CitySprint courier

CitySprint's On the dot service has expanded its same-day delivery contract with online retail giant ASOS.

Six weeks after it began fulfilling same-day orders in London, On the dot has rolled the service out to postcodes in Leeds and Manchester.

Deliveries can be made on the same day if an order is placed before 10am, at a charge of £9.95.

ASOS said the service will be expanded to other UK cities in the new year.

CitySprint Group CEO Patrick Gallagher said: "We are incredibly proud that On the dot’s market leading technology will allow ASOS to further enhance the experience of its customers in Leeds and Manchester.

Convenient delivery plays a huge role in acquiring and retaining customers and the provision of same-day delivery services is a must-have for businesses like ASOS whose customers increasingly want to shop on their own terms.

"As this demand grows, On the dot is well placed to help by offering retailers a range of flexible delivery options with nationwide reach."

Last month CitySprint announced it was taking on 1,000 additional couriers to see it through the festive period.

Gallagher said: “Peak season is one of the most demanding times of the year for our customers, with delivery volumes increasing. We are committed to providing each of our clients with a first-class service all year round."
