Asda introduces new one-hour Express Delivery service
Asda has made its online product range of more than 30,000 grocery products available for delivery in just one hour.
The new Express Delivery service has been launched at three Asda stores this week following a successful trial.
Customers living within a three-mile radius of the supermarket’s Halifax, Rotherham and Poole stores can order up to 70 items through the service, although they are also given the option of ordering a larger basket and selecting a slot within the next four hours with no limit on the number of items to be purchased.
Express delivery customers are also able to use a new feature that allows them to track the progress of their order from store to doorstep in real time. Each delivery is charged at the flat rate of £8.50 with no minimum spend per basket.
If the service proves popular, it could be rolled out to more stores.
Simon Gregg, Asda’s vice president of online grocery, said: “After successfully trialling an Express Delivery service, we know this is something that our customers want as part of our online grocery proposition and we are delighted to be able to offer this service to even more customers.”
Asda has also announced that it is extending its partnership with Uber Eats from 200 to more than 300 stores. The service offers customers the opportunity to shop a range of 500 products for rapid delivery.
Gregg added: “The launch of our new Express Delivery service and extension of our existing partnership with Uber Eats to 300 stores means that customers can get their order delivered to the doorstep at market-leading pace.”
