Tesco has teamed up with Uber Eats to expand their rapid grocery delivery service via the supermarket’s Whoosh service.
Supermarkets are cashing in on the demand for their customers wanting a rapid delivery which started during the pandemic as many have signed up with Deliveroo and Uber Eats.
Tesco developed their own platform called Whoosh which cuts out the high charges that other delivery firms charge.
The Whoosh service delivers food and drink within 60 minutes which also covers 200 Express stores.
Alex Troughton, head of new verticals and grocery at Uber Eats UK, said, “It’s clear that the needs of businesses and consumers have been rapidly evolving in recent years and that trend is accelerating.
“This exciting new partnership will harness the best of Uber’s technology to power superfast Tesco deliveries across the UK.
“The partnership is proof positive of the momentum we’re seeing in our groceries and retailer delivery offer, and we’re committed to providing world-class solutions to our partners.”
