Ex-Deliveroo executive Jack Green and former Cloudkitchen executive Brandon Neman have introduced their new ecommerce delivery platform Bodo, which is designed to transform the sector with customer-centric one hour and same day sustainable delivery.
With nearly half (46%) of consumers abandoning their shopping carts if delivery waits are too long, Bodo works to tackle this issue for brands with its plug-in at checkout. It enables businesses to better service their customers, whilst tackling the growing environmental concern from consumers over how their goods are being delivered.
“You can think of Bodo as Amazon Prime for Direct-to-Consumer brands”, said Jack Green, co-founder of Bodo. “Ecommerce brands spend so much time and effort building their native channel, Bodo allows them to offer a rapid, sustainable delivery experience without sacrificing crucial customer data and control to Amazon or an equivalent marketplace.”
Following a successful launch of the platform earlier this year, Bodo has announced a US$2.3m seed round. The funding will be used to broaden Bodo’s technology offering and expand their network of micro-fulfilment hubs across major cities, allowing the platform to service a bigger customer community and expand its brand partnerships.
Bodo added with 51% of consumers conscious of the environmental impact of ecommerce, it operates a network of micro-fulfilment hubs that store products in dense neighbourhoods, enabling rapid and sustainable deliveries. It is setting new standards for on-demand delivery in response to growing environmental consciousness and is working with the eco-first delivery partner Stuart to bring customers their goods in a guilt-free one-hour or same-day delivery experience.
Additionally, Bodo offers a simple integration plug-in to ecommerce platforms including Shopify, Salesforce, WooCommerce, Magento, and others. They are currently working with mission-aligned brands including market-leading CBD brand, TRIP, Lucky Saint low alc beer, celebrity favourite AU Vodka, Beavertown and popular sustainable toothbrush brand, SURI, as well as apparel brands like Underdays and Madhappy.
