With the holidays quickly approaching, Shipt and Abercrombie & Fitch Co. are teaming up to expand the apparel and accessories retailer’s fulfillment capabilities. Shipt Driven – Shipt’s delivery-only, last-mile offering for retailers – will now be powering same-day deliveries from Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s own websites. The new service is available year-round across Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s entire U.S. store fleet, which includes more than 540 Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie kids, Hollister and Gilly Hicks locations.
“We’re thrilled to support Abercrombie & Fitch Co. throughout the holiday season and beyond,” said Rina Hurt, Chief Business Officer at Shipt. “With traditional parcel carriers struggling to keep up with demand, Shipt is the truly reliable, seven-day-a-week last-mile solution for retailers in the fourth quarter. Whether consumers are buying a sweater for a loved one or a new pair of jeans for themselves, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. customers can have confidence that gifts will arrive on time.”
“Same-day delivery supports our goals of meeting our customers where they are and delivering our product to them when and how they want it, particularly as we approach the holiday season,” said Larry Grischow, Executive Vice President, Supply Chain and Procurement at Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “We always aim to provide an excellent fulfillment experience for our customers that includes choice and fast delivery options. We're looking forward to partnering with Shipt to serve our customers across the U.S.”
Shipt Driven is a unique solution that allows retailers to offer same-day delivery to customers on their own websites, leveraging Shipt’s simplified API integrations with any front-end eCommerce solution. The retailer uses their own team to pick the goods, and a dependable Shipt Shopper retrieves the order and delivers it during the timeframe the customer requested.
