On-demand logistics specialists Stuart and online ordering platform Orderswift are working together to expand this reach to 34 cities and towns in the UK.
Orderswift is a white label hot food delivery platform for restaurants. Customers go to the restaurant’s website and order their food, and under the new arrangement will deliver food to the customer via Stuart.
The Orderswift system is cheaper than using integrated platforms such as Just Eat and Uber Eats thanks to the restaurant taking the delivery fee direct from the customer and not paying commission on orders. Instead they pay a monthly fee to the platform.
The new arrangement covers London, Brighton, Birmingham, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Bristol, Basildon, Cambridge, Cardiff, Chesterfield, Darlington, Derby, Exeter, Gillingham, Hull, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Northampton, Nottingham, Oxford, Plymouth, Reading, Sheffield, South Shields, Southampton, Sunderland, Swansea, Teeside, Wakefield and Warrington.
Orderswift co-founder Matt Gilbert says: “Direct delivery is flourishing in the UK. We’re excited that this partnership gives thousands of restaurants the opportunity to take their own delivery orders, strengthening relationships with their customers and giving them a significantly greater share of the profits from deliveries in the process. Our close working relationship with Stuart means that we have been able to create a turnkey solution that is getting restaurants live in a single day, which is incredible.”
Jonathan Jenssen, Stuart’s UK General Manager adds: “By leveraging the expertise of two first-class platforms we have built a solution that empowers restaurants to offer their customers a 360 solution, wowing them through multiple channels and remaining front of mind. This offering forms a synergy with marketplace solutions, allowing restaurants to tap into the full scale of their customer base. By working alongside Orderswift we want to help unlock every restaurant’s full potential.
