Asda expands one-hour express delivery service

Asda has announced it will extend its one-hour express delivery service to 96 store locations after a successful trial in June.

The express delivery service gives Asda customers access to its full online range which includes over 30,000 grocery products for delivery within an hour.

There will be a fixed delivery fee of £8.50 regardless of the size of the order.

The news follows the successful trial that Asda put on in Halifax, Poole, Rotherham and St Matthews, Walsall in the summer.

Asda has also recently extended its partnership with delivery company Uber Eats to over 300 stores, however the number of products accessible is much smaller.

“We are rolling out our express delivery service to almost 100 stores after a trial showed there was a clear gap in the market for a speedy delivery service offering our full online product range for delivery within one hour,” Asda vice president of grocery Simon Gregg said.

“As the only grocer to offer this service, we have seen a significant number of customers access this option, with slots regularly selling out at our pilot stores.”

Gregg also made a point of bringing up the latest announcement that the grocer has partnered with Wayve to test its driverless vans.
