COMFORTDELGRO TAXI TO WORK WITH LAZADA REDMART TO FULFIL GROCERY DELIVERY DEMAND
14 April 2020 – Your online RedMart groceries could soon be delivered by the iconic blue and yellow taxis from ComfortDelGro.
The two companies are working together to utilise some of ComfortDelGro’s 10,000-strong fleet of taxis as RedMart grocery delivery vehicles. As the go-to platform for consumers in Singapore, RedMart, the online grocery arm of Lazada is seeing a rise in demand. The collaboration will help expand RedMart’s existing delivery fleet as Singapore goes into an unprecedented period of physical distancing to stem the spread of COVID-19.
Interested cabbies are being onboarded and will undergo training provided by RedMart, before embarking on delivery jobs by the end of April. For this trial pilot, the cabbies will pick up orders from RedMart’s warehouse at Alexandra Terrace, and deliver them to locations within the town areas. Drivers will also be trained to perform contactless deliveries and deliver orders directly to a customer’s doorstep, to maintain RedMart’s service standards.
