Blueline responds to coronavirus crisis by developing local home delivery app
Newcastle-upon-Tyne-based Blueline Taxis has launched as app-based delivery service that allows customers to choose products from a range of shops and have them delivered to their home via a Blueline car.
The idea has grown from a service delivering essential supplies boxes to vulnerable residents, and this has now evolved into a full-blown delivery service. The Grab delivery app offers delivery of fruit and veg, essential supplies, skincare, protein bars and shakes, meat boxes, snack boxes, pastries and pies, wine, beer and pet food.
A Blueline spokesman said: “Our team has been working relentlessly around the clock and are proud to be launching the North-East’s biggest support network for local businesses and local people during these tough times. Our goal is to keep the North East economy ticking by stimulating trade for local businesses, and also to support the people of the North East by bringing what they need to their door.”
Blueline has already partnered with a wide range of local retailers. Customers can use the Grab app to buy from companies including: Dicksons, Sambuca Restaurants, Oatein, Tyne Bank Brewery Tap, 1901 Caffe Bistro, My Pet HQ, Little Learners Newcastle, Bowers of Newcastle, Templeman Retailing & Vending, The Naked Deli, Freeman Catering, JR Holland Food Services, Clearly Drinks, Newcastle Skin Clinic, Newcastle Gin, Lixir Drinks, Clockwork Espresso, Milligans Bakery, 5th Avenue Flowers and North East Drink Supplies, with more to come.
“As a family ran business, ‘Grab by Blueline’ has our family values at its core. As such, we are partnering with the The Greggs Foundation, which raises around £3 million a year for local causes in the north-east,” said the spokesman.
