Jisp forges last-mile delivery partnership

All-in-one shopping app Jisp has teamed up with Zoom 1hr Delivery to provide retailers with a fleet of home delivery drivers.

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 vehicles nationwide, has been operating primarily in the 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.

Ilann Hepworth, MD of Jisp, said: “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 whilst continuing building our reputations as retailer-first convenience service on the market.”

Zoom 1hr Delivery currently serves more than 440 retailers and is set to add 300 Co-op stores by the end of September 2021. Since going live, it has processed over 280,000 orders through the platform.

Kevin Williams, CEO of Zoom 1hr Delivery, said: “Jisp shares our vision of empowering independent businesses with a dynamic delivery solution. By marrying their 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.”
