Urb-it integrates with Metapack to empower retailers with sustainable deliveries across Europe
Urb-it, the rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, today announces its integration with Metapack, a global leader in ecommerce delivery technology.
Urb-it provides market leading flexibility, reliability, and convenience through how customers can book, track, and receive their deliveries, sustainably. Now live on Metapack's Delivery Platform, this new Urb-it integration provides brands across Europe the ability to offer their ecommerce customers with an option for eco-friendly and efficient deliveries.
Metapack provides delivery management software to leading retailers, brands, and delivery partners across the world. 80% of the top 100 UK retailers and 1/3 of EU retailers use the Metapack platform. The Metapack platform integrates over 400 carriers and 4,900 delivery services - including Next Day, Click and Collect, Locker Boxes and International Delivery.
Kevin Kviblad, Urb-it CEO said:
"We are delighted to offer retailers integrated with Metapack access to our sustainable last mile delivery services. Our unique offering means that brands can offer their customers a truly customer centric and sustainable delivery option at the checkout - which is proven to increase conversion.
"We are proud to be available on the platform of one of the global leaders in ecommerce delivery technology, and we look forward to the growth opportunities this provides us as we look to partner with the world's leading retailers."
David Randall, Strategic Partnership Director, Metapack said:
"With sustainability becoming an increasingly decisive factor when it comes to consumer delivery preferences, it's important that retailers invest in providing greater green delivery options. We're excited to be partnering with Urb-it across Europe as we continue to offer more retailers with more options for sustainable delivery than ever before."
According to Metapack research, 32% of consumers value a sustainability delivery option at checkout more than factors such as cost and speed. Urb-it offers a 99% delivery success rate, over 95% on time rate and is 100% delivered by its couriers on its e-cargo bike fleet - which not only minimises air pollution, noise pollution and congestion, but is also faster than traditional delivery vehicles in city centres. Urb-it is a B Corp certified business, meaning it meets and have committed to the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance.
