The COVID-19 pandemic has forced restaurants and similar food establishments to shift from a mainly dine-in set-up (due to allowed limited capacity per store) to pick-up and delivery as a way to sustain their businesses.
Airspeed, one of the leading logistics companies in the Philippines, introduces SpeedFood–a new backend online delivery platform designed to help food merchants shift to delivery-based enterprise.
Airspeed has invested in logistics technology to able to offer their roster of merchant-focused services. Through SpeedFood, merchants can manage their delivery bookings and statuses. Customers located within an 8 km. radius of SpeedFood clients who order food via text, call or online can readily be served by dedicated SpeedFood riders. Apart from delivery, SpeedFood also offers payment gateway options; creation of a website with an online ordering capability connected to an online payment gateway and delivery; and, other combinations of services that food businesses may require. SpeedFood offers a platform that will help food merchants scale up. By using these for customers’ orders, SpeedFood is able to forego charging delivery commission, and food merchants only get to pay for the SpeedFood delivery fee. For deliveries, aside from the usual payment gateways of the tenants, SpeedFood also accepts Cash on Delivery.
To date, SpeedFood has more than 50 partner restaurants situated in 12 different locations. Airspeed is geared to expand the SpeedFood service to the areas of Davao, Cebu and Clark.
