Same-day courier firm Addison Lee has launched AL Now – a two-hour rapid delivery service in London.

AL Now will enable London businesses to offer its customers a specific two-hour delivery window.

Addison Lee said the service is designed to help independent businesses compete on a more level playing field with retail giants such as Amazon by giving more control and choice over delivery times.

Liam Griffin, CEO of Addison Lee, said: “Since the first lockdown last March, we’ve seen our courier services grow by 30% as shopping behaviour shifted online. At the same time, we have seen shoppers come to expect that their purchases will be delivered at a time and date of their choosing.

“We created AL Now in response this trend – offering a simple, speedy and seamless delivery solution designed to help London's local businesses meet changing customer demands.”
