OrderGrid and Deliveroo have today announced a partnership to support Deliveroo's rapid grocery delivery service - Deliveroo Hop - across Europe.
Toronto, ON /PRNewswire/ - Deliveroo Hop launched in September 2021 and aims to deliver groceries to customers' doors in as little as 10 minutes. The service benefits from an integration between OrderGrid and Deliveroo's newly-developed grocery management technology alongside the company's existing logistics algorithms and network of more than 95,000 riders across the UK.
As part of the partnership, Deliveroo has made an investment into OrderGrid. The investment will help support Deliveroo Hop's growth in Europe. It will also support the expansion of OrderGrid's engineering team and OrderGrid's marketing and support teams.
OrderGrid's proprietary cloud-based software equips dark store operators with the tools to efficiently order, receive, put-away, manage and publish inventory for thousands of products in real-time across hundreds of sites. Once a customer order is placed, OrderGrid's system automatically alerts an onsite picker and routes to the ordered products, with a typical order ready for pickup in less than 2 minutes.
Kris Calder, Co-Founder and CEO of OrderGrid said: "Getting your groceries delivered in as little as 10 minutes is a game changer. The local dark store model provides a great customer experience, and it can be scaled rapidly. It's still early days, but we are seeing growing consumer demand for rapid grocery pickup and delivery in metropolitan and suburban areas across the world."
Stephen Goldstein, EVP, Global Head of Grocery & Deliveroo Hop at Deliveroo said: "Deliveroo Hop will enhance Deliveroo's on-demand grocery offering both for consumers and for our grocery partners. We have been impressed with the OrderGrid team and are excited to partner with them as we develop this new service."
