Mercatus, DoorDash Partner to Bring Enhanced Delivery Options to Retail
Restaurants are't the only ones delivering hot and ready meals. Soon, so will local and regional grocers, thanks to a partnership between Mercatus, a provider in digital solutions for grocery, and third-party delivery service DoorDash.
The solution will empower retailers to not only deliver core grocery items, but also hot & fresh meals to-go, snack & meal catering for larger groups, alcohol and retail goods.
The partnership will enable retailers to offer reliable last-mile delivery while maintaining control of their own branding throughout the customer buying process. Once orders are processed and paid for on the Mercatus platform, DoorDash Drive, the company’s white-label fulfillment platform, will receive order details and dispatch an independent contractor to complete delivery. The delivery experience all occurs under the retailer’s brand to create a consistent purchasing experience for shoppers – delivery can be completed in less than an hour from when the order is placed.
Mercatus-equipped retailers will be able to offer reliable delivery without investing human and technology resources towards implementing their own infrastructure.
