Demand for white-glove, heavy goods delivery explodes amid continued supply chain disruption
NEEDHAM, Mass., Feb. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Deliveright, the leading white-glove, final-mile digital delivery platform, today announced record results for 2021, with more than 100% year-over-year growth in revenue. The company’s substantial momentum is fueled by Grasshopper, Deliveright’s proprietary AI solution for automating complicated supply chain problems. The ability to solve fulfillment, logistics, and final mile delivery for heavy goods, such as furniture, has become a differentiating factor for e-commerce merchants throughout the last year, increasing demand for Deliveright’s technology and services.
In 2021, Deliveright added more than 450 new customers and doubled its employee headcount. The company added 14 new dedicated freight lanes to accommodate customer growth, broadening its reach, reducing costs, and decreasing inefficiencies like multiple stops during transit.
Notably, Deliveright extended its network to the Canadian market, addressing the demand for final-mile support with its patented delivery platform, Grasshopper. The company also cut the ribbon on a new technology center in Israel, naming industry veteran Haim Haviv its chief technology officer (CTO). Haviv succeeds Ori Anavim, Deliveright’s co-founder and original CTO, now chief operating officer, overseeing the company’s continued expansion.
“The supply chain is more stressed than ever, and merchants can no longer rely on traditional delivery processes to seamlessly manage fulfillment,” said Doug Ladden, Deliveright CEO. “Our customers need technology combined with personalized, high-touch service to help them meet expectations in a market where the baseline is set by the tech giants of the industry.”
In May, Deliveright scaled its business by establishing a key partnership with Shopify, a leading e-commerce platform. Shopify merchants shipping heavy goods can now leverage the Grasshopper platform to manage logistics and final-mile deliveries anywhere in the U.S.
Deliveright grew its customer base in 2021, joining forces with key industry players, including Downstream Logistics, Blueprint Logistics, and RPM Delivery Service. With Deliveright’s technology, the companies can streamline delivery management and logistics for their customers. These integrations pave the way for more strategic partnerships in 2022.
