Food delivery is an ever growing trend in Qatar with at least 4 different service providers Carriage, Talabat, Rafeek and Zomato as operators.
Snail mail on the other hand is a dying trend over here and diversification of income is vital for Q-post ( Qatar Postal Authority ) if it wants increasing revenue without spending much on infrastructure.
Existing strength for Q-post:
- Q-post’s delivery fleet remains idle after office hours that can be used reducing the need to procure additional vehicles.
- Has several branches around Qatar to act as hubs for drivers/food storage to serve restaurants in the area and drivers wouldn’t have to ‘hang around’ hot spots in the summer
- Follows official mapping and hence is aware of routes, making delivery more accurate.
