October 2019 was definitely a month worth celebrating. It was not only when Drive Yello reached a key startup milestone, 5 years since our CEO had one of those “surely there’s an app for that” moments but we were also voted to be the best start up in 2019 by retailers around Australia at the Nora awards.
The business has evolved over the last 5 years, initially focusing on delivering fast food for brands suchs as Menulog, McDonalds and La Porchetta. A few years in we moved into Grocery and Alcohol and now deliver Woolworths groceries & BWS drinks in less than an hour. More recent times has seen Drive Yello diversify even further now delivering anything bought online from electronics to fashion, flowers to hardware for brands such as Cue clothing, Sheike and Glamcorner.
We have discovered the need for fast delivery spans multiple verticals and we are proud to present businesses and consumers with last mile delivery solutions on demand and tailored to them. Given our growth and recent entry into delivering for major retailers we were humbled and proud to be awarded Best Startup at the 2019 NORA awards.
NORA (The National Online Retailers Association) hold this award event annually to celebrate solution partner excellence across Australia and New Zealand. Each year there are multiple solution based providers nominated for a variety of awards. This year we were nominated for four awards.
A huge thankyou to our fellow retailers across Australia and New Zealand that voted for us. To be recognised as best startup by our industry peers and partners is a great achievement and honour.
NORA’s solution partner excellence awards are leading in their field. They celebrate and recognise the impact these solution businesses and partnerships have and the ecosystem that is built around them. They stand uniquely in the industry with a consideration for involvement at all levels. This year over 7,000 votes were received from participating retailers. It’s a great turn out and continues to inspire great work and innovation in the industry.
It’s an exciting time for Drive Yello. Last mile delivery is continuing to grow and dovetail with some of the biggest tech trends that are set up to define the 21st century; automation, driverless automotive tech, personalisation at scale, and the gig economy.
