Swiggy, the on-demand delivery platform, has launched ‘Swiggy Go’ — another step in its vision of offering convenience to consumers. Launched across Bangalore, Swiggy Go is an instant pick up and drop service to send packages anywhere in the city.
It had launched Swiggy Stores earlier this year. Like Swiggy Stores, Go will be part of the Swiggy app.
With a promise to offer delivery convenience to every consumer in the city, Go can be used to pick up and drop off laundry, get forgotten keys, send lunch boxes from home to office or even deliver documents or parcels to clients.
Sriharsha Majety, CEO, Swiggy, said, “Swiggy’s vision is to elevate the quality of life of urban consumers by offering unparalleled convenience. After enabling this with food delivery for five years and stores across the city with Swiggy Stores, Go will open the Swiggy delivery superpower to all consumers in the city.”
“Bangalore will be the first city in the country to experience Swiggy’s last-mile delivery for everything, not just food. By 2020, we will expand Swiggy Go to over 300 cities and Swiggy Stores to all the major metros, ushering in a new era of convenience for consumers across India,” he added.
Launch of Swiggy Stores in Bengaluru and Hyderabad
Swiggy also announced the phased roll-out of its on-demand delivery service, Swiggy Stores, for consumers to order from every store in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
In six months since its launch in Gurugram, Swiggy Stores is already operating at a significant scale, with plenty of headroom for growth. Adding new stores every day, Swiggy has increased the reach and revenue stream of its partners.
After the success in Gurugram, Swiggy Stores will now deliver from stores in 10 categories which include fruits and vegetables, kiranas and supermarkets, meat stores and pharmacies.
In Bangalore, Swiggy will deliver from any store, including more than 300 best-in-class merchant-partners like Godrej Nature's Basket, Nilgiri's, Organic World, Heads Up For Tails and Nandu’s Chicken. In Hyderabad, which will launch in two weeks, Swiggy has tied up with close to 200 merchant-partners in addition to delivering from any store a customer chooses in the city.
Both cities will deliver from national partners like Easyday, Heritage Fresh, Spar, Apollo Pharmacy, Healthkart, Ferns N Petals, Licious and FreshToHome. Pharmacy deliveries consist of over the counter medicines only.
