The move comes after a two-year collaboration between the two companies in London.
Online ordering platform Orderswift announced that its direct delivery partnerships with on-demand logistics specialist Stuart have expanded to cover 34 cities and towns around the UK.
With direct delivery, Orderswift explains that customer orders are placed through a restaurant’s own website through their branded ordering interface. Once payments have been confirmed,
the relevant order data is passed through an API integration to Stuart, which fulfills delivery to the customer using its large network of independent couriers.
Orderswift says the ability for restaurants to collect a delivery fee directly from the customer, as well as it being a commission-free model, allows direct delivery orders to have a lower cost to restaurants “versus those that come from third-party marketplaces like Deliveroo and Uber Eats.”
In addition to London, Orderswift and Stuart’s direct delivery partnership now covers the following locations: Brighton, Birmingham, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Bristol, Basildon, Cambridge, Cardiff, Chesterfield, Darlington, Derby, Exeter, Gillingham, Hull, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Northampton, Nottingham, Oxford, Plymouth, Reading, Sheffield, South Shields, Southampton, Sunderland, Swansea, Teeside, Wakefield and Warrington.
