Though most routine packages in Edge City are delivered via drone, a thriving courier industry runs through all parts of the city. These small organizations specialize in sensitive data or materials that could be compromised if sent through traditional channels - encrypted hard drives, classified materials, synthetic organs for transplant, etc. Most couriers come from a low-income background, and the only qualifications are physical quickness and routine radiothermal body scans. Companies usually provide couriers with a mode of transportation of some sort, which can be locked down and deactivated remotely if necessary. Some courier organizations operate within corporate campuses, while others are city-wide. Though it would appear that there are many and competition is fierce, most of these companies are owned by an umbrella organization traceable to either Zaibatsu Tech or Tryptych.
