Same-day delivery business Gophr today announced its integration with global ecommerce delivery technology leader Metapack, empowering online retailers in the UK with faster and more sustainable deliveries.
Now live on Metapack’s global delivery management platform, Gophr, which has one of the largest same-day delivery networks in the UK, makes it simple for ecommerce and omnichannel retailers to offer same-day delivery alongside their existing delivery options. Specifically, this new integration makes it easy for more retailers to offer quick, precise and trackable deliveries for customers in towns and cities across the UK.
The partnership comes as consumers look for more shipping choices, and retailers leverage different shipping options as a competitive advantage for a generation of shoppers who desire speed, convenience and ease. Metapack’s recent Ecommerce Delivery Benchmark Report 2022 reveals that 37.5% of UK shoppers state that speed of delivery is the most important factor when choosing to buy online.
Tom Forbes, SVP of Carriers at Metapack, comments: “Same-day delivery is becoming a key element of ecommerce, particularly in urban centres where people expect to get products greener, quicker and more conveniently than ever before. Gophr has built an exciting business based around same-day delivery across the UK and managing increasing consumer expectations around delivery experience.”
Seb Robert, CEO of Gophr, adds: “Metapack is the market leader in delivery technology and we’re keen to help expand the range of options available to ecommerce and omnichannel businesses by adding same-day deliveries. I believe this is an important partnership for the UK’s ecommerce ecosystem, as it enables retailers to combine speed, convenience and sustainability when it comes to home delivery. It ticks all the boxes for a consumer when it comes to delivery.”
