Following the news last month that M&S had bought 50% of Ocado, the online supermarket and delivery service is now trialling a one-hour delivery service with Stuart delivery fleet.
The new service, named Ocado Zoom, has been created in response to customer demand.
It can be accessed by residents of West London and caters to smaller order sizes.
There are 10,000 SKUs available to choose from, and orders can be delivered within the hour, or later the same day, with delivery slots subject to availability. There is a minimum order value of £15, and delivery charges are applied at the checkout.
Environmentally friendly delivery
The one-hour grocery delivery is powered by Stuart that offers a variety of deliver methods, from bikes to cars to ensure the delivery arrives promptly.
Founded in 2015, Stuart’s technology is integrated with Ocado’s ordering process to ensure the best suited delivery method is used for each job.
David Saenz, chief operating officer at Stuart, said, “By bringing together both companies’ cutting-edge technologies, we have built a service which facilitates the grocery shopping experience and gives consumers quicker and more flexible access to grocery shopping, matching their own fast-paced lives. This sector is quickly evolving, and we are excited to be at the forefront of it.”
