Online electricals retailer AO has today announced that it has partnered with the UK’s fastest growing supermarket / fifth largest supermarket* Aldi, to begin delivering Specialbuys products ordered online by its customers that require home delivery.
AO has a wealth of experience delivering large white goods as well as other electricals over the past 30 years, and will utilise this – and its logistics network that services 95% of the UK – to begin offering Aldi customers the same gold-standard customer service AO customers receive.
Aldi’s Specialbuys, wines and spirits are already available to purchase online, but the three-year partnership will see AO provide its services for larger products such as barbecues, patio furniture and sports equipment that will require two-person home delivery. Aldi customers will benefit from the range of services AO can offer, including increased weekend delivery options.
Commenting on the partnership, David Ashwell, MD of AO Logistics, said: “We are extremely proud of the award-winning logistics capability we have built here at AO. There’s no better stamp of approval than other retailers, like Aldi, wanting to partner with us to help them deliver exceptional service to their customers.”
David Barter, Managing Director of National IT at Aldi, said: “Our online Specialbuys are going from strength to strength, and this partnership with AO will allow us to offer customers even more options for our larger products that require home delivery.”
