Fashion retailer Asos has partnered with sustainable delivery firm HIVED to complete its Instant same-day delivery orders in Greater London.
“Through Asos Instant, customers can place an order during the day and receive it to their door that evening – vital for those last-minute purchases that just can’t wait,” explained Adam Scholes, director of delivery solutions at Asos.
“It’s great to be launching this new partnership with HIVED for Asos Instant deliveries into Greater London, as we continue our journey to reduce emissions from our operations.”
HIVED operate an entirely electric fleet of vans, cars and bikes and offer same-day, next-day and two-day shipping options to all of Greater London. With a 99.99% on-time delivery rate and a 99% first-time success rate, the sustainable logistics start-up aim to offer consumers the best possible delivery experience.
Murvah Iqbal, co-CEO at HIVED, added: “We have successfully scaled our parcel delivery network to support large enterprises focusing their delivery strategy on customer service and sustainability goals. Asos is one of the largest global fashion retailers, and it is fantastic to see their commitment to innovative solutions.”
In September, the zero-emission logistics company gained support from Maersk Growth, the venture arm of the Danish shipping company. The investment will help the London-based firm to continue decarbonising last mile delivery.
“Given the explosion of ecommerce and deliveries in recent years, we need to scale delivery solutions that improve environmental issues, such as vehicle emissions and resulting air pollution,” said Gemma Neal, head of product at HIVED.
“We’re delighted that HIVED can offer large enterprises a fantastic parcel delivery experience for their consumers.”
