Zapiet, the Shopify app developer of delivery and order management solutions, has recently formed a strategic partnership with Stuart, a tech logistics company that has transformed last-mile delivery in urban areas. Our collaboration aims to revolutionize the store-to-door delivery model for Shopify merchants across six countries and 127 cities in Europe, namely the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Poland.
With online retail purchases projected to reach 24% by 2026, as reported by Forbes, customers increasingly expect convenient and swift delivery options for their purchases. According to Metapack, 26.6% of shoppers prioritize speedy delivery when shopping online, while 84% express concerns about packages not arriving on time.
Together with Stuart, we cover Shopify merchants by offering a seamless solution that handles order management, scheduling, and direct delivery from your Shopify stores, eliminating the need for separate delivery management systems.
Now, our merchants can provide both express and scheduled delivery options (on-demand, same-day, or next-day). With Stuart’s impressive pickup ready time of just 20 minutes, and an average delivery time of one hour, they can delight customers and encourage them to choose their store repeatedly.
Sustainability is another crucial aspect that we consider, and Stuart shares our commitment here. Stuart prioritizes sustainability by offering bike transportation whenever suitable, considering the climate and order requirements.
Andy Cargill, CEO and Founder of Zapiet, comments, "since the beginning of Zapiet, I have consistently strived to deliver feature-rich apps at a price point that maximizes value for all merchants, ranging from small businesses to enterprises. This forthcoming integration further reinforces our commitment to providing the best delivery solutions for Shopify merchants."
“Stuart’s partnership with Zapiet is an exciting step forward in supporting online merchants to make their digital transition,” explains John Gillan, General Manager of Stuart in the UK. "Zapiet and Stuart share the same goals of connecting businesses, and empowering merchants through delivery, so this was a very natural collaboration. We look forward to combining our efforts to deliver higher impact and value.”
This collaboration between Zapiet and Stuart ensures fast and efficient delivery for Shopify merchants as well as promotes sustainability across Europe. Having the fully packed delivery solution at their fingertips, merchants can now focus on delivering a seamless shopping experience to the customers and expanding their businesses.
