Deliv loves New York

Same-day delivery provider Deliv is strengthening its position in the important New York market.

Deliv has acquired Zipments, a New York-based same-day delivery company. This gives Deliv more of a foothold and delivery density in New York City, one of the largest markets for same-day delivery in the country.

Zipments services brands such as Trina Turk, on-demand companies such as Casper, Handy, and Plated, local merchants such as B&H, Murray's Cheese and Epicerie Boulud, as well as large corporate clients who need to send packages across town.

"Zipments has established itself as the leader of same-day delivery in New York City, and the team has done a magnificent job building up its profitable business in this prime and complex market," said Daphne Carmeli, founder and CEO of Deliv. "When you consider that one of the keys to our business is route density, joining forces enhances operational efficiencies. We also share a similar philosophy, similar business model, and similar clients, so Zipments is a great match for us on multiple levels."

New York is emerging as one of the top markets for same-day delivery in the U.S., along with San Francisco/Silicon Valley. Amazon has been very active in establishing a same-day delivery infrastructure there, and Starbucks recently started piloting deliveries to the Empire State Building, and smaller specialty delivery services like Doorman are also eyeing the Big Apple. Deliv is the latest player in the same-day delivery space to try to be a part of it in the city that never sleeps.
