Metapack, a global leader in e-commerce delivery technology, announces that HIVED has joined its Delivery Manager Platform, enabling retailers across the UK to offer their consumers high-quality, zero emission delivery at affordable prices.
The parcel delivery service and startup, HIVED, has redeveloped the process of getting a parcel from the warehouse to the front door from the ground up. With a 100% electrified fleet, nationwide collection, and same-day, next-day and two-day delivery options, HIVED is offering a decarbonised alternative without compromising affordability or convenience.
Today, freight and deliveries account for a quarter of London’s total carbon emissions from transport. With the explosion in parcel volume due to the rise of e-commerce, the number of parcels delivered in London is expected to double by 2030.
Murvah Iqbal, CEO and co-founder at HIVED, commented:
“HIVED was founded to reinvent the parcel industry with tech, data, vertical integration and process innovation. Since our first deliveries in December 2020, we’ve saved thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions and are working with hundreds of major retailers. What keeps us motivated is that we can push and challenge the industry, knowing that we’re doing the right thing for both the planet and people.”
Gemma Neal, Head of Growth at HIVED, added:
“Working together with Metapack is a great opportunity for us to reach a wider range of retailers with our service. The integration means a lot to us and we’re extremely happy to finally set this live.”
David Randall, Strategic Partnership Director at Metapack said:
“As consumers become more aware of the carbon footprint of their deliveries, it’s now more important than ever for retailers to consider offering more sustainable delivery options. Our research recently revealed that almost 75% of online shoppers would consider measures to make deliveries more sustainable. We’re thrilled to have HIVED join our Delivery Manager platform, as we look to provide more retailers with the opportunity to implement zero emission deliveries.”
