DoorDash announced on Friday that it will establish a partnership with Sam̵
The transaction involves 500 Sam’s Club locations in 41 states and is implemented through Drive. DoorDash provides a platform for companies that want to integrate delivery functions into its own platform. In this case, customers who want to access the service will have to make a request directly through the wholesale club. Both members and non-members of Sam’s Club can take advantage of same-day delivery.
DoorDash chief operating officer Christopher Payne said that going beyond the scope of food delivery has always been part of the company’s mission, but this pandemic highlights the urgency of that day delivery.
Payne said: “This is definitely on the roadmap, and the vision covers this. In many ways, I think DoorDash is designed for this situation.” “Today’s drug delivery is inconvenient. Now, this makes it difficult. We can use the logistics system built through DoorDash Drive to ship it to your door.”
This agreement marks DoorDash’s first large-scale pharmaceutical partnership.
This move is the latest trend that changes rapidly after the pandemic, and applies to same-day delivery platforms such as DoorDash, Instacart, and Postmates, which Uber is acquiring. Since the lockdown measures related to Covid-19 closed many small businesses this spring, delivery companies hope to meet the needs of household customers seeking instant delivery of food, essentials, and retail goods, while also allowing local businesses to sell them through contactless channels. in stock.
“You see this epidemic developing at an accelerated rate, partly caused by the pandemic. As you can imagine, not many customers want to go out, and now they don’t have to. They can stay at home and get Medicines. Take them home immediately.” Payne said.
Just this week, Postmates announced that it will test a new retail channel in Los Angeles to provide same-day clothing, household, beauty and health products. This month, Instacart and Sephora established a partnership, DoorDash and Macy’s reached a new agreement to provide the same day from 500 Macy’s and Bloomingdale stores across the country through the retailer’s online platform. delivery. All three delivery companies have recently established connections with convenience stores and stores 7-11, Walgreens and CVS and other pharmacies to provide household necessities. The expansion of partners beyond restaurants and grocery stores is also an important choice for Amazon Prime shoppers.
The latest data from Edison Trends shows that DoorDash expanded its leading position in food delivery transactions in September, occupying 48% of the market, while Uber Eats and Postmates have a combined share of 35%, an increase of 14% year-on-year.
However, with the rapid changes in the delivery space and the company’s ability to add new partners, DoorDash is always on the move.
Payne said: “This is not to focus on what competitor X or competitor Y is currently doing.” “There are too many opportunities before us. We have developed a strategy since the first day, and I think it motivates us To become a market leader is to have a dialogue with our trading partners.”
