Thus, the biggest players e-grocery market – Tesco, Carrefour or Frisco.pl can sleep peacefully – Lidl, at least for the time being, does not compete with them.

In spite of appearing information on Lidl’s cooperation with Inpost and planned use parcel machines located at chain stores as collection points, for the time being products will be delivered by courier companies only, within three days of the moment the order is placed. The products will therefore be shipped from stock and Lidl does not yet intend to take advantage of the fact that it owns a network in excess of 670 stores throughout the country. Example of a German e-shop clearly visible shows how much of a problem in the online food market is represented by logistics.

For comparison: still a channel shops at service stations will be almost three times bigger. Entry innovations such as refrigerators (Coolomat, Inpost), delivery through a neighbour (There are networks of Carrefour) or dark store (Lisek.App, bicycle delivery even within a period of time. 10 minutes from one of the mini-magazines) can encourage more consumers to try to buy food on the Internet, but only to open up one’s own e-shops by the largest retail chains will make food purchases at The internet will become truly popular.
