CitySprint Sponsors Snow Valley Golden Chariot Awards Online Retail Event PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 21 January 2011

CitySprint has been announced as a sponsor for an online retail event, the Golden Chariot, being hosted by Snow Valley on 19th January 2011.

The Awards celebrate the top five retailers identified by Snow Valley for the most impressive delivery services, evaluated from the delivery charges right through to the quality of the order tracking. These retailers will be announced for the first time at the event, with the retailer with the best overall delivery service being awarded with the prestigious Golden Chariot award.

It is the second year that CitySprint has been involved with the event. Bel Shergill, CitySprint’s Retail Sector Manager, explains:

“CitySprint is very pleased to once again be involved in Snow Valley’s Golden Chariot awards. As a leading provider of retail delivery solutions, we are fully committed to excellence in e-commerce fulfilment and that is exactly what this event is all about. Last year’s event was a real celebration of the progress that retailers and carriers are making to better meet customer expectations and we look forward to toasting this year’s winners on the night.”

CitySprint’s retail solution was initially launched in 2009 in partnership with online retailer ASOS.com. CitySprint’s retail delivery solution utilises CitySprint's unique infrastructure and allows retailers to offer a SameDay service, 7-days a week including Bank Holidays, for deliveries within and around major conurbations. CitySprint is working with many different retailers who are keen to offer their customers this leading-edge delivery choice.

CitySprint’s unique national network, comprising of 31 wholly owned ServiceCentres and fleet of over 1600 couriers (who are uniformed, security checked and drive branded vehicles), is one of the key reasons it is able to offer such a viable service offering. CitySprint’s UK delivery footprint is vital in providing a scale of coverage for the retailer’s clients, offering effective supply chain solutions with the ability to minimise delivery time windows by being in close proximity to distribution centres or outlets. Other key factors include CitySprint’s investment in technology that offers full transparency of the supply chain and enables the retailer to effectively utilise CitySprint as extension of their service offering.

The Snow Valley Golden Chariot Awards event also marks the official publication of Snow Valley’s highly anticipated 2011 Online Retail Delivery in the UK report which is the industry authority on the delivery services that UK retailers provide to online shoppers. The report is based on research carried out by Snow Valley in the final quarter of 2010. Live orders were placed on 229 UK online stores and every aspect of the delivery service was evaluated, from the delivery charges right through to the quality of the order tracking.
