April 3, 2020 – Every crisis is also an opportunity. Thus, Europe’s leading on-demand transportation platform saw its opportunity to introduce a new service – Bolt Delivery.

HRTurizam writes that Bolt launched a new service in Croatia, Bolt Delivery, which is a new delivery service in Zagreb, Split, Rijeka, Osijek, Zadar and Dubrovnik.

Bolt Delivery is ideal for shipments that need to be delivered on the same day, and even within just one hour, such as clothing, books, home supplies, game consoles, documents, and whatever you need to send.

Shipments should be lighter than 20 kg and within the given dimensions up to a maximum of 65x55x40 cm. For security, the service will be available only to those who have a valid bank card in their application because cash payment will not be possible. The minimum delivery cost is 20 kuna for all cities.

“On the one hand, we will take advantage of existing technology and a large network of Bolt drivers across Croatia and enable users to stay safe inside their home, at a time when the majority of the population is forced to do so. And on the other hand, we launched the Bolt Delivery service to provide our drivers with the best support, safe work, and an opportunity to generate revenue with their experience and efficiency in business and logistics. In addition to this service, we plan to introduce new delivery services that will also help business customers,” said Tomislav Lukačević, Operations Manager at Bolt, Croatia.

“To use the service, change your payment method to in-app payment, select the Delivery ride-type in the Bolt app, give the driver your package and the recipient’s phone number. Easy!

You can share the delivery information with the recipient using the Share Trip feature inside the app.

The dimensions of your parcel should fall within 65 x 55 x 40cm. If you need to deliver larger packages, please notify the driver in advance,” writes Bolt in its press release. 

Using the existing application, the delivery option offers the opportunity for private and business users to send what they need to their friends, family or business colleagues and associates during this time of limited mobility.
