Grab introduces new services in Thailand
Ride-hailing major Grab has unveiled three new logistics services in Thailand as part of efforts to become a one-stop super app for users in Southeast Asia.
GrabExpress is a same-day package and document delivery service which was launched in the Philippines last month. GrabMart is an “e-concierge” which allows users to get items delivered to their doorstep from nearby convenience stores, and will go live in beta next month.
GrabFresh, meanwhile, is the online groceries-delivery service that Grab recently launched in partnership with Indonesia’s HappyFresh.
DEALSTREETASIA first reported that Grab has picked up a minority stake in grocery delivery startup HappyFresh as part of their recently announced partnership.
Revolution Precrafted signs deal with Neinor Homes in Spain
The deal would enable Neinor Homes to industrialize house-building in Spain, Revolution Precrafted said in a statement. The venture will begin with two projects in Navarra and Castellón, allowing Neinor Homes to test the viability of Revolution’s construction technology in Spain.
“Neinor Homes, can now build industrialized homes, designed by Revolution Precrafted and its stable of 80 global architects, designers and artists called revolutionaries,” the property-technology firm said.
For his part, Neinor Homes CEO Juan Velayos expressed confidence that more homes and villas will be built in the coming years, due to the growing demand for real estate in Spain. The company plans to build 3,500 and 4,000 homes annually by the year 2020.
