Urb-it, a rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, is pleased to announce that alternative fashion and lifestyle brand, KILLSTAR, has chosen Urb-it as its sustainable last mile delivery partner in the UK.

The partnership will initially launch in Glasgow and London, before being rolled out across other major UK cities, including Manchester and Birmingham.

Established in 2010, KILLSTAR is an alternative fashion and lifestyle brand with a vast product offering. With an eclectic mix of goth, punk rock, glam, and festival fashion, KILLSTAR has gained a worldwide following in pursuit of realizing the brand’s invitation for people to explore, become and celebrate who they are.

Urb-it partners with e-commerce brands to provide sustainable customer-centric last mile delivery services in Europe's largest cities on a fleet of e-cargo bikes. This not only directly reduces carbon emissions, congestion, noise and air pollution- but its employed couriers are also more efficient in city centres than traditional delivery vehicles.

 

Sébastien Potts, UK Country Manager, Urb-it said:

“At Urb-it we work with our e-commerce customers to provide the last mile sustainably, while aligning to their supply chain sustainability commitments and customer service expectations. Our services directly support our customer’s net zero or carbon reduction initiatives, and our employed couriers create their end of brand experience through their efficient delivery service. We look forward to working with KILLSTAR to bring sustainable delivery options to its customers based in UK cities.”

 

Chris Dugan, KILLSTAR said:

“The demand from customers for a sustainable delivery option at checkout continues to grow. Partnering with Urb-it means that we can offer sustainable deliveries via e-cargo bike to customers living in the largest cities in the UK. KILLSTAR is committed to reducing the impact of its operations on the environment, this partnership supports those efforts.”
