Amazon has made Evri an accredited seller-fulfilled Prime carrier to deliver parcels on behalf of all merchants on the e-commerce company’s website.
This Prime collaboration will enable about 85,000 UK SMEs on the Amazon store to select Evri as their delivery provider across Prime and non-Prime orders. Evri received accreditation for the Amazon Prime service by completing a six-week trial, during which it consistently met or surpassed Amazon’s requirement to deliver parcels to stringent standards. A key requirement of the trial was that Evri could collect the parcels after 4:30pm from Monday to Friday and after 12:30pm on Saturday from merchants within the UK, to then deliver to recipients the next day, anywhere in the country.
David Saenz, e-commerce director at Evri, said, “This new collaboration with Amazon Prime is an important milestone for Evri. It demonstrates, once again, that Evri is a parcel industry disruptor that is helping to bring down the cost of delivery for consumers and businesses, and offering a fast, reliable and cost-effective service to compete with the UK’s traditional carriers.
“Evri has always been committed to supporting businesses, big and small, and Amazon’s website is a great way to demonstrate – at the highest level – what we can help them achieve.”
The accreditation by Amazon Prime reflects Evri’s commitment to investing in technology, fulfillment and customer service, as well as reinforcing Evri’s high service performance and network scale domestically and abroad, given that it delivers more than 700 million parcels each year.
