“Fast Dispatcher” gorilla contemplates stopping Belgian activities

The German “express delivery” company for food and other groceries will lay off 50 percent of its office staff. A company spokesman said on Tuesday that about 300 people were involved. In a press release, Gorillas also said that it is looking at all strategic options for its activities in Belgium.

Gorillas grow, but they struggle to match profits. In the press release, the young company refers to a “challenging and complex environment” that has hit the startup and technology sector in recent weeks.

Many players have to fiddle with strategy now that the era of cheap wages and rapid growth has passed. By October, the company had raised about $1 billion. Sofina Holdings Bel20 also takes care of the online grocer.

The company employs approximately 15,000 people worldwide, including delivery drivers and warehouse workers. Gorillas delivers groceries and other merchandise on a fast basis after ordering via an app. Express delivery states in the press release a focus on Germany, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States, which together account for 90 percent of sales volume.

It is not yet clear what the changes mean for Belgium. “In Italy, Spain, Denmark and Belgium, all of which are very attractive markets, we are looking at all possible strategic options for the Gorillas brand.” The company does delivery in our country in some parts of Antwerp and Brussels, according to the site.
