Date : 17 June 2019

Aldi has expanded its partnership with iForce, a company owned by Eddie Stobart, to back the future growth of its online platform for non-food products.

Partnership dating back from 2015

The partnership started in 2015 when iForce has been selected by Aldi to support the launch of its online platform for non-food Special buys and wine products. The expansion of the partnership will allow Aldi to further develop its online proposition and increase its UK market share.

iForce, which operates out of the Corby campus sites, will carry on providing Aldi with its fulfilment service, which is powered by its proprietary software, SMART. In addition, Aldi will continue using iPathfinder, iForce’s carrier management solution that ‘s supported by the Route Genie software.

Our eCommerce platform is a key part of our business, making our award-winning quality wine and Specialbuys available to as many people as possible,” said David Barter, Managing director of IT at Aldi. He adds: “Using iForce’s expertise in fulfilment means we have now been able to expand our online offering, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

Aldi is a hugely successful, dynamic brand and we are extremely proud to continue our partnership and support the ongoing development of their eCommerce operation. Our industry-leading fulfilment and carrier management solutions are underpinned by bespoke proprietary software, developed over many years of managing challenges within the evolving modern eCommerce marketplace. This allows our business to provide tailored solutions that deliver true value for money,” said Sébastien Desreumaux, CEO at iForce.
