Nimber reveals 2014 growth
Nimber, the community delivery service, has hit an all-important milestone by surpassing the 30,000 user mark. The company has continued its growth on the strength of the Scandinavian market and continues to grow as evidenced by a 425% increase in delivery requests from 2013 to 2014. Nimber has also recently announced a plan to expand its service into the United Kingdom this Spring.
“We are very excited to take the unbelievable momentum we are seeing in Norway and carry that with us into the UK. Our community is our backbone, it’s what makes us go and we are going very well,” said CEO Ari Kestin.
The Nimber team will launch in UK imminently, and are working on revamped applications for both iOS and Android that should hit the UK market later this spring.
In addition to the numbers above, Nimber has also released the information that their Bringers travelled an astonishing 1.7 million km last year taking deliveries all over Scandinavia.
“By having deliveries go with people already heading that way we saved an estimated 577 tonnes worth of CO2 emissions. That’s extraordinary and I can’t wait to see the numbers next year with our continued growth and the addition of the UK market,” Kestin added.
Nimber has successfully built a vibrant delivery marketplace in tiny home market Norway, and a couple of weeks after it's global release now has a community of 23,000, signed-up from almost 70 countries around the world.
Nimber is a community delivery solution that connects people who need to send something with someone going that way, anyway. By working together as a community we can make shipping easier, sustainable, cost-effective and friendly. Nimber is the community that delivers.
The service has become a preferred logistics partner by leading e-commerce providers in the home market of Norway.
