Office Depot has announced the launch of same-day delivery. Beginning on Aug. 28, customers in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, Atlanta, and Los Angeles markets can order products and receive the items during one of four delivery windows, depending on what time the order was placed.
Office Depot is partnering with Deliv, a leading crowdsourced, last-mile logistics company providing same-day delivery and returns for omnichannel retailers, local businesses and e-commerce companies.
“With our new same-day delivery and our omnichannel approach, we are utilizing our retail stores as assets and part of our supply chain to give our customers the best possible experience,” said Gerry Smith, CEO of Office Depot.
The delivery fee will be waived as an introductory offer. Using Deliv, consumers can select delivery times and location, and track orders in real-time.
“Retail is undergoing a rapid transformation,” said Kevin Moffitt, senior vice president and chief digital officer at Office Depot. “To exceed our customers' increasing expectations, we continue to enhance our omnichannel shopping experience. Adding same-day delivery capabilities to our growing in-store pickup and ship-from-store programs allows us to better leverage our retail locations as distribution hubs, and serve our customers faster and more efficiently.”
