Urb-it, the rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, today announces rolling out last mile delivery services with Evri, a leading UK delivery network.

The UK delivery industry grew from 1.7 billion parcels in 2013 to 4.2 billion parcels in 2021. The market is estimated to be worth around £ 13 billion. In this market, Evri is offered as the delivery service by 49 of the 100 largest UK online retailers, servicing retailers like Next, ASOS, Missguided, Debenhams, and John Lewis.

The collaboration between Evri and Urb-it will commence in Manchester and Liverpool, cities where Urb-it is already operating.

Urb-it’s customer-centric last mile sustainable delivery services, conducted exclusively by its couriers on its e-cargo bike fleet across Europe, significantly reduce last mile C02 emissions, urban congestion, and air pollution. Urb-it is B Corp certified, committed to maintaining the highest standard of environmental performance, social governance, public transparency, and legal accountability.

Kevin Kviblad, CEO of Urb-it, comments:

“We are delighted to work with Evri to sustainably deliver its products to their customers in the UK. We continue to execute on our strategy, growing and building high volume density in our markets. Evri has high ambitions for improving its sustainability strategy, and we’re pleased to be able to partner on making our industry better and our cities healthier and more liveable.”
