“The backing from these high-profile investors is testament to the size of the opportunity in front of us.

“This is a really exciting time as we work harder and faster, partnering with the most innovative retailers in the market.”

Sorted products include SortedHERO, an application for retailers to display real-time delivery options at checkout; SortedPRO, a delivery management platform for carrier and shipping management; SortedREACT, an AI-driven tracking platform for carrier and delivery communications post purchase.

Richard Watts – portfolio manager, Merian Chrysalis said: “The delivery management sector is ripe for disruption and we believe Sorted has emerged as the only credible, global challenger to the current market-leader.

“We are excited to provide David and the team with the growth capital required to continue developing truly innovative technologies and expand internationally.’’
