Bodo, the innovative same-day delivery service, is making significant strides with its expansion efforts, now reaching Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds. Collaborating with renowned brands such as Trip, Lucky Saint, Au Vodka, and Beavertown, Bodo’s approach involves a network of dark stores, enabling prompt and eco-friendly delivery of goods ordered from brands’ websites using third-party couriers.
After debuting in London in September of the previous year, Bodo rapidly extended its footprint by establishing additional dark stores in the capital. Co-founder Brandon Neman expressed enthusiasm about this growth, stating, “We are thrilled to expand Bodo’s sustainable same-day delivery services to more UK cities. This strategic expansion fuels local e-commerce growth by bringing quick, convenient, and emissionless delivery options to new brands and communities.”
The company’s operational model is built around integration with major e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, Salesforce, and Magento. This seamless integration empowers brands with efficient plug-ins that directly incorporate with their websites. Over 50 partner brands have joined forces with Bodo, aiming to leverage rapid delivery as a competitive advantage.
Central to Bodo’s ethos is sustainable fulfillment. The company operates from solar-powered warehouses and collaborates with emissionless, fully-electric courier fleets. This approach aligns with the growing consumer demand for eco-friendly practices in the delivery sector.
This expansion endeavor has far-reaching implications. By joining forces with Bodo, brands can extend faster delivery options to millions of customers across the country, enhancing their overall customer experience.
In November, Bodo secured $2.3 million in a seed round, showcasing its potential and attracting advisors like Cameron Roberts, Nando’s Group’s Chief Commercial Officer. Co-founders Brandon Neman and Jack Green, both with strong backgrounds, are driving Bodo’s success. They previously played key roles in the growth of CloudKitchens, founded by ex-Uber founder Travis Kalanick, and have experience scaling businesses internationally. Green’s prior role as a commercial strategy manager at Deliveroo further bolsters Bodo’s industry expertise.
