June 8, 2022
Emeryville, CA, June 8, 2022 — AxleHire, an expedited urban last-mile delivery provider, announced today that they are now providing last-mile delivery service for Radial, a bpost group company and the leader in eCommerce fulfillment. The two companies can offer next-day delivery at a great value with a focus on a more flexible and scalable final mile delivery solution. AxleHire currently provides service for Radial in major metros on both the East and West coasts.
After Radial sorts orders in their fulfillment centers, AxleHire transfers them to the closest regional sortation center, positioned close to the end consumer. AxleHire builds dense routes in real-time using advanced routing algorithms and optimizes capacity via a heterogeneous driver fleet in order to provide Radial customers a fast and efficient delivery service.
“Last peak we managed millions of parcels between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it’s important to have reliable carrier partnerships to achieve our clients’ delivery expectations and provide a positive customer experience,” said Carlton Farr, Vice President of Supply Chain Transportation with Radial. “Integrating with AxleHire this past year provided a quick onboarding experience for our clients to ensure delivery by Christmas. Delivery within days of ordering is a game-changer compared to the legacy delivery companies looking at an early December cut-off date.”
AxleHire’s tech-forward delivery platform supports millions of daily transactions and scales to support seasonal and unplanned capacity surges. Currently, Radial shippers who use AxleHire enjoy a >98.5% on-time delivery (OTD) rate.
“We’re thrilled to provide Radial’s customers a superior delivery experience at a great value,” said Adam Bryant, CEO, AxleHire. “In today’s rapidly evolving world of next-day delivery, our combined technologies assure shippers that they can meet consumers’ expectations day in and day out.”
