Uber partners with Flipkart and BigBasket in India to deliver essentials2020-07-23 | Corporate
Uber is resuming some services in India as it looks to help other firms deliver grocery and other essential items in select parts of the country. Uber has partnered with Flipkart to deliver everyday essentials in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore. The announcement comes days after Uber inked a similar deal with online grocer BigBasket and Kolkata-headquartered chain Spencer’s Retail. The partnerships will allow Uber to help companies reach the last-mile destinations. Uber will not charge any commission on these transactions and drivers, who typically have to let go as much as 25 per cent of their earnings to the ride-hailing firm, will keep 100 per cent of the billed amounts.
