Flipkart Quick will now be available in six new cities along with Bengaluru, where it originally launched last July. Flipkart announced in a press release that Delhi, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida, Hyderabad and Pune will now be able to be served by Flipkart Quick. With the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the country, the hyperlocal Flipkart Quick service aims to deliver daily needs in 90 minutes to prevent people from leaving their homes. Other urban cities will also be covered in stages by this service.
Flipcart introduced Flipkart Quick again July 2020 whereby items such as fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meat, groceries, mobile phones, electronics and baby care products will be delivered safely within 90 minutes. There are more than 3000 products distributed in these categories. So far, the service has been limited to Bengaluru, but the company has announced that it will now cover six new cities.
Flipkart uses its partnership with local suppliers, its logistics partner Shadowfax and its investment in Ninjacart to make Flipkart Quick work as an end-to-end ecosystem. With Flipkart Quick, customers in eligible cities will be able to order online and receive delivery within 90 minutes, or if they want to book a slot, they can choose between the available two-hour slots. However, customers must check local restrictions for night curfew before placing orders in these time slots. Their first order will not have shipping fees and subsequent orders over Rs. 499 will also come with free shipping. Delivery time is between 6:00 and 12:00 (midnight).
The company also said the hyperlocal service would be expanded to Kolkata, Mumbai and other cities in stages.
“Flipkart is a customer-oriented organization, and we continue to be committed to creating solutions that will not only bring more value to our customers, but also stimulate local farmers and suppliers, in addition to providing an idea for entrepreneurship.” said Flipkart Vice President Sandeep Karwa.
