Grab has expanded its grocery-delivery service GrabMart into eight Southeast Asian markets within the last three months.
Initially launched in two countries as an on-demand daily essentials delivery service during the Covid-19 pandemic, GrabMart is now available in 50 cities across eight Southeast Asian countries, including Myanmar and Cambodia.
“Covid-19 has accelerated the adoption of on-demand delivery services across Southeast Asia, and we were able to tap on existing technologies, our extensive delivery network, and operational footprint to quickly scale GrabMart across the region,” said Demi Yu, regional head of GrabFood and GrabMart.
The delivery company has teamed with more than 3000 stores and supermarkets in the region including FairPrice Xpress in Singapore, Lawson in the Philippines and FamilyMart in other countries.
In Indonesia and Malaysia, GrabMart partnered with traditional market operators, delivering fresh produce from several market stalls in a single order to customers’ doors.
“In a post-Covid-19 normal, we anticipate demand for grocery-delivery services to remain elevated. We will continue to double down on expanding our GrabMart service to support consumers’ shopping needs,” she said.
