Electrical distributor Rexel has announced a partnership with last-mile, on-demand delivery network Gophr to offer customers a new 90 minute delivery service called ‘Rexel Rapid’.

Rexel, a leading distributor in the UK, is working with Gophr to deliver to customers within a five mile radius of their local branch within 90 minutes or less. The rapid service covers 16 branches across London with plans for a possible nationwide roll-out in the future.

Created with electricians, general tradespeople and facilities management professionals in mind, Rexel Rapid gives customers the ability to order from the full product range online or via their local branch.

Graham Smith, Strategic Account Director at Gophr, commented: “We are excited to be partnering with Rexel to provide tradespeople with the supplies they need while saving them valuable time. Our easy-to-use front-end booking platform means that each Rexel branch has access to its own Gophr account, enabling them to manage payments locally and more effectively.

“Travelling off-site for tools and supplies is a costly and unnecessary expense for many tradespeople, sitting in traffic rather than making progress on the job. Time is money and when every penny counts we’re pleased to save customers’ time, help boost on-site productivity and improve financial efficiency. It’s great to see Rexel act so swiftly to provide customers with the service they want.”

Joe Burrows, Area Manager-London Central, at Rexel added: “We understand that needs change quickly on-site, so we’re proud to offer a service that reflects this and meets the rapidly growing demand. We’re pleased to launch Rexel Rapid and provide customers with an easy to use, reliable delivery service that works as hard as they do.”
