Uber Connect finds adoption among small family run businesses

| @indiablooms | 09 Nov 2020, 03:16 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: Uber has announced that since launching Uber Connect, its on- demand delivery service, in May, hundreds of small, family-run businesses across the country have used it to fulfill client orders in real-time, including items ranging from fresh flowers to fresh bakery goods.

On-demand pickups, safe, contactless payments and affordable prices make Uber Connect a popular choice for small and medium sized businesses that are trying to navigate the current challenging financial times, and can help economic revival of local communities and trade.

The company launched Uber Connect to help keep vital supply chains moving during the lockdown, enabling residents to send and receive parcels from each other and also order items from shops, without having to step outside the comfort and safety of their homes.

Tarun Gupta, Head of Strategic Initiatives, Uber India and South Asia, said, “Uber Connect is a prime example of how we are adapting our platform to serve the evolving needs of our communities and are thrilled to see small and medium enterprises using the service to meet their business objectives and keep supply chains running.

"When we first launched our package delivery service we wanted to help citizens stay connected to their loved ones or order essential items from shops, without having to step out of the safety of their homes. As the country opens up, we’re confident that Uber Connect can facilitate the economic revival of local businesses, along with creating new earning opportunities for drivers.”
