Sherpa’s Valentine’s Day sets new delivery record

Aussie tech start-up company Sherpa says it broke its own record for number of deliveries from floristries and gifting stores across Australia on Valentine’s Day.

The largest same-day delivery company says demand this year was unprecedented with more than 20,000 Valentine’s Day deliveries made, indicative of broader shifts in the delivery industry.

Forty per cent of these deliveries were on February 14 with six gifts delivered every minute. This was up 32 per cent more on last year’s Valentine’s Day.

Sherpa delivered gifts such as flowers, cupcakes, hampers and alcohol. There was also a huge demand for balloons, champagne, doughnuts, edible flowers and lamingtons. Roses however remained the most popular present.

“The demand for Sherpa’s same-day delivery model continues to explode as more and more retailers partner with us to help solve their delivery needs,” Duncan Brett, CEO of Sherpa says.

“As we enter some kind of post-pandemic normality, the sentiment towards wanting goods immediately has remained very high,” he adds. “A whole new cohort of customers has experienced the convenience and value of getting their goods same day, and they are clearly loving it.”

The Aussie start-up, founded in 2014, says Gosford in NSW is 2022’s most romantic city with 500 customers sending Valentine’s Day roses. Cranbourne in Victoria, South Brisbane and Campbelltown in NSW also recorded very high Valentine’s Day deliveries.

“Consumer demand for immediate receipt of goods has completely exploded, and that’s where Sherpa absolutely shines,” Duncan says.

“We deliver same day – and only same day – for the biggest retailers across groceries, alcohol, technology, flowers and medication. We also work with SMEs looking to get their cupcakes, clothing, hampers, homewares or anything else to customers on the same day of booking.”

Sherpa says it has recently introduced its delivery services in New Zealand.
