Nimber goes last mile with a smile
Nimber is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with Norway’s largest meat, eggand poultry producer, Nortura, to provide direct deliveries to customers in the Oslo region by tapping into its “going your way anyway” crowd delivery platform.
"This is our first move in to the attractive and growing “last mile” delivery space where traditional retailers need new delivery models to provide more cost effective, convenient and sustainable delivery solutions", notes Ari Kestin, Nimber's CEO.
"Nimber’s DNA has always been about community. We utilize existing and spare capacity to create the most convenient and sustainable delivery solution. Today, we are embarking on the next phase by matching our amazing community of bringers with retailers", Kestin says.
"In this project (Minkiosk), it has been very important for us to find new, innovative, smart and more sustainable delivery solutions. In Nimber, we found what we were looking for”, says Kristine Pollen Briså, Director of innovation and sales for New Business in Nortura.
"Traditional delivery models are fine, but they are often not a match for the modern-day retailer. Nimber’s flexible, social and green delivery solution allows Nortura and other retailers to go a step further to meet customer expectations”, says Kestin.
Since the launch of the service in 2013, Nimber has helped consumers deliver more than 25,000 items. From the perfect couch to that forgotten passport. Between cities and within. Nimber has successfully built a vibrant delivery marketplace in its home market in Norway, by matching deliveries with everyday people going that way, anyway. Since moving to London and launching the service there in Q4 2015 and having partnered with leading classifieds in both Norway and UK, Nimber passed the 100,000-community mark last year. The solution is suitable in a wide array of delivery verticals. Nimber’s first port of call is to address the need to solve non-traditional (bulky, heavy or hard to package) deliveries across metropolitan areas.
Nimber is a collaborative service for deliveries – a marketplace, matching delivery needs with spare capacity. The service has become a preferred logistics partner by leading e-commerce providers in home market Norway.
