Swiggy speeding things up with ‘pods’

November 29, 2019

Indian Food Delivery App, Swiggy plans on establishing ‘micro warehouses’ called ‘pods’ around India to increase the company’s footprint and speed up delivery. Swiggy, COO, Joseph Cherian speaking at Poultry India Knowledge Day 2019, said these would be an expansion of their existing ‘delivery kitchens’ which house clusters of restaurants under one roof. Pods would also hold fresh groceries. Swiggy has 1.5 million riders and is planning to layer their food delivery service with other ‘convenience’ services. “When the supply sector is not expanding fast enough, we need to build it,” said Mr Joseph.
