How is Growing Inclination towards Doorstep Delivery Bolstering Industry Growth?

With the Internet taking over the world, people have become more habituated with online services, including grocery delivery. Furthermore, the unprecedented impacts of COVID-19 indirectly favored industry players due to sudden surge in demand for online grocery delivery services, especially in 2020.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is likely to be low risk of COVID spreading from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of time.

Furthermore, technical advancements and digitization have enabled people in gaining access to a flurry of convenient online services such as delivery apps and websites. This, in turn, has been encouraging people to fall back on online grocery delivery services since the past few years.
