Carrefour Sprint launches in 4 French cities

French hypermarket chain Carrefour has launched Carrefour Sprint, a 15-minute delivery service in conjunction with Uber Eats and Cajoo.

Using the Cajoo network of dark store customer fulfilment centres, Carrefour is to offer 2,000 food and non-food products. Initially the offer will be across the whole of Paris as well as Boulogne, Neuilly and Levallois. By the end of the year, the service is to be available in Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lille and Montpellier.

“As a leader in delivery home shopping in France, Carrefour aims to meet all customer expectations, including quick commerce,” commented Elodie Perthuisot, director of e-commerce, data and digital transformation at Carrefour Group.

“With the launch of Carrefour Sprint, we are offering consumers a quality offer, capitalising on know-how of Carrefour and its partners. We are therefore delighted to strengthen our partnership with Uber Eats and accelerate the development of Cajoo’s activities.”

Through Uber Eats, customers can already choose from around 6,000 products from close to 1,000 Carrefour stores in 160 French towns and cities to be delivered within the hour. This differs from Carrefour Sprint which offers fewer products but in just 15 minutes.

“By strengthening our partnership with Carrefour and thus offering the delivery of ultra-fast everyday products, we are continuing to diversify the selection offered while meeting a need for immediacy in just a few clicks, combined with our technology and our logistics expertise,” commented Chloé Baruchel, grocery and new verticals lead at Uber Eats France.
