FreshDirect’s sales have risen as the pandemic has pushed more consumers to shop for groceries online and eat most of their meals at home. Many people are visiting stores less frequently, augmenting those trips with online purchases from companies including FreshDirect, Amazon.com Inc.’s Whole Foods Market chain or Instacart Inc. tvj世界播

FreshDirect的销售额有所上升,因为疫情促使更多的消费者在网上购买食品杂货,并在家中就餐。许多人减少了光顾商店的频率,增加了从FreshDirect、亚马逊(Amazon.com Inc.)旗下全食超市(Whole Foods Market Chain)或Insta Inc.等公司在线购物的次数。tvj世界播

FreshDirect is profitable today, said CEO David McInerney. San Francisco-based Instacart, one of the biggest grocery delivery companies, last month raised $200 million, giving it a valuation of $17.7 billion. The venture capital-backed company said its valuation has more than doubled since the start of the year, and that its order volume and workforce have increased. tvj世界播

FreshDirect首席执行官大卫·麦金纳尼(David McInerney)表示,FreshDirect今天实现盈利。总部位于旧金山的Insta是最大的食品杂货快递公司之一,上个月筹集了2亿美元,使其估值达到177亿美元。这家风险资本支持的公司表示,自今年年初以来,其估值已经翻了一番以上,订单数量和员工人数都有所增加。tvj世界播

Many grocers are relying on Instacart and other outside companies to pack and deliver orders. Some supermarkets are building small, automated warehouses near their stores to prepare online orders. tvj世界播


But making delivery profitable remains challenging. Retailers have said online purchases tend to be less profitable than those in stores because of the extra expenses associated with filling, packaging and delivering orders. Some are giving priority to store-pickup orders over delivery orders. tvj世界播
