Jumbo Commences Home Delivery Of Online Orders In Amsterdam

Dutch retailer Jumbo has announced that it will now offer home delivery services for online orders in the central areas of Amsterdam.

The purchases, ordered through or the Jumbo app, will be delivered via specially developed, CO2 emission-free Jumbo electric street scooters.

Customers can also opt for one or two-hour delivery of orders.

Sustainability Goals

As well as offering convenience, the service will also contribute to the retailer's sustainability goals, it said.

The orders will be delivered from one central distribution point, thereby reducing the number of vehicles on the road.

Jumbo is aiming to cut CO2 emissions from transport by 50% by 2020, when compared with 2008.

Mobile Supermarkets

In order to create awareness about the new service, the retailer has converted its electric delivery vans into mobile supermarkets.

Customers can scan the QR codes on groceries displayed on these stationary delivery vans and add them to their online shopping cart.
