Flipkart partners with Meru to deliver essentials & groceries

Flipkart has partnered with app-based ride-hailing operator Meru to deliver essentials and groceries to customers. The service has been launched in Bangalore, Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad.

The service will not only enable Flipkart customers to get doorstep delivery of essential items, but it is also said to help provide income opportunities to Meru's driver partners.

Flipkart claims to have setup a sanitized supply chain in order to prevent infections. Dispatch hubs have been installed with 'Ozone Air Purifier'.

All cabs used for the delivery of essential goods will be Ozone sanitized. Meru driver partners have also been asked to sanitize their cabs and maintain high standards of hygiene by using hand sanitisers and face masks. Drivers will also undergo training to better understand Flipkart's delivery processes.
