Shopify pledges to “not only level the playing field for independent businesses, but tilt it in their favour”

Shopify has reached an agreement to acquire Deliverr, a leading fulfillment technology provider, for $2.1 billion.

Shopify Fulfillment Network (SFN) and Deliverr are combining to remove supply chain complexity for merchants of all sizes, on and off Shopify, democratizing access to end-to-end logistics for independent brands for the first time

Founded in 2017, Deliverr’s  logistics network now delivers more than a million orders per month for thousands of merchants across the U.S.

Deliverr’s technology strengthens SFN’s ability to manage merchant inventory from port to porch as it travels to the warehouse network, gets distributed across sales channels, and ultimately arrives at the consumer’s doorstep

SFN and Deliverr will power Shop Promise, a new service that offers consumers two-day and next-day delivery options.

“Our goal is to not only level the playing field for independent businesses, but tilt it in their favour—turning their size and agility into their superpower,” said Tobi Lütke, founder and CEO of Shopify. “Together with Deliverr, Shopify Fulfillment Network will give millions of growing businesses access to a simple, powerful logistics platform that will allow them to make their customers happy over and over again.”

“Our technology and expertise in inventory management, inventory placement, and demand chain combines perfectly with Shopify’s roadmap, enabling us to now build an end-to-end logistics platform together,” said Harish Abbott, co-founder and CEO of Deliverr. “Shopify has been building the future of merchant-first fulfillment solutions, and our team has a track record of helping businesses of all sizes streamline their operations. We’re excited to join Shopify in their mission to make commerce better for everyone while democratizing shipping and fulfillment for independent entrepreneurs.”

Shopify Fulfillment Network, 6 River Systems, and Deliverr will collectively form a broader logistics unit within Shopify under the group’s newly appointed CEO, Aaron Brown, who has led Shopify Fulfillment Network since 2020.
