Allegro, the largest b-to-c marketplace in Poland, has extended its agreement with delivery company InPost for another seven years. The companies are working to launch 24 hour delivery service.

Currently, about 30% of orders on Allegro are processed on the next business day, while around 75% are processed within two business days. The company wants to increase this number significantly and is currently testing a new delivery service provided by InPost.

Allegro has increasingly focused on improving the speed and reliability of its delivery options. In October, it started to display delivery timeframes and launched a special filter to find offers with fast deliveries.

Allegro’s H1 2020 net revenue was PLN 1.8 billion ($480.8 million U.S.), up from PLN 1.2 billion in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was PLN 808 million ($216 million U.S.), up from PLN 631 million in H1 FY2019.

As of June 30, Allegro had around 12.3 million active buyers on its marketplace, a 13% year-on-year increase.
