Sorted, Manchester delivery firm, hits £1bn milestone

Sorted, the Manchester delivery technology firm, said on Monday it has reached a major milestone after the value of goods it has shipped to date reached the £1 billion mark.

The milestone comes at the end of a year of rapid expansion for the tech firm which has seen its client base surge 200%.

“Among marquee global retailers who now trust Sorted’s industry-leading SAAS technology to power growth is fashion giant ASOS,” said Sorted.

“As part of their global expansion strategy they have adopted Sorted’s secure, scalable software to improve the customer experience and provide major cost-savings. 

“The partnership sees Sorted run a large percentage of ASOS’s distribution centre delivery management in the UK – allowing them to further scale without friction …

“Leading British lifestyle brand Mulberry and DIY chain Homebase can now also be revealed as the latest client wins for the business …

“Since taking on its first major clients just three years ago Sorted has become a global delivery experience powerhouse, shipping goods to the value of £1.3 billion to 171 countries worldwide.”

David Grimes, founder and CEO at Sorted, 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 £1 billion 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.”
