The best notification for any foodie is ‘Your order is arriving’, and the worst is ‘All delivery partners are busy’. The latter one has become quite frequent in the past few days and hence food deliveries are taking much longer than usual. Have you ever thought about why all delivery partners are so busy?
Let us tell you that the delayed deliveries are because of an acute shortage of delivery executives in major metro cities. Due to this reason, service is delayed and the number of food orders is significantly low.
