Tesco begins trialing new service to help deliver food shopping in just one hour

05/27/2021

A new rapid delivery service could be rolled out to Tesco customers.

The new rapid "Whoosh" delivery service is currently being tested out in the Midlands.

And if the trial is successful, the supermarket giant could bring out the service to other parts of the UK.

The one-hour delivery is available for shoppers who live near its Wolverhampton Willenhall Express store.

Tesco said its customers can order the service through its app or Tesco.com, with products delivered by bike, moped or car for £5.

There is also an additional £2 charge if you spend under £15.

A quick delivery is 50p more expensive than the flat-rate £4.50 charge on most other orders.

There is also normally an extra £4 charge from Tesco is you spend under £40 on your shopping.

Orders from its customer fulfilment centres are charged at £5.50 and there is the same £40 minimum spend.

During the pandemic, Tesco added hundreds of thousands of extra slots as more shoppers began using the service.

It's no surprise that online services have seen a spike in recent months due to coronavirus.
