Manchester ‘global delivery experience platform’ Sorted says it has shipped £1 billion worth of goods since launching in 2010.

The milestone comes at the end of a record 12 months in which fashion giant ASOS signed a deal for Sorted to run a large percentage of its distribution centre delivery management in the UK.

By the end of the year, Sorted will have helped ASOS ship more than 10 million parcels since going live in February. Lifestyle brand Mulberry and DIY chain Homebase are other major client wins for the business.

Since taking on its first major clients three years ago, Sorted has shipped goods to the value of £1.3bn to 171 countries.

Founder and CEO David Grimes said: “We’ve had a tremendous 2019 at Sorted. Adding ASOS to our ever-expanding roster of clients alongside the likes of Missguided, Farfetch, French Connection and FatFace shows that our delivery technology is trusted by some of the planet’s biggest retailers.

“Consumer expectations have never been higher than they are now. And by constantly refining and driving innovation in the delivery experience sector we are becoming retailers’ secret weapon of choice.

“Hitting the £1bn milestone of goods shipped is a great testament to the drive and dedication of our workforce who are constantly striving to ensure Sorted remain best in class.”
