Food delivery boomed in 2020, with the trend set to continue well into next year. But the sector comes with its own unique set of challenges, including:
A highly local and time-sensitive supply chain: restaurants and retailers have to prepare an order, ship it and hand it over to the customer in a very short time span (usually 30 minutes to an hour).
Last mile logistics: you obviously can’t leave perishable goods in a mailbox or on a doorstop in the sun. Successful delivery involves careful coordination between retailer and consumer.
Food quality: soggy fries followed by melted ice-cream isn’t anyone’s idea of a good meal. Delivery companies have to work to ensure food is delivered in perfect condition.
Recyclability: food delivery usually calls for a certain amount of disposable packaging materials. Unfortunately, traditional food multi-layer packaging containing aluminum and foil are difficult to recycle.
