Asda has become the first UK supermarket to offer everything it currently lists online in a one-hour Express Delivery service. Other supermarkets are offering one-hour delivery services but only for a limited range.
The Asda Express Delivery service roll-out comes after a successful pilot. Customers within a three-mile radius of its stores in Halifax, Rotherham and Poole will be offered one-hour delivery for a fee of £8.50.
Customers will be able to order up to 70 items for Express Delivery but if they choose more items these can be delivered within a four-hour window. Should the three store trial be successful the grocer plans to roll it out to more stores nationwide.
In addition, Asda is extending its existing partnership with Uber Eats from 200 to more than 300 stores, with 500 products on offer on this limited service.
“After successfully trialling an Express Delivery service, we know this is something that our customers want as part of our online grocery proposition and we are delighted to be able to offer this service to even more customers,” Asda online grocery vice president Simon Gregg said.
“The launch of our new Express Delivery service and extension of our existing partnership with Uber Eats to 300 stores means that customers can get their order delivered to the doorstep at market-leading pace.”
