Due to the rapid spread of the deadly coronavirus across the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) has suggested people to stay in their respective homes as a safety measure to combat the pandemic.
In this regard, the country's top e-commerce-based marketplace Evaly has started delivering daily commodities and other necessary products to the people staying at homes, said a press release.
Recently, the company announced that it was going to launch a new campaign titled 'Evaly Express Shop', a home-delivery service, for customers. The company officially launched the service on March 24.
However, raw products like fish and meat will not be brought under this service.
Customers could receive their products between a one-hour to 36-hour period after the submission of order, the press release read.
Mohammad Rassel, managing director and chief executive officer of Evaly said, "Our platform contains over 18 lakh subscribers and about 25 thousand dealers. A significant number of those dealers sell the grocery items or essential products."
"Besides, many corporate companies those produce such products and supply those in the retail market also belong to our chain. Considering the ongoing crisis, we want to utilise this huge resource for the greater interest of people," he said.
The company said that it plans to open eight express shops in Dhaka and another 50 outlets across the country within the next two or three days, the press release read.
