Barry Asda to offer one-hour delivery on full range

A VALE supermarket will be offering a one-hour express delivery service.

The service will allow customers to make an order online – from the full range of products – and get delivery within one hour if they live in a three-mile radius of the store and order up to 70 items.

Asda in Barry will be offering the service after a successful summer trial saw the company expand into 96 more stores.

Each delivery will cost £8.50, no matter how many items are ordered.

In the summer, a trial took place in Halifax, Poole, Rotherham and St Matthews in Walsall which saw use of the service increase on predicted numbers.


Simon Gregg, Asda’s vice president of online grocery, said: “We are rolling out our express delivery service to almost 100 stores after a trial showed there was a clear gap in the market for a speedy delivery service offering our full online product range for delivery within one hour.

“As the only grocer to offer this service, we have seen a significant number of customers access this option, with slots regularly selling out at our pilot stores.”

The company hope to extend this to more stores if this current stage of the rollout is successful.

Asda have also extended its partnership with Uber Eats to more than 300 stores, but the number of products available through this service is much smaller.

Asda have also recently announced a partnership with tech firm Wayve to test driverless vans.
