Nimber wins Friday Ad gig

P2P delivery company Nimber has announced that it is now the official delivery partner for the free classified ad newspaper Friday Ad.

Friday Ad was established in the US in 1975 but went to the UK in 1994. The company says on its website, “Today over 362,000 ads are placed online each week, attracting a total of 2.3 million visitors per year.”

The Nimber website announced the tie up in a blog that said, “This will greatly grow our community of senders and provide countless tasks for bringers to pick up on their travels. Friday boasts 2.4 million visitors per month with over 300,000 ads live on the site. Now, all of them will be available for delivery.

“Just like we learned when we partnered with in Norway, having Nimber as a partner helps make the country smaller and gives people the access to items that they wouldn’t otherwise have.”

Nimber is a peer to peer (P2P) delivery network. People can have their goods delivered to someone who happens to be heading in the same direction as the parcels. Succinctly, Nimber describes this as a “collaborative peer-to-peer service that connects people who need to send something from one place to another with people going that way anyway”.

Nimber started its operations in Norway and has since expanded its operations into the UK in 2015. Its work with Friday Ad should significantly improve its reach and visibility in the UK, with the popularity of its newspaper client helping carry it forward.
