Shutl sets up shop in North America

Shutl, the same-hour, same-day e-commerce delivery specialist, has expanded into North America. The company’s service will go live next month in New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago, and will roll out to fifteen additional cities in the coming months.

As a part of the US  launch, Shutl has appointed Steven Chen as vice president & general manager of North America. Chen’s previous e-commerce roles include chief operating officer at social shopping site Kaboodle and vice president of business development for price comparison shopping engine Nextag.

In his new role Chen will focus on spearheading continued growth and momentum of Shutl out of its North American headquarters in San Francisco. 

Chen said: "The ecommerce industry is about to take another giant step forward with the launch of Shutl’s innovative delivery solution. I’m thrilled to be joining Shutl – there is a clear, growing need for consumer-centric options and Shutl will meet this.

"Shutl will be a great partner for those multi-channel retailers looking to better compete with Amazon and provide new ways to delight their customers."

Once Shutl completes its rollout in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, it will continue into the second phase of the launch, expanding to Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa, Washington, Montreal, and Toronto.

The move into the US, was primed by last year’s announcement of Shutl securing over $6 million in funding from investors including UPS, e.ventures and Notion Capital to accelerate its North American plans.

Tom Allason, Shutl CEO and founder, added: "We shop online because it is fast and convenient—two things that delivery is not. Shutl is bringing delivery up to speed by giving shoppers what they want, when they want it."
