Grocery giant Tesco has launched a pilot to ultra-fast delivery company Gorillas, to give customers the option to have goods delivered within ten minutes.
Tesco products are currently available on the Gorillas app and can be delivered quickly to customers in a selected area.
The partnership will see Gorillas set up micro-fulfilment sites at five large Tesco stores, where goods will be picked, packaged, and delivered to customers in ten minutes. The first micro-fulfilment site will use excess warehouse space within the Thornton Heath Tesco store and stock a selection of around 2,000 products.
Jason Tarry, Tesco UK & ROI CEO said: “The idea that we can reach our customers in just ten minutes is really exciting. We are committed to being easily the most convenient choice for our customers, enabling them to shop whenever and however they want. This pilot with Gorillas will help customers get their products right away, supporting those looking to buy food for tonight or last minute forgotten items. We look forward to hearing what our customers think.”
