company called the Blue Ridge Express has also launched a delivery program in the metro Atlanta area.
