Delivery tech firm Sorted is toasting a landmark year after the value of goods it has shipped to date reached the £1 billion mark.

The milestone comes at the end of a record 12 months of rapid expansion for the pioneering tech firm which has seen its client base surge by 200 per cent.

Fashion giant ASOS is now among the global retailers using Sorted’s SaaS technology to improve the customer experience and provide major cost-savings.

The partnership sees Sorted run a large percentage of ASOS’s distribution centre delivery management in the UK – allowing them to further scale without friction.

By the end of the year Sorted will have helped ASOS ship over ten million parcels in just 10 months.

Leading British lifestyle brand Mulberry and DIY chain Homebase can now also be revealed as the latest client wins for the business.

Mulberry, which operates 120 stores in 20 countries, chose Sorted to help drive international growth and improve web conversions. It has deployed SortedPRO to unify its order processing system and upgrade its delivery proposition with more carriers and services.

Homebase has adopted Sorted’s tech to power its direct eCommere orders – fulfilling its requirements of improving shipping, warehouse efficiency and the customer experience.

Since taking on its first major clients three years ago Sorted has shipped goods to the value of £1.3bn to 171 countries worldwide.

The recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping days saw record volumes – 66 per cent higher than the previous week – going through the platform.

“We’ve had a tremendous 2019 at Sorted,” said founder and CEO David Grimes. “Adding ASOS to our ever-expanding roster of clients alongside the likes of Missguided, Farfetch, French Connection and FatFace shows that our delivery technology is trusted by some of the planet’s biggest retailers.

“Consumer expectations have never been higher than they are now. And by constantly refining and driving innovation in the delivery experience sector we are becoming retailers’ secret weapon of choice.

“Hitting the £1billion milestone of goods shipped is a great testament to the drive and dedication of our workforce who are constantly striving to ensure Sorted remain best in class.”
