Last mile delivery specialist Stuart has partnering with ecommerce logistics start-up Bodo to offer sustainable, same day and instant deliveries across London.
The collaboration will enable ecommerce brands in the UK capital to provide their customers with more flexible and convenient delivery options, as consumer demand grows for rapid turnaround on items.
Stuart saw a 255% volume increase from October to December in 2022 in Bodo deliveries, with volumes for the first week of January 2023 amounting to almost double that of the whole of October.
Through their partnership, Stuart and Bodo aim to provide a broad range of fast and convenient delivery options for partner brands, helping to continue the growth trends seen at the end of last year and into 2023.
The hyperlocal deliveries provided will allow customers to access a precise 30 minute delivery, whilst the partnership will also enable a city-wide, same day service, using a fleet of 100% electric vans.
John Gillan, general manager of Stuart in the UK, said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Bodo to help retailers increase their delivery fulfilment levels and to provide an efficient end-to-end process for customers. Sustainability remains at the centre of all our decision making at Stuart, and we’re looking forward to continuing to drive this forward with Bodo to provide a bespoke delivery offering to end customers.”
Bodo already provides their integration service to brands such as TRIP CBD, Lucky Saint, Underdays, Nio Cocktails, Madhappy and HUX Health, and the partnership with Stuart is expected to see the brand portfolio expand even further.
Jack Green, co-founder of Bodo, added: “The decision to bring on Stuart as a partner was an easy one. As we strive to set new industry standards for sustainable on-demand delivery, we need operational partners who can constantly innovate in the space. As market leaders in both on-demand and same-day delivery, this partnership will allow us to better service brands using Bodo, whilst giving their customers rapid delivery that they can feel good about. We are excited to scale to more European markets with Stuart next year.”
