The new Dell Express delivery company is looking to expand into other areas and hopes to become a new major player in the grocery delivery business, which has been dominated by big-box retailers like Walmart and Kroger.
Dell, which recently hired its first chief operating officer, said it would begin offering its Express delivery services by the end of the year.
The company also plans to start offering its delivery trucks and delivery drones, the company said.
The new Express deliveries would be similar to the ones the company offers through its online business, where customers can order from the company’s web store or by calling 800-DELTA.
The Express delivery business has been struggling since the launch of Amazon’s Prime Now delivery service in 2015, as it lost ground to a handful of other delivery services.
The online business is estimated to have revenue of $10 billion, while Amazon Prime Now has about $4 billion in revenue.
“Dell has been a leader in this space for a long time, and we see that it’s ready to be the leader in the delivery space,” said Tim Denniston, a senior vice president at Dell, in a statement.
The new service will launch in the first quarter of 2019, according to the company. “
This is why we have invested in new technologies to enable Dell Express to become the leading delivery company in the United States and across the globe.”
The new service will launch in the first quarter of 2019, according to the company.
“Our delivery team is rapidly growing,” the statement said.
“As we continue to deliver delivery products, we will be expanding to deliver goods and services in the marketplace, including online.”
