In 2015, Cornershop set out to become the largest on-demand grocery delivery service in Mexico. It has since become the largest business of its kind in Latin America. To achieve this growth, Cornershop needed a mapping platform that would let customers order from their mobile phones or via the web, and provide the infrastructure for dispatching shoppers to pick up and deliver groceries as efficiently as possible. Cornershop chose Google Maps because it provides the most comprehensive set of APIs and the most accurate mapping data.

Google Maps Platform Results

  • 428M Mexican pesos ($21.8 million) were spent using Cornershop in 2016
  • 1,000+ Shoppers deliver grocery orders to customers
  • Cornershop estimated it will delivered more than one million grocery orders in 2017
  • Due to its dramatic growth, Cornershop was named one of Forbes' 30 most promising Mexican companies
  • Google Maps' familiar interface makes it easy for customers to order groceries and for shoppers to deliver them within 90 minutes

Over 85% of the orders are made via mobile devices

"With Google Maps, we've built an on-demand grocery delivery service from scratch, and can deliver orders within 90 minutes. On-demand grocery delivery is new to Latin America, and Google Maps' reliability, useful APIs and familiar interface have helped us build an easy-to-use service that people are comfortable with."

Daniel Undurraga, Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Cornershop

Google Maps Platform power every step of Cornershop's ordering and delivery process. Cornershop customers using mobile devices place their orders via apps built with the Maps SDK for Android and the Maps SDK for iOS, while web customers use a site built with the Maps JavaScript API. The APIs display maps, let customers easily select their locations on them, and show the progress of their orders. On the backend, Geocoding API finds customer addresses, and Distance Matrix API calculates estimated delivery times. Drivers use an app built with the Waze API to determine the most efficient delivery routes, which allows Cornershop to deliver orders within 90 minutes.
