Carrefour customers in Paris and Neuilly-sur-Seine can now access an "ultra-fast delivery service" offering one-hour fulfilment on around 2,000 items.

The service has been trialled since October 2016 in around ten Paris districts, allowing shoppers to select a 30-minute delivery slot.  Delivery costs €4.90 and there is no minimum purchase amount.

The product mix available is similar to what customers will find in a town-centre supermarket, including fresh produce, groceries and a few daily-use non-food goods covering health & beauty and household items.

Consumers using the service will soon have the option of tracking their deliveries in real time via an Express Delivery mobile app. Deliveries can be scheduled for between 9am and 10pm Monday to Saturday, and they are fulfilled by French start-up, Stuart.

Stuart is a delivery service specialising in deliveries by bike and cargo bike, and it recently launched in the UK working alongside fast food chain, Burger King.
