Carrefour has extended the agreement it has with Glovo since the summer of last year to Carrefour Express supermarkets located at Cepsa service stations. In a first phase, 150 Carrefour Express located at these fuel stations have been selected to develop this service.
Likewise, the agreement also allows Glovo to strengthen its presence and to better satisfy the tastes and needs of the users of the app, a simple and efficient tool for consumers who make online supermarket purchases.
Last December Carrefour and Glovo announced the expansion of this alliance to nine more cities in Spain (Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao, Valladolid, Palma, Granada, San Sebastián, Córdoba and Alicante), after launching a pilot experience in Seville and Valencia .
This alliance allows customers to benefit from deliveries in less than 30 minutes seven days a week. The user chooses from a range of 2,500 fresh, basic grocery items and a selection of everyday non-food items such as health, beauty and home cleaning.
But Carrefour is not the only distributor that has entered into a collaboration agreement with Glovo. On March 30, Grupo DIA announced an alliance with the delivery company, with the aim of expanding its online business. Both companies agreed to collaborate to deliver orders at home from a network of 500 DIA stores located throughout the Spanish geography.
On the other hand, Carrefour has also expanded its alliance with home delivery companies, since, in addition to Glovo, it has also recently started a collaboration with Uber Eats in France to meet the needs of consumers who are confined to their homes by the coronavirus crisis.
