Go Quiver! Emission-free deliveries trial in London

Delphis Eco has launched a pilot scheme to trial emission-free same-day and next-day deliveries for its London business and retail customers.

As part of its ongoing ethos of continually looking at new ways to drive sustainability and lower emissions into its customer offer, the multi-award-winning manufacturer and eco-cleaning company has partnered with Quiver to offer fresh innovation as to how its products can reach customers, quickly and sustainably.

The trial will enable products to be delivered to its customers situated in 75% of all Greater London postcodes. Customers can opt for same day delivery at a cost from £5.99, or next day delivery at a cost from £3.99. Quiver, which got its name from Quick Delivery, uses only use human or electricity powered vehicles which range in size and include bicycles, e-bikes, e-cargo bikes, e-mopeds, e-cars, and e-vans.

Delphis Eco’s CEO and Founder, Mark Jankovich, said: “Fast delivery is increasingly becoming the expectation and the norm in both business and consumer markets. Quiver is really setting the standard for sustainable e-commerce delivery in London, with simple integrations, a clean customer interface and cutting-edge technology this is not only emissionless, but also fast, trackable and editable. We’re very excited to see what our customers think of this new offering, it’s cheaper and faster but also has clear environmental benefits, reducing pollution and both ours and our customer’s carbon footprint. We look forward to seeing the results of this trial. Further to successful outcomes from this trial, we will certainly be looking to incorporate this service into our forward delivery model on an ongoing basis. This is another way in which we are constantly interrogating our supply chain to find ways to reduce our impact on the environment, cut our own emissions, and improve the customer experience.”

Matthew Barrie, Founder of Quiver, added: "We're excited to have Delphis Eco on board trialling our delivery service and for their customers to be able to enjoy the Quiver delivery experience as we continue to set the standard for e-commerce delivery.”

The process for selecting a Quiver delivery is simple. When shopping online, customers in qualifying postcodes can select one of the two options for a Quiver delivery at checkout – same day or next day delivery. Customers can still opt for standard delivery.
