Founded in 2008, Shutl promises to bring delivery up to speed by letting shoppers get what they want, when they want. The service connects retailers to local same-day courier companies, enabling online and in-store customers to receive their shopping in as little as 90 minutes or choose a convenient 1-hour delivery window.
Shutl currently holds the record for the world’s fastest e-commerce delivery; a shopper taking receipt of their goods within 15 minutes of checking out online. The company operates 24/7 in 50+ towns and cities across the UK, with a virtual fleet totalling thousands of couriers already completing tens of thousands of deliveries every day. Shutl has won a load of awards and was recently ranked the UK’s hottest startup in the Startups 100. It counts Argos, Aurora Fashions, Karen Millen, Maplin and Style-Passport amongst its partners alongside a host of smaller retailers.
