Foodpanda to provide third party logistics services

Jun 16, 2017: Restaurants can use Foodpanda delivery services even for the orders which have not come through the foodpanda channel as the online food ordering and delivery firm decided to provide third party logistics services to its restaurants across major cities.

The initiative is now live across Delhi, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Pune and Bangalore, foodpanda said in a statement.

Commenting on the development, foodpanda India CEO Saurabh Kochhar said, "With our new delivery product offering, we intend to be significant support system for our partners by easing hassle of delivery for them and extend best-in-class service levels to more customers."

The partner restaurants can avail offerings wherein all orders would be fulfilled by the brand's delivery riders. They would also have another option where restaurants can take up customised service on a need to need basis.

The brand which has more than 500 partner restaurants and expects to reach around 1500 in the next three months, said the restaurants would be charged on a per order basis.
