A delivery truck, which carries pizza orders to a customer’s door, could soon be a thing of the past, according to an article in The Wall St Journal.
The pizza delivery service will be able to deliver pizza to customers in person, instead of through a fleet of delivery trucks that typically deliver packages to stores and restaurants.
The change will allow delivery companies to offer pizza to consumers in the same way they deliver packages.
The WSJ article says the change will also allow delivery trucks to deliver orders to customers’ homes, instead or in a different location.
Customers will also be able order pizza directly from the delivery driver.
The company, Redline Express, plans to begin delivering pizza to select restaurants in the U.S. and Canada in late 2018.
Redline also said in a statement that delivery service deliveries would continue to be offered through the end of 2019.
The delivery truck has long been an annoyance to consumers, who have complained about the time it takes to deliver a pizza.
The Washington Post reported in 2017 that the truck had been a problem in some communities, especially in California.
The driver in one such case had a history of not wearing seat belts.
In another instance, a pizza delivery driver was caught stealing a customer pizza after allegedly ordering an order from a man who then handed it to a man driving by, according the Post.
The pizzas are then sent to a person’s door and then are placed on a conveyor belt that sends them back to the truck.
The truck driver is also expected to be fired for stealing pizzas, according a New York Times report in 2018.
