Buckhead-based Roadie among finalists for MAC E3 Awards

The Metro Atlanta Chamber has announced its finalists for the 2018 Atlanta E3 Awards and among the list is Buckhead-based Roadie Inc., an “on-the-way” delivery startup.

Buckhead startup Roadie Inc., which recently expanded its partnership with Delta Air Lines Inc. to get delayed bags back to travelers faster, is a finalist for the Metro Atlanta Chamber’s E3 Awards.

The chamber’s E3 Awards celebrate the companies, organizations and people whose work innovates at the intersection of sustainability and commerce.

“This year’s finalists represent the best of our region’s efforts to advance business models that focus on sustainability,” said MAC President and CEO Hala Moddelmog. “Environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility are not only essential to our future but also an economic benefit to our metro area.”
