Urb-it has today announced that it is rolling out last mile delivery services for a share of Zara’s online orders in in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bristol, Paris and Barcelona.
Due to the increased demand from the partnership with Inditex (Zara’s parent company) and the new partnership with Evri (previously Hermes), announced on December 13, 2022, as well as beneficial pricing negotiations with existing customers, Urb-it expects its Net sales to exceed its previously communicated financial target for Q4 2022.
As a result, Net sales for Q4 2022 are preliminarily estimated to total SEK 14 million which exceeds the previously announced target of SEK 11.5 million.
Urb-it announced its expansion into the Spanish market on January 12, 2022. To meet the increased demand mainly in Spain as a result of its partnership with Inditex, Urb-it will bear additional costs during Q4 2022.
Urb-it finds that this progress increases the likelihood for Urb-it to reach its previously communicated financial targets for the period 2023 – 2027, which remain unchanged.
Urb-it will publish the interim report for the fourth quarter on February 28, 2022.
