Jisp, an award-winning convenience shopping app, is partnering with Zoom 1hr Delivery to provide retailers with a fleet of drivers in the last mile fulfilment initiative. Store owners will now be able to have their products delivered straight to their customers without having to leave the shop, hire new drivers or purchase vehicles.
Zoom 1hr Delivery, that has a driver fleet of more than 300 nationwide, has been operating primarily in West Midlands and Wales; however, following Jisp’s partnerships with Bestway and Nisa as well as Zoom’s expansion with Co-op, both companies are in talks to extend their reach and benefit thousands of stores nationwide.
Ilann Hepworth, MD of Jisp, said: “I am really thrilled about this announcement. Last mile delivery has always been the missing link in our proposition as many retailers either didn’t have enough staff, time or vehicles to truly benefit from providing Jisp’s Home Delivery service. With Zoom’s impressive fleet of cars and driver portfolio, we are looking to rapidly grow store numbers while continuing building our reputations as retailer-first convenience service on the market.”
Zoom 1hr Delivery serves more than 440 retailers and is set to bring in 300 Co-op stores by the end of September 2021. Since going live, they have processed over 280,000 orders through the platform.
Kevin Williams, CEO of Zoom 1hr Delivery, said: “We are excited to embark on a brand-new partnership with Jisp. Jisp shares our vision of empowering independent businesses with a dynamic delivery solution. By marrying its slick technology with our operations and infrastructure across the UK, we will be able to better serve retail and food businesses, and vastly improve our own customers’ experience. We believe this new collaboration will be an unstoppable force in the delivery sector.”
