foodpanda expands q-commerce in Asia with MUJI, IKEA, Lawson, Tesco and Watsons

By lynette,

SINGAPORE — 8 December 2020 — Portable aroma diffusers, over-the-counter medicine, and Swedish meatballs — anything you need, delivered within 30 minutes. With foodpanda shops, consumers are able to get anything they need delivered to their doorsteps quickly and conveniently, as foodpanda shops now offers products from the region’s leading retailers including MUJI, IKEA, Lawson, Tesco and Watsons.

foodpanda launched its first shops in Singapore in October 2019 with 1,000 retail partners. One year later, foodpanda shops now hosts almost 25,000 retail stores across the 12 markets in Asia, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Taiwan, Philippines, Bangladesh, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Japan. Categories of retailers that can be found on foodpanda shops range from convenience stores, neighbourhood mom-and-pop stores, pharmacies, supermarkets and household and fashion retailers.

The roll-out of foodpanda shops was accelerated in the first half of 2020, as more consumers relied on home deliveries for food, daily essentials and more, while coping with movement restrictions during the pandemic. At the same time, retail stores were hard-hit across the region as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns. Food and grocery deliveries provided a lifeline not only for consumers but also enabled traditional retailers and restaurants to digitalise to stay open and in business during this critical time.

“Retailers who had previously established online e-commerce and delivery models continued to uplevel their delivery models so more customers can gain access to essentials and lifestyle products quickly and conveniently,” said Jakob Angele, CEO of foodpanda. “Beyond COVID-19, a new consumer shopping habit-shift and reliance on quick commerce and delivery will continue to trend, so we’ve worked hard to ensure we bring on as many well-loved household names onto the foodpanda platform as possible.”

Earlier this month, foodpanda marked a new milestone by adding more than 2,500 7-Eleven stores on its platform, making 7-Eleven available to foodpanda customers in Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Growing q-commerce with expanded list of retail partners across Asia

As a pioneer in quick commerce, or q-commerce, foodpanda is using technology to better the lives of their customers. With a dual focus on growing its core food delivery business as well as q-commerce offerings, the introduction of these retail brands enhances retail selections for millions of customers across Asia. Through each and every delivery, the platform is digitalising the delivery experience for retail- and restaurant-partners, and riders, creating greater economic opportunities and value to the communities.

New retail partners now available on foodpanda shops:

MUJI
The foodpanda partnership is MUJI’s first-ever collaboration with an on-demand delivery platform. Launched in October in Taiwan, up to 800 items including MUJI snacks, household items like aroma diffusers, essential oils, toiletries and even handy essentials like screwdriver sets and cleaning equipment can now be delivered to consumers quickly and easily within 30 minutes! MUJI is also available on the foodpanda Hong Kong app.

IKEA
A first for the IKEA brand — a range of crowd favourites from IKEA’s iconic Swedish Food Market like meatballs, potatoes au gratin, salmon products and a selection of cheeses, coffee and tea are now available for deliveries for consumers in Singapore, so they can skip the crowd and satisfy their cravings in the comforts of home.

Lawson
Following the successful launch of foodpanda in Japan in September 2020, the platform has since onboarded Lawson convenience stores in Sapporo and Fukuoka as it progressively expands to other cities across Japan. The partnership makes ready-to-eat meals like Lawson’s signature karaage-kun fried chicken to snacks and beverages available for quick and convenient deliveries. Lawson is also available on foodpanda shops in both Taiwan and Thailand.

Tesco
Tesco joins an on-demand delivery platform for the first time with its partnership in Malaysia. From November 2020, consumers can enjoy greater accessibility and convenience, with more than 3,000 unique items from fresh produce to other household essentials available for doorstep deliveries.

Watsons
Watsons, one of Asia’s leading health and beauty retailers, has inked a partnership with foodpanda, rolling out in phases across the region from November 2020, beginning in Malaysia. This brings thousands of Watsons stores onto the platform, so consumers will be able to purchase over-the-counter medication, vitamins, healthcare needs and more without having to leave their homes.

Tesco and foodpanda partners for customers’ greater convenience

By lynette,

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 November 2020: In delivering greater convenience to customers, Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is now the country’s first major retailer to partner with the on-demand international delivery service provider, foodpanda Malaysia. Through this partnership, customers will be able to order up to 3,000 items ranging from fresh produce to groceries and have it delivered within 40 minutes.

This partnership will further strengthen Tesco’s online presence namely through its own grocery home shopping platform, Tesco Online.

“No one tries harder for customers than we do, here in Tesco. Over the years we have work in bringing accessibility to customers through our network of 62 stores nationwide, as well as value and variety through our range of Tesco Own Brand items that are generally cheaper than national brands,” said Product Director, Kenneth Chuah.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic, customers have begun to change the way they shop. Many are looking for options where they can feel safe to purchase their necessities. This partnership with foodpanda will not only be convenient for Tesco’s loyal customers, but it will also help to address those who are concerned with having to leave the safety and comfort of their homes for a grocery run,” continued Chuah.

“Quick commerce (or q-commerce) is the next-generation of e-commerce – it provides ultra-fast deliveries, with delivery times as fast as 40 minutes of ordering from an affiliated store. We have now entered the era of quick commerce, alongside a parallel shift in consumer lifestyles and preferences all across the globe. Speed and convenience is becoming more important than ever before,” said Sayantan Das, Managing Director, foodpanda Malaysia.

He added, “Our partnership with Tesco enables us to grow our services together for our customers and offer them convenience for their changing needs. Especially since people are encouraged to stay home, we are very happy to be working with a partner like Tesco to be able to offer customers the convenience of speed and effortless ordering across Malaysia.”

Klang Valley customers can now use foodpanda’s platform to order from Tesco Paradigm Mall, Kepong, Extra Cheras, Extra Puchong, Bandar Puteri Bangi, Kajang, Bukit Puchong, Shah Alam, Wangsa Walk, Setia Alam and Selayang Tesco is also aiming to expand with foodpanda into other parts of Malaysia later in the year. Customers from Melaka would then be able to order through foodpanda from Tesco Peringgit Melaka and Melaka Cheng; Negri Sembilan (Tesco Extra Seremban Jaya), Perak (Tesco Ipoh and Station 18); Penang (Tesco Penang and Bukit Mertajam) and Johor (Tesco Extra Tebrau City).

A collaborative study by Facebook and Bain & Company titled ‘Digital Consumers of Tomorrow, Here Today’ published in August 2020 noted that Malaysia’s percentage of digital consumers is at 83 percent, with 48 percent swapping to purchasing online in the past year.

Malaysia’s online grocery shopping also recorded the highest growth in online retail penetration in 2020 since 2018, propelled by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic with consumers now going online for packaged groceries, fresh groceries and non-alcoholic drinks.

foodpanda Hong Kong expresses gratitude to couriers with little gifts

By lynette,

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Hong Kong, there has been high demand for food and grocery delivery services. In order to express our gratitude to the hardworking couriers who ensure that all customers’ orders are met, foodpanda has set up “Power Up Spots” at all 10 of our pandamart locations to offer drinks and snacks (including Vita Pure Distilled Water, BE-KIND Snack Bars and Pacific Saltine Soda Crackers) to the fleet, helping them to fuel their day. foodpanda will set up these spots more regularly in the future to give away little gifts to couriers as tokens of appreciation.

On the other hand, foodpanda also distributed special gift sets to the couriers for Mid-Autumn Festival, including mini custard mooncakes made by a local popular bakery Say Hey Bakery, as well as a portable fan and a collapsible umbrella. foodpanda hopes that these gifts could bring happiness to them during the festive holiday.

Given the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, foodpanda is planning to carry out another round of face masks and hand sanitizer distribution to couriers. We will continue to remind our couriers to follow our stringent guidelines when completing a delivery, such as wearing a face mask at all times, and sanitizing their hands and thermal bags regularly, so as to protect their health and safety as well as that of our customers.

foodpanda launches in Japan, starting with six inaugural cities across the country

By lynette,

  • foodpanda, the leading food delivery network across Asia Pacific, further extends its
    leadership position in the region with the launch in Japan, one of Asia’s biggest markets

  • This is foodpanda’s 12th market in Asia

  • Launching across six cities in the coming weeks, foodpanda partners businesses across
    Kobe, Yokohama, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Hiroshima, making food and grocery
    delivery accessible to all households

  • As consumers seek greater choice and convenience, foodpanda will invest to grow “q-commerce” in Japan, delivering groceries and daily essentials beyond food within 25mins

 

JAPAN, 17 September 2020 – foodpanda, the leading food delivery network in Asia Pacific, today announced its launch in Japan, with a focus on expanding choice, speed and service for both consumers and businesses across the country. foodpanda begins its roll-out in Japan with six cities in the first phase – Kobe, Yokohama, Nagoya from 17th September 2020 and Sapporo, Fukuoka and Hiroshima from 1st October 2020 – where it will offer delivery services for food, groceries and more at the touch of a button.

Since its establishment in 2012, foodpanda has grown to be a leading food delivery network, operating in more than 300 cities in 11 markets in both mature and developing markets across Asia Pacific. Japan is foodpanda’s 12th market as it continues to expand its footprint in the region. foodpanda is a subsidiary of German food delivery firm Delivery Hero (ETR: DHER), the world’s largest food delivery network outside China. In Q2 2020, Delivery Hero reported a 166% increase in gross merchandise value (GMV) in its APAC operations and 44% increase in orders. Delivery Hero had also reported a new milestone of four million orders delivered globally in a single day.

According to Statista, the online food delivery segment in Japan is expected to show a revenue growth of 23.6% in 2020, a spike from the 14.4% growth seen in 2019. User penetration in Japan stands at 16.6%, compared to other markets in the region like Singapore (41%) and Hong Kong (36.7%), and holds further growth potential as COVID-19 increases consumer demand for safe and convenient doorstep deliveries for food and daily essentials.

“Amidst the ongoing pandemic, foodpanda has played an especially critical role in helping businesses stay viable, and grow through the new digital needs faced by the food and groceries industries across Asia. In the first half of 2020, we expedited onboarding and doubled the number of merchants and riders on our platform across the region so their businesses can survive the economic impact, while rider partners can continue to earn a living.” says Jakob Sebastian Angele, CEO, APAC at foodpanda.

Through heavy investments and a focus on technology, foodpanda has scaled rapidly to serve the markets affected by COVID-19 and help businesses digitalize to grow amidst a changing consumer landscape. foodpanda Japan will begin its operations in six selected cities, with the goal to further expand to more cities, targeted to be in the double digits by the end of 2020. By partnering with small, medium restaurants and grocery businesses as well as larger national partners, foodpanda offers a new platform that helps bring many of these businesses online for greater customer reach, and increased revenue.

“Today, we are extremely excited to launch in Japan to offer a strong platform that provides greater choice, speed and service to consumers and businesses in Japan. This is a market we have long admired, and this market expansion is an important step in making food and grocery delivery accessible to everyone in Asia,” says Eric Wei, CEO, foodpanda Japan.

Accelerating “q-commerce”, powered by technology

foodpanda will launch in Japan with a dual focus on growing its core food delivery business, as well as its quick-commerce, or q-commerce offerings where it partners with local retailers to provide daily essentials beyond food. q-commerce represents the next generation of e-commerce, where consumers are able to purchase their necessities on-demand, to be delivered within 25 minutes. In addition, the foodpanda app will also offer a pick-up feature where consumers are able to collect their orders personally in-store.

Building on almost a decade of experience operating in a diverse and complex region as well as heavy investment in technology, foodpanda places a strong emphasis on operational excellence to provide a best-in-class service to our ecosystem of consumers, vendors and riders. In recent months, foodpanda had expedited the roll-out of tech features such as enabling contactless deliveries by default for a safer delivery experience. For new riders in Japan, safety is a big priority and foodpanda has included training as part of the onboarding process.

foodpanda takes to the skies with pandaFly

By lynette,

Singapore, 13 August 2020 – Pandas may soon fly! foodpanda, Singapore’s leading delivery platform, has reached greater heights of food delivery with pandaFly, which completed its drone delivery test flight this morning. Joining hands with global technology, defence and engineering group, ST Engineering, an order of 5 packets of Ayam Penyet (“smashed” fried chicken) was delivered from Marina South Pier to PACC Offshore Services Holdings (POSH) Vessel, located 3km off the pier, in under ten minutes.

Increasingly, customers will want to be able to buy anything, from anywhere, and receive them immediately – all within the tap of a few buttons. With drones, foodpanda intends to meet these demands by making long-distance deliveries better, faster, and cheaper for all. In the last five years, delivery times have gone from 60 minutes to under 30 minutes and now, quite possibly less than 15 minutes! This latest flight test demonstrated by ST Engineering using its DroNet solution proves that it’s possible to simultaneously deliver longer distances and cut delivery times by yet another half. Imagine placing an order for Changi Village Nasi Lemak and receiving the piping hot meal in Jurong within 15 minutes with minimal delivery fee!

Intended as a complement to our pandariders, the drones will ideally be able to pick up and deliver orders at designated collection points located islandwide where one of foodpanda’s 12,000 riders will be waiting to complete the last-mile delivery. This means that customers can still expect the familiarity of our pandariders delivering piping hot meals right to their doorsteps.

“Delivering with drones has always been part of our long-term plan, and to see our foodpanda box up in the air today takes us a big step forward to be the first food delivery platform that makes drone deliveries a reality. Much more than a novelty, drone deliveries will help us deliver over longer distances faster, while keeping costs low, so that we can continue to satisfy our customers more instantaneously.” said Luc Andreani, Managing Director of foodpanda Singapore.

Working with leading Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions provider to make drone deliveries a reality In March this year, foodpanda inked a partnership with ST Engineering to adapt its DroNet solution to trial the delivery of light food items over short distances of up to 3km. DroNet is an end-to-end drone network solution designed to carry out specific tasks or services autonomously in an urban environment.

One of the leading players in the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry, ST Engineering has been working closely with regulators and industry partners to develop solutions that make use of the latest smart and unmanned technologies for military and commercial applications. ST Engineering received authorisation granted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) for the use of UAS to perform the proof of concept delivery exercise. In the next phase following today’s test flight, foodpanda and ST Engineering will be looking to test drones that can fly further and for longer durations.

Jeffrey Lam, Deputy President of ST Engineering’s Aerospace sector said, “In our latest flight exercise, we are pleased to collaborate with foodpanda to adapt our drone network solution to realise a faster and cost-efficient method in food deliveries, one that can also help meet the need for safe distancing under the current COVID-19 situation. With a growing list of potential customers and collaborators which include Wilhelmsen Ships Service for shore-to-ship parcel deliveries, we are able to make significant advancements in applying DroNet to meet real-world problems, and help end-users such as foodpanda to introduce game-changing enhancements to their operations and services.”

The future of drone deliveries is now. Drones will make it possible to deliver things not delivered before, to places that were previously inaccessible. As technology advances, there is no doubt that drones will continue to drive innovation for many industries – including food delivery.

“The usage of drones is an area that POSH is actively studying as part of our innovation roadmap. We are therefore pleased to partner foodpanda and ST Engineering in this test flight, which offers a glimpse of what is possible. There is still much work to be done to fully enable shore to ship drone delivery over longer haul distances. POSH will continue to work with suitable partners so as to bring a taste of home to our seafarers onboard, in time to come.” said Danny Chong, General Manager, COE (Innovation), POSH.

With the support of cross-industry partners such as POSH who hosted the test flight, foodpanda is positioned to champion yet another industry-first with the aim of meeting the needs of all our customers, wherever they are.
