As a pan-European fit out company, we’re proud to bring the ideas of some of the continent’s most exciting and forward-thinking brands to life – and none more so than ten-minute grocery delivery service, Dija.
The emerging tech trailblazer launched in the UK to much success earlier this year, and – as part of its ambitious growth plans – we’re proud to have supported the distribution disruptor’s recent expansion into Paris, too.
Central to Dija’s success are its small warehouses which are strategically placed in cities’ neighbourhoods to ensure the rapid distribution of goods within the tight timeframe that it promises – and our work formed part of one such roll out.
Agilité provided a variety of professional and construction services to create a Parisian hub – which now contains more than 2,000 products, ready to be dispatched to online shoppers across the city’s central neighbourhoods, including Montmartre and Le Marais.
“Wherever you point your finger on a map, the issues with buying groceries are the same: long delivery times, missing items, substitutes, and queues,” said Alberto Menolascina, co-founder and CEO of Dija in the initial press release.
“Our hyper-local approach, combined with our leading technology, solves all of these problems at once. France and Spain mark the first steps in our expansion journey, but we are already in the process of expanding to multiple new markets. We want to be a global business servicing tens of millions of customers worldwide.”
Kirsty Shearer, development director at Agilité Solutions added: “We’re seeing a seismic shift in the shopping habits of people across Europe – particularly within the capital cities. The desire to want something and expectation to be able to have it in your hands in mere minutes is certainly shaping what consumers expect from online retailers.
“We’ve been looking closely at how consumer attitudes to bricks and mortar stores compare with online shopping recently – therefore its interesting for us to be involved in creating the infrastructure needed to support these challenger brands.”
