Asda launches one-hour delivery service

Asda has become the first UK supermarket to launch an express one-hour delivery service for its full online range.

The service is available at three Asda stores this week following a successful trial. Customers will have access to over 30,000 grocery items for delivery in 60 minutes.

Customers living within a three-mile radius of the Halifax, Rotherham and Poole stores can order up to 70 items from Asda.com for Express Delivery within an hour.

They can also order a larger basket and select a slot within the next four hours, with no limit on the number of items able to be purchased.

Asda said it would potentially roll out the service to more stores if it proves popular with customers.

Express Delivery customers will be able to track the progress of their order from store to doorstep in real time.

Each delivery will be charged at the flat rate of £8.50 and there is no minimum spend per basket.

In addition to launching a new Express Delivery service, Asda is also extending its partnership with Uber Eats from 200 to more than 300 stores, offering customers the opportunity to shop a range of 500 products including fruit, vegetables, beer, wine and spirits and meal solutions for rapid delivery.

“After successfully trialling an Express Delivery service, we know this is something that our customers want as part of our online grocery proposition and we are delighted to be able to offer this service to even more customers,” said Simon Gregg, Asda’s vice president of online grocery. “The launch of our new Express Delivery service and extension of our existing partnership with Uber Eats to 300 stores means that customers can get their order delivered to the doorstep at market-leading pace.”
