Supply chain scale-up in the spotlight: Quiqup

Quick local delivery is increasingly becoming the norm due to the growth of e-commerce and mobile commerce as well as the behaviour and expectations of millennials. Quiqup, which today employs 130 people, was founded in September 2014 in London, UK, to address precisely this issue. It offers ‘Logistics as a Service’: fast on-demand, same-day and custom deliveries for businesses of all sizes, with convenient tech-enabled solutions built around consumers’ busy urban lives.

Quiqup aims to create a highly efficient – and therefore cost-effective and sustainable – approach to last mile logistics combined with an amazing doorstep experience. The company’s rapid turnaround times help customers to get products from their warehouse or store to the consumer’s door in record time.

The consumer-focused delivery experience includes helpful customer support available at all times, live tracking (for retailers and consumers) as standard and a multi-modal fleet of 3,000-plus professional couriers. Everything is underpinned by the scale-up’s industry-leading technology, from intuitive online dashboards for retailers through to urban route optimization for efficiency and punctuality.

High-profile customers

Quiqup is particularly targeting sizeable players in the retail industry and already serves a number of high-profile customers like Tesco, Sephora, L’Occitane, Zara Home and Massimo Dutti. It has recently raised extra capital for Middle East expansion.
