Russian tech giant Yandex has launched an ultrafast delivery service under the Yango Deli brand. It will offer delivery of more than 2,500 products in 15 minutes.

The service will provide delivery from local mini-warehouses, with the potential to reach 1.4 million customers, according to Yandex.

The business model is based on the technology giant’s success in rolling out its Yandex Lavka grocery service across Russia, and follows launches in Israel and France as part of an international expansion.

The UK, and London in particular, is an exciting new market for Yango Deli, as the city is especially well suited to the dark store model,” the General Manager of Yango Deli UK Evgeny Chernikov said.
