Achievement follows ASOS client-win and record year for pioneering Manchester delivery tech firm.

16.12.19 – Manchester, UK – Sorted, the global delivery experience platform, is toasting a landmark year after the value of goods it has shipped to date reached the £1billion mark.

The milestone comes at the end of a record twelve months of rapid expansion for the pioneering tech firm who have seen their client base surge by 200%.

Among marquee global retailers who now trust Sorted’s industry-leading SAAS technology to power growth is fashion giant ASOS.

As part of their global expansion strategy they have adopted Sorted’s secure, scalable software 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, since going live in February.

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 their international growth and improve web conversions. They have deployed SortedPRO to unify their order processing system and dramatically upgrade their delivery proposition with more carriers and services.

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

Since taking on its first major clients just three years ago Sorted has become a global delivery experience powerhouse, shipping goods to the value of £1.3billion to 171 countries worldwide.

The recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping days saw record volumes - 66% higher than the previous week - going through the platform - with no dip in service for clients.

In total, the first week of December this year saw parcel volumes smash the record of previous years by up to 97%.

Hailed by GP Bullhound as one of the UK’s fastest-scaling tech firms, the past twelve months have also seen Sorted scoop key industry accolades including Best E-Commerce Business at the inaugural MEN Tech Awards over the summer alongside Best E-Commerce Platform at the Northern E-Commerce Awards last month.

A team of their crack developers also scooped glory at the recent Hack Manchester event by developing an SMS transport assistant in 24 hours, to help people with disabilities navigate the local rail network.

David Grimes, Founder and CEO at Sorted, said: “We’ve had a tremendous 2019 at Sorted.

“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.”
