London and Paris Metapack Stuart Same Day service launched
A new Metapack Stuart partnership is enabling retailers in London and Paris to offer same day delivery services. With the Coronavirus pandemic seeing ever more local lock downs and restrictions on our way of life, ever more consumers will be looking for convenient home delivery rather than popping to the shops.
Now live on Metapack’s global delivery management platform, the Metapack Stuart service, Stuart Today, allows retailers to tap into Stuart’s hub network to speed up and optimise their delivery offerings for end customers. This partnership has been launched to tackle today’s fast evolving retail landscape, which has seen customers rely more and more on the online shopping experience.
“In today’s competitive retail climate, with more people shopping online than ever before, retailers need to ensure they’re able to satisfy consumer desire for fast and convenient delivery options. Recent Metapack research highlights that in the UK and France, around 50% of consumers have bought goods from one retailer over another, because they provided more delivery options. Working together with Stuart, we’re able to help retailers service the changing needs of consumers and provider greater delivery experiences.”

Stuart’s solution aims to support retailers by allowing for a fast and precise delivery to consumers in urban areas, as well as by helping them manage excess ecommerce volumes. Stuart’s urban hub delivery solution helps retailers distribute their goods from centrally located urban micro fulfilment centres. Being in close proximity to the end consumer means orders can be delivered in under 24 hours and meet consumers’ growing expectations around fulfilment times. With 28% of consumers prioritising the speed of shipment and over 40% willing to pay for same-day delivery, the need for a same-day offering is an important differentiator for retailers in the current landscape.
“By empowering retailers with same-day delivery, we’re able to help them wow their end-customers with new, exciting delivery options. In the current landscape, fast and accurate delivery is more important than ever. Moreover, with 60% of consumers selecting retailers based on their delivery options at check out, we are excited to be working alongside Metapack to enable businesses to stand out from the crowd.”
