The delivery service will be run independently from the company's postal activities and has launched this week with a dedicated team and a small fleet of specialist refrigerated vehicles. Initially IsleDeliver will be undertaking deliveries for the Channel Islands Cooperative Society and Marks & Spencer, who are both developing their own ordering portals.
Boley Smillie, Chief Executive of Guernsey Post said "We believe there is a strong demand for a reliable grocery delivery service on the Island and we are delighted to be partnering with a number of retailers that will ultimately provide local consumers with good choice and added convenience."
The service has been 'soft launched' this week and customers interested in ordering their groceries online should look out for news from their local retailers.
Boley Smillie continued, "As grocery retailers develop their own online offering, we are ready to expand and provide a bespoke delivery service based on their individual requirements."
