BELGRADE (Serbia), December 21 (SeeNews) - Spanish on-demand delivery platform Glovo opened its first micro fulfillment centre in Belgrade, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Spanish startup plans to open by the end of the year one more such centre, offering a wide array of products through fast delivery services on a daily basis, it said in a statement.

Customers will be able to chose from 1,500 items and place and order via an application between 8:00 am, and 12:00 am, local time, the statement added.

"We believe that this service will positively affect the experience of our users. At the same time, we are very pleased that the expansion of Glovo's offer will enable access to people in our country to various products of different categories," the director of Glovo's Serbia branch, Branimir Durovic, commented.

Glovo, which operates in 23 other countries, and employs some 2,400 people, stepped in Serbia in June 2019.

Earlier this year, Glovo agreed to acquire Germany-based company Delivery Hero's operations on six markets in Southeast Europe for 170 million euro ($191.5 million). Glovo will acquire the foodpanda brand in Romania and Bulgaria, the Donesi brand in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Pauza in Croatia.
