The express delivery excludes outlying districts like Binh Chanh, Hoc Mon, Cu Chi and Can Gio. Goods will be delivered by sellers and received by buyers through GrabExpress employees. Grab Vietnam General Director Jerry Lim said that the cooperation with HCMC-based ecommerce portal Sendo.vn will bring the advantages of added convenience, goods security and rapid delivery for buyers and sellers. Goods ordered by customers on Sendo.vn will be delivered to them using GrabExpress. Tran Hai Linh, general director of Sen Do Technology JSC, said the company’s priority was to create favorable conditions for retailers, small firms and online sellers to distribute their products to consumers nationwide. The deal with GrabExpress will help shorten delivery time. Customers who order products marked “three-hour delivery” on Sendo.vn will be entitled to free delivery on orders worth VND99,000 or more. Currently, delivery time depends on the recipients’ and sellers’ addresses. Inner-city goods delivery typically takes one to two days, but the delivery time can reach three to seven days if buyers and sellers live in different provinces, districts or cities.
