The closing includes the two delivery hubs that Google Express uses in California. These hubs are located in San Francisco and Mountain View. This isn’t the end of the service, but rather part of the company’s effort to reorganize its delivery business, reports Recode.
Google Express will reportedly live on with the help of delivery startups, which the company may be in talks with. This would likely allow it to keep same-day delivery while cutting down on cost, Recode notes.
The closing of Google Express’ delivery hubs comes after the tech company recently announced that it will be restructuring to form a new parent company called Alphabet. This change will allow all the individual parts of Google to keep their business focus while giving them room to grow on their own.
