AO takes to supermarket sector for logistics opportunity
Online electricals retailer AO is expanding its logistics muscle in a deal with supermarket chain Aldi, which will see the Bolton-based firm deliver Specialbuys – a sector which includes electricals – ordered online by Aldi customers requiring home delivery.
AO has been delivering large white goods and other electricals for the past 30 years and its logistics network services 95% of the UK.
The three-year partnership will see AO provide its services for large products that require a two-person home delivery. Aldi customers will benefit from the range of services the logistics business can offer, including increased weekend delivery options.
MD of AO Logistics David Ashwell said: “We are extremely proud of the award-winning logistics capability we have built here at AO. There’s no better stamp of approval than other retailers, like Aldi, wanting to partner with us to help them deliver exceptional service to their customers.”
“Our online Specialbuys are going from strength to strength, and this partnership with AO will allow us to offer customers even more options for our larger products that require home delivery,” added David Barter, Managing Director of National IT at Aldi.
