Online fashion retailer ASOS is using CitySprint to provide a “twilight” delivery service which allows customers to place orders until midnight for delivery the following day.
Orders received by midnight are collected by CitySprint from ASOS’ central distribution centre and delivered as normal between 6 pm and 9 pm the next day. The service costs £9.95.
Robert Muldoon, customer delivery manager at ASOS said: “We have developed a new shopping experience for our customers, which extends the time they can shop and still gives them the ability to receive their order the next day between 6pm and 9pm – seven days a week.
“This is the perfect solution for our customers who lead hectic lifestyles but also have a big appetite to shop. CitySprint’s creative solution is really helping us make a difference, allowing us to compete with the high street’s extended opening times.”
ASOS has launched the service in London, Leeds and Manchester and plans to extend it to Liverpool and Nottingham.
