Repsol and Deliveroo have raised the service to 19 cities to facilitate the supply of basic products through 28 stores at service stations during the state of alarm. The new stores are in Madrid, Fuenlabrada, Las Rozas, Leganés, Móstoles, Coslada, Alcobendas, Badalona, Sabadell, Zaragoza, A Coruña, San Sebastián, Pamplona, Sestao, Valladolid, Salamanca, Málaga, Seville, Ginés (Seville) and San Juan de Aznalfarache (Seville), and thus join the six already existing for a few days in central areas of Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.
This alliance makes possible the home delivery in just 30 minutes of an expanded assortment and that currently amounts to more than 270 products, including rice, dairy and hygiene, among others, in addition to ready-made dishes. The goal is to provide citizens with access to numerous items without the need to leave home during this period of alarm.
Therefore, the number of cities, stores in stations that offer this service and products has increased, and the opening hours are also extended, in many cases from nine in the morning until midnight.
Deliveries are made contactless throughout the process to ensure the safety of store employees, riders, and customers.
Free breakfasts to carriers and emergencies
In addition to this initiative, Repsol is offering 1,500 of its service stations in Spain free coffee and buns for transporters, emergency and health services, and the armed and security forces. The initiative, which will last until April 26 inclusive, the last day of the state of alarm, is expandable to other stations in its extensive network, which as an essential service, is practically 100% open, the company reports.
It also highlights that it has the largest network with available toilets available to carriers and emergency services. In fact, there are more than 2,000 service stations with open toilets, of which 450 have toilets outside the store and the rest have flexibility to allow access to transporters and emergency services, observing the relevant subsequent sanitation measures.
On March 13, Repsol modified the protocol for customer service at the company’s service stations in Spain to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, both among customers and among workers and suppliers. The company’s service stations are in self-service mode. In the case of store products, Repsol guarantees their supply through the window of service stations.
Furthermore, the company has adapted the facilities of its Repsol Technology Lab research center, located in Móstoles, to produce 10,000 liters of hydroalcoholic gel per week and donate it to hospitals in the Community of Madrid. 1,500 kg of polypropylene has also been donated to the Foundation for Research and Development in Transport and Energy (Cidaut) in Valladolid for the manufacture of visors for protective face shields for healthcare personnel, among other support initiatives in the fight against Covid-19. .
