Indian e-commerce retailer Flipkart has expanded its Flipkart Quick hyperlocal service to six more cities in the country.

The service has been rolled out to Delhi, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida, Hyderabad and Pune.

Launched in Bangalore last year, Flipkart Quick offers customers greater access to products and faster delivery services.

Consumers can order online and take deliveries within 90 minutes, or book a two-hour slot based on their convenience.

The service offers more than 3,000 products in various categories, including fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, meat, grocery, electronics and baby care.

Flipkart Quick uses the company’s investment in Ninjacart and strategic partnerships with other local vendors to provide best quality fruits and vegetables to customers.

The retailer’s strategic logistic partner, Shadowfax, will help in fulfilling last-mile deliveries for Flipkart Quick.

Flipkart vice-president Sandeep Karwa said: “Hyperlocal capabilities are invaluable in enhancing the online shopping experience for consumers and boosting supply chain operations for e-commerce companies. It is important to explore ecosystem partnerships to strengthen such capabilities and accelerate faster, reliable deliveries to customers.

“Flipkart is a customer-centric organisation, and we remain committed to creating solutions that will not only deliver greater value to our customers but also boost local farmers and suppliers and provide a fillip to entrepreneurship.”

The Walmart-owned retailer plans to expand the service other metros and cities, including Kolkata and Mumbai, in a phased manner this year.

Last month, Flipkart expanded its grocery services to more than 50 cities, including seven metro cities and more than 40 neighbouring cities.
