This week, Carrefour and Glove have announced the partnership in the four countries, with exclusive rights in France. As a result, consumers can get their online order significantly fast, seven days a week. They choose from 2,500 products on the Glove platform, after which its couriers collect orders prepared in a Carrefour Market, Carrefour City or Carrefour Express.
Carrefour wants to become leader in food ecommerce
Glovo, founded in Spain in 2015, has a fleet of couriers, who deliver the products to Carrefour’s customers by bicycle or scooter approximately 30 minutes after the order was placed. With the announced partnership, Glovo wants to further develop its grocery segment and expand its presence in Europe and abroad. Carrefour on the other hand, wants to use this new delivery service to develop an extensive omnichannel model and become the leader in food ecommerce.
Results from the partnership will be visible by early October at the latest. Paris, Sevilla, Valencia, Milan and Rome will be among the first cities in Europe to launch the 30-minute delivery service. Other cities will follow in the coming months.
