~ With the shift to online shopping continuing, Pineapple Express Delivery reaches key milestone, completing 1-Million deliveries
VANCOUVER, July 07, 2021 – World-Class Extractions Inc. (CSE:PUMP) (FRA:WCF) (OTCQB:WCEXF) (“Company” or “World-Class”), extends its congratulations to Pineapple Express Delivery Inc. (“Pineapple Express Delivery” or “PED”), a company in which World-Class has a controlling interest, on completing its one millionth delivery.
Pineapple Express Delivery is a leading logistics technology company offering compliant and secure delivery of controlled substances and regulated products. Since launching in 2018 with only 12 drivers, PED has increased to 200 drivers today, servicing 12 cities across Canada (including the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area which is counted as one city).
Randy Rolph, CEO & Founder of Pineapple Express Delivery stated, “PED is starting the summer on a high note as it celebrates its 1 millionth delivery, achieved on Monday July 5th at 7:00pm-EDT. I am so proud of our team and their hard work over the years to reach this tremendous level of success. This significant milestone is a direct result of the major demand, traction, and adoption of PED’s logistics technology. PED’s primary goal is to serve our clients so that their patients and customers receive best-in-class service in meeting their delivery needs. We look forward to expanding our customer relationships across Canada so that we remain the trusted delivery and logistics supply chain partner of choice.”
“E-commerce is thriving, and demands for delivery seen surging during the pandemic continue to increase as delivery has become the norm; it’s unlikely that Canadians will ever return to their old shopping habits” stated Rosy Mondin, CEO of World-Class. “According to a June-2021 Paypal survey, 59% of Canadians have increased their online shopping habits compared to prior to the pandemic. As key industries expand their online presence, consumers see the digital economy becoming a prevalent part of daily life1. Additionally, Paypal reports that 61% of respondents believe that cashless transactions will be part of their typical shopping experience, with 28% expecting to shop entirely cashless within five years2. Canadians have come to value the safety, discretion and convenience of PED’s services, and none of this would have been possible without the continued efforts and dedication of the entire Pineapple Express Delivery team. We congratulate them on this key achievement.”
PED’s logistics and delivery services include medical and recreational cannabis delivery in Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and liquor delivery in certain jurisdictions in Saskatchewan. Pineapple Express Delivery’s clients include Shoppers Drug Mart / Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™, Spectrum Therapeutics, the medical division of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC), The Saskatoon Co-operative Association Ltd. (Liquor Division) and CannTrust Inc. to their estoraTM medical cannabis patients.
