Swiggy on Wednesday announced the launch of Swiggy Go, the company's pick-up and drop service. Swiggy Go will first launch in Bengaluru. The company said that it has plans to expand the Swiggy Go service to more than 300 cities by next year. For now, Swiggy Go is available only in Bengaluru. Interestingly, Swiggy Go will not be limited to food delivery. Swiggy doesn't want to limit itself to food delivery anymore. Swiggy Go would compete directly with Bengaluru-based delivery startup Dunzo. Swiggy Go can be used to pick up and drop off laundry, get forgotten keys, send lunch boxes from home to office or even deliver documents or parcels to clients, Swiggy said in its statement. Swiggy also announced the expansion of its Swiggy Stores to Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
