Gophr Partners With Scottish Grocery App Yuu


Gophr, the same day delivery firm, has partnered with Scottish grocery app Yuu.

Yuu, a subsidiary of United Wholesale Scotland, is collaborating with Gophr to deliver everyday essentials from over 70 convenience stores across Glasgow, with plans to roll the service out across Scotland by the end of 2022.

The tie-up will allow for a one-hour customer promise within a two-mile radius of each participating store and a returns API functionality.

Through the partnership, Yuu will also be able to offer a seven-day-a-week service between 8 am – 9 pm and is looking to hit hundreds of orders per day this summer.

Through Gophr’s API integration, Yuu users can track their delivery progress in real-time and contact the courier directly.

“Yuu came to us with a very simple plan: to be faster and easier to book with than their rivals,” Gophr head of strategic accounts Graham Smith said.

“Our experience in the last mile delivery space and grocery sector means we can help with the former while not compromising on the doorstep experience.

“We’re always excited to go into partnerships with those who want to make a difference and there is no denying that Yuu has ambitions that match ours.

“The fact that we can announce such a relationship at a time of uncertainty within the RGD space is testament to the work the team is doing here at Gophr.”

Yuu managing director Chris Gallacher added: “We asked some of our retailers why they weren’t getting on the crest of the wave by moving into home delivery.”

“The biggest barriers were investing in their delivery vehicle, getting a reliable driver and a platform that reflects the range we have in-store.

“Our Tech, Marketing, ecommerce and Operations teams have worked tirelessly to remove these barriers over the past 12 months. This would not be possible without the partnership with Gophr, we are both aligned with giving consumers a great service at the doorstep.”
