Every day, we get closer to an environment where customers can order any product and get it delivered to their doorstep right away. Companies are launching ‘next-day’ and ‘same-day’ delivery services, and fast, accurate delivery is a key component to a differentiated buying experience.

Successful players have leveraged technology to connect the locally available supply (such as restaurants and grocery stores) with customer demand and provide a seamless delivery experience. Examples include (but are not limited to):

  • Food delivery: Grubhub, UberEats
  • Grocery delivery: Instacart, Shipt
  • General merchandise delivery: Prime Now
  • Pure-play technology providers: Skipcart, Point Pickup
  • Major e-commerce players: Amazon
