- Swiggy Go can be used to pick up laundry, get forgotten keys, send lunch boxes from home to office
- It can even be used to deliver parcels or documents to clients
Major food delivery platform Swiggy has come up with instant pick up and drop service Swiggy Go to send packages anywhere across the city. According to the company, Swiggy Go can be used to pick up and drop laundry, papers, parcels, forgotten keys lunch boxes and more.
Swiggy Go will be part of the main application just like the Swiggy Stores that promises to deliver groceries, flowers, medicines and other things to user’s doorstep within an hour.
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,” CEO Sriharsha Majety, said in a statement.
Swiggy has also said that it will expand its on-demand delivery service—Swiggy Stores—to Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
The company has tied up with close to 200 merchant-partners like Ratnadeep, Ghanshyam, Sneha Chicken, Yellow and Greens and 24 Organic Mantra, in Hyderabad, in addition to delivering from any store a customer chooses in the city.
This comes weeks after the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) had asked food delivery platforms Zomato, Swiggy, Uber Eats and Food Panda to do away with deep discounts while addressing other issues.
The association, in letters written to all major online delivery aggregators, has said that during its interaction with restaurant operators, it was observed that operators displayed strong resentment at the current status of transparency, forced discounting, uneven commission structure and general high-handedness of aggregators in the food delivery space.
Talking about Swiggy Go: “Bengaluru will be the first city in the country to experience Swiggy do the 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,” Majety added.
