Headwinds are forecast for food delivery apps such as DoorDash, Instacart, and Uber Eats.

Is the boom over for food delivery apps like DoorDash, Instacart, Uber Eats, Glovo and Deliveroo? Ian Kerr (Postal Hub Podcast) and Marek Różycki (Last Mile Experts) discuss recent research from the USA:

  • Why food delivery platforms thrived during lockdown
  • Speed of growth during 2020
  • Customer convenience and home delivery of food
  • Changes in customer buying habits
  • Food delivery platforms diversifying, working with supermarkets and other retailers
  • Classification of drivers as employees
  • Will the funds backing gig economy delivery services be deep enough to fund a more expensive delivery model?
  • Scrutiny of gig economy delivery in Australia following deaths
  • “classic” same-day courier services
  • Glovo expansion plans via acquisitions
  • World-class IDM (interactive delivery management)
