Urby aims at €100m revenues by 2025

La Groupe la Poste owned first- and last-mile delivery company Urby has announced plans to hit revenues of €100 million by 2025.

Urby has taken one 100 new staff in 2022 and opened two new hubs this year as well, taking its national reach in France to 23 towns and cities.

“Our ambition is to become the leader in urban logistics services in urban areas with more than 150,000 inhabitants,” says Frédéric Delaval, Chairman of the Urby network.           

Urby has expanded into two-person delivery and also taking goods between shops and retailers’ drive-through locations. It is planning to offer installation and collection of goods as well as pallet-handling, waste collection and even an XL pick-up point solution.

La Poste has invested €20 million in the next few years into a low-emissions fleet of 240 vehicles that range from 3.5-tonners and HGVs. These include combustion engine vehicles operating on NGV, and BioNGV as battery electric vehicles.
