International Track 200

Stuart Miller, chief executive of Bybox, co-founded the company with the purchase of a French “left luggage” locker manufacturer. Soon, he had turned the business into a Europe-wide network of electronically operated drop-boxes, enabling the company’s international network of drivers to make night-time deliveries to field engineers. Last year the Oxfordshire firm launched the consumer side of its service in partnership with lingerie retailer Figleaves.com, whose customers use the system to avoid the hassle of having to arrange home delivery. International sales have grown 92% a year, from £1.1m in 2007 to £3.9m in 2009.
