Russia’s Yandex to launch e-grocery delivery in Paris and London

Yandex has announced it will launch its express e-grocery delivery in Paris and London.

The Russian company said that after its successful roll-out in Russia and Israel, it now plans to expand to France in the second quarter under the Yango Deli brand.

The tech giant said it would also extend its delivery service to London later in the year.

The service delivers around 2,500 types of goods from local warehouses, which the company said arrives within 10 to 15 minutes of receiving an order.

Yandex, which has a network of more than 300 darkstores, has already registered a French company and has started hiring staff for the business.

The company currently operates in the Russian cities of Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, and Kazan under the Yandex.Lavka brand.

It also offers a delivery service in Israel’s greater Tel Aviv area, where its Yango Deli service is the country’s only provider of express e-grocery delivery services. The company launched in Israel in November 2020.

The value of Russia’s online grocery delivery market surged 3.6 times to EUR 1.71 billion in 2020 and is set to expand further to reach as much as EUR 3.31 billion by the end of 2021, according to Infoline research.

“In France, Yandex’s Yango Deli will use the company’s tried and tested model of hyperlocal delivery in 10-15 minutes from darkstores, supported by its proprietary technologies and know-how. It will take orders via its own app,” the company said.
