Sainsbury’s boosts online grocery delivery capacity

Sainsbury’s has announced plans to increase its weekly grocery online orders to 700,000 by the end of October.

Covering both home delivery and click & collect, the new milestone will mean the retailer will have doubled its online capacity since the beginning of March.

Sainsbury’s is also extending its online delivery times by starting early morning orders half an hour earlier from 6.30am and extending late night deliveries up until 11.30pm.

To meet demand, the retailer is adding almost 200 new click & collect locations and there will be nearly 1,000 more online grocery delivery vans on the road in the coming months in comparison with last year. There will also be 1,000 vans out delivering for Argos.

In addition, Sainsbury’s has reopened its Delivery Pass subscription service to new customers.

Nigel Blunt, director of ecommerce at Sainsbury’s, said: “Doubling our groceries online orders in six months to 700,000 is an incredible milestone. It has been a huge team effort and also demonstrates the strength and flexibility of our online model. Over the past six months, customers have adapted to shopping increasingly online and we’re hearing really positive feedback from shoppers using this service. With our strong availability, outstanding stores and amazing colleagues, we’re ready to serve our customers however and whenever they want to shop.”
