A Little History About LaserShip

1986: Laser Courier is Founded

Remember the ‘Domino’s 30 minutes or it’s free’ campaign that helped catapult the pizza chain to success? When LaserShip (previously Laser Courier) was founded in 1986, a few friends set out to be the best document delivery business in the Washington, DC metro area. To stand out amongst its competitors in a highly-fragmented industry, Laser Courier appealed to businesses with a similar ‘15-minute call-to-pick-up’ campaign, accomplished by having delivery drivers strategically located throughout the city and poised for action. Speed and unparalleled service would contribute to LaserShip’s success for many years to come.

1999: Barnes & Noble Becomes LaserShip’s First E-Commerce Customer

Laser Courier unveiled lasership.com and began doing business as LaserShip to explore last-mile deliveries for this thing called e-commerce during the dot-com boom. With a new name and online business in tow, LaserShip set out to sign on Barnes & Noble as its very first e-commerce customer to provide last-mile book deliveries in New York City. Although LaserShip maintains its cornerstone business delivery services until today, LaserShip decided to shift gears and focus its growth in e-commerce. Today, Barnes & Noble is still a LaserShip customer. The rest is history.

2000: LaserShip Launches Global Critical Delivery Division

LaserShip expanded its service offerings by starting its Global Critical Delivery (GCD) division, providing air and ground delivery solutions for critical aviation and medical shipments. While LaserShip’s e-commerce and business deliveries are limited to the US, the GCD division provides delivery solutions around the world. In 2018, the GCD team made over 2,500 life-saving organ deliveries and helped get more than 14,000 airplanes off the ground, back in the air, and to their final destinations.

2014-Present: LaserShip Acquires Prestige Delivery Systems

In 2014, LaserShip acquired Cleveland-based Prestige Delivery Systems, nearly doubling the company’s footprint and team. Today, LaserShip’s last-mile ground delivery network consists of more than 60 distribution centers and 4 sort centers across 23 states that reach over 140 million consumers in the US. LaserShip has evolved into a leading provider of same-day and next-day delivery services in the Eastern and Midwest U.S. for e-commerce and product-supply businesses, including some of the largest retailers in the world.
