Demand for home delivery spikes
Due to the epidemic, the demand for home delivery has greatly increased for hypermarket and supermarket chains, therefore a large part of the workforce working in stores has switched to organizing delivery, writes novekedes.hu.
Spar told the portal that there has been double-digit growth in this area compared to the previous normal period, with 80% of online orders being for home delivery and 20% for in-store pickup.
To expand its capacity, Tesco has partnered with Ice Cube to help deliver with 26 cars and 28 drivers.
Thus, they can deliver orders to a total of 460 new households per day, and their delivery capacity has increased by about 40%.
At Auchan, order ramp-up is being handled by ordering three pre-assembled packages of the most sought-after items.
