With Shanghai’s Locked-Down Residents in Need of Fresh Food, Online Grocers Struggle to Deliver
Residents in many neighborhoods of Shanghai are having trouble getting their hands on fresh produce, as stricter Covid-19 lockdowns prevent delivery drivers and other key logistics staff from working.
As more and more neighborhoods go under lockdown across the city of 25 million, multiple residents stuck at home told Caixin that they have found it difficult to purchase fresh meat and vegetables on online platforms like Meituan. Some have tried rising with the sun to get a jump on other online customers, only to find most of the produce is already sold out.
