Australia’s leading on-demand, last-mile delivery company, Sherpa has introduced modifications to its app to streamline the delivery process for customers with the Shipr integration plugin allowing current and future Shipr clients to access Sherpa delivery services at the click of a button.

The Shipr integration is among the first of many new shipping middleware integrations for online customers as they finalise their shopping carts with the choice of same-day or one-hour shopping options, as well as shipping within three days or seven days.

Commenting on the announcement, Sherpa CEO, Duncan Brett said it’s about giving customers the choice of fulfillment and letting them decide how long they want to wait from ordering, to having the product in their hands.

“This is another vital step in disruptor technology that is clearly here to stay. We know that 80% of online shoppers want same-day delivery. Having the option of faster shipping – whether it be same-day or within the hour – is frankly what online shoppers are demanding.

“This is the new standard in online customer service and an important part of the online fulfilment revolution, where retailers with bricks and mortar footprints are transforming their stores into mini-DCs and able to dispatch online orders from stores to customers’ doors in hours rather than days or weeks.”

For Shipr, it’s a natural extension of meeting the changing demands of their customers, according to founder and CEO, Fadi Mubarak.

“Our clients need to offer their customers all the fulfillment options at the press of a button. We have partnered with Sherpa because they are the biggest and best in on-demand, same day, fast delivery. This is an exciting next step and first of its kind for Shipr,” he said.
