Pakistan’s largest and most reliable food delivery platform, foodpanda, has launched its on-demand rider service for businesses in Pakistan, which will be available in more than 40 cities nationwide.
Introduced as ‘pandago’, this service will enable vendors to request a rider on demand, through the website.
The service is available to all businesses, regardless of whether they are listed on the foodpanda platform.
Possessing a fleet of more than 20,000 riders, this service ensures an average delivery time of less than 25 minutes for each order.
Businesses requiring package-delivery services will now be able to request a rider via a pandago account on a pay-per-use basis.
Delivery fees of the service is distance-based and charged over a base fee of Rs65.
With no additional onboarding and commission fees, the service can also be used as an emergency solution for businesses with existing delivery capacities during demand surge periods.
With foodpanda’s strong logistical network in place, pandago will allow vendors to focus on growing their business, catering to a larger customer base while ensuring seamless deliveries.
Every customer who signs up for the service will have access to a real time tracking system that will help them manage their transactions and ensure transparency.
To ensure complete convenience on the vendors' end, the process has been tailored to remain simple, efficient and easy-to-use.
As soon as a vendor receives an order via any channel, they can request for a rider on pandago. While they focus on preparing their order, foodpanda's rider will arrive to collect and deliver it to the customer's pin location.
