Delivery platforms are highly competitive in Thailand where you can see motorcycles delivering stuff everywhere in the streets. Surprisingly, a Thai carrier was recently pictured paddling across a river to deliver food, making him an overnight sensation.
位在泰國曼谷東邊，車程約1小時的北柳府有一條邦帕空河(Bang Pakong River )。近日，一名泰國網友貼出數張Foodpanda外送員在邦帕空河「水上送貨」照片，被臉書網友瘋傳，這幅景象讓許多網友嘖嘖稱奇。
The Bang Pakong River is located in Chachoengsao city, Thailand, about an hour’s drive east of Bangkok. A Thai social media user has recently posted several photos of a Foodpanda carrier “delivering on the water” on the Bangpakong River. The photos were spread wildly by Facebook users.
分享照片的網友 Pradit Saengdee在貼文中寫道：「Foodpanda現在提供水上外送服務了。」
Pradit Saengdee, the social media user who shared the photo, wrote in a post: “Foodpanda now has marine delivery services.”
「北柳府Foodpanda外送員的專屬道具。騎機車已經過時了，大家划船吧！」 Pradit 說道，「他為外送服務開創先鋒。」
“Props to the Foodpanda of Chachoengsao. Riding a motorbike is outdated. Let’s paddle a boat,” the post reads, adding “This is the new frontier for food delivery.”
In response to the post, many have left comments saying, “He must be very good at rowing the boat” while one wrote: “It’s so cool.”
Another said: “He should wear a life jacket.”
In 2012, Foodpanda and German-based Delivery Hero both entered the Bangkok area to provide delivery services. With the continued expansion of the service, Chachoengsao also became an emerging market for delivery services last year.
