· A new omnichannel logistics partnership solution for retail brands
· Improves the speed and convenience of fulfilment from store to customers, sustainably
Urb-it, a rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, is pleased to announce it has entered into a strategic partnership with StoreShippers, the world’s largest sustainable ship-from-store network.
StoreShippers is the leading solution in fast and sustainable deliveries for retailers globally. It supports omnichannel logistics through its platform enabling sales optimisation across channels to offer customers goods conveniently. Working with global clients, including Nespresso and Rituals, StoreShippers’ technology identifies the best delivery solution for customers ordering goods directly from the store. It operates today in nine countries across Europe and in the US.
StoreShippers’ focus on innovating omnichannel logistics is aligned with Urb-it’s focus to enable retailers to improve the speed and convenience of product fulfilment directly from stores to their customers, sustainably. Urb-it’s couriers provide last mile delivery services exclusively on foot, bike or with its e-cargo-bike fleet - reducing air pollution, noise pollution and congestion, while providing a premium delivery service that exceeds customer expectations.
Urb-it will be initially supporting StoreShippers’ clients in London, with opportunities to expand in urban locations across StoreShippers’ network of national and global brands. Urb-it currently operates in nine cities across the UK and France and is planning to expand in new cities and national markets across Europe.
Kevin Kviblad, CEO of Urb-it said:
“I am delighted that we are expanding our client reach through this partnership with StoreShippers - a similar fast growth, customer-centric and sustainable brand. Its innovative platform offers clients globally fast and convenient direct fulfilment from store for their customers, so we are delighted to be a strategic partner. We look forward to working with StoreShippers and their clients to meet the increasing demands for both convenient and sustainable deliveries."
Pieter Paul van den Hoven, Founder & CEO of StoreShippers said:
“Sustainability is at the core of our offering, so we are delighted to partner with Urb-it, who not only provide customer-centric sustainable deliveries but are also committed to creating a positive impact on society and the environment. We look forward to the mutual growth opportunities ahead.”
