Deliv expands into 9 new markets, offers returns

Same-day delivery company Deliv announced an expansion into nine new markets and will now reach more than 100 cities. The expansion gives the company one of the largest footprints in same-day delivery in the country.

Deliv partners with 250 retailers including Macy's (NYSE:M), Bloomingdale's, Williams-Sonoma (NYSE:WSM) and Foot Locker (NYSE:FL), as well as six mall operators.

"Today's consumers want the convenience of picking exactly when their packages will arrive—not sometime in the next two to five days or sometime before 8:00 pm. It's no surprise we've experienced an organic growth increase of 800 percent in the first half of this year compared to the same period last year," said Daphne Carmeli, CEO of Deliv. "Deliv is more than doubling its footprint with the expansion and is enhancing the shopping experience at participating retailers across the country."

Deliv operates in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, northern New Jersey, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. New markets include Atalanta, Boston/Cambridge, Dallas/Fort Worth, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, the New York City area, Philadelphia, and Orange County, California. The new markets will roll out by the end of August, with the exception of New York, which will launch in October.

After the expansion, department store chains Macy's and Bloomgindale's will expand their same-day delivery offerings into all of Deliv's 17 markets. Macy's offers same-day delivery for $5 more than ground shipping. Deliv will now also offer returns for Macy's and Bloomingdale's in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and the Bay Area. To schedule, customers go to the store's website, authorize their return and Deliv will pick it up at a scheduled time.
