Flipkart Quick expands to six more cities for under-90 minute deliveries
Flipkart has expanded its hyperlocal delivery service Quick to six new cities including Delhi, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, Noida, Hyderabad and Pune as the demand for essential goods on e-commerce platforms surges amid the second wave of the pandemic.
Customers can order COVID-19 essentials, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, meat, grocery, mobiles, electronics, and baby care products - delivered at their doorstep within hours. The company also aims to expand Flipkart Quick to other metros such as Kolkata and Mumbai in a phased manner.
The hyperlocal delivery service was launched in Bengaluru in 2020 to widen the accessibility of products and enable quick delivery for consumers who order products from Flipkart hubs in their location.
Flipkart explains that Flipkart Quick leverages its investment in Ninjacart and strategic partnerships with other local vendors to build an end-to-end ecosystem to get fresh essential commodities.
Shadowfax, Flipkart’s strategic logistics partner, will play an important role in enabling last-mile deliveries for Flipkart Quick, the company adds. Speaking over the development, Sandeep Karwa, Vice-President at Flipkart, said that hyperlocal capabilities are invaluable in enhancing the online shopping experience for consumers and boosting supply chain operations.
“It is important to explore ecosystem partnerships to strengthen such capabilities and accelerate faster, reliable deliveries to customers. Flipkart is a customer-centric organisation, and we remain committed to creating solutions that will not only deliver greater value to our customers but also boost local farmers and suppliers," he said in a statement.
