Serve Robotics and Uber Expand Partnership to Bring Robotic Delivery to Uber Eats

November 12, 2021

Partnership will bring robotic delivery to Uber Eats customers, increasing food delivery convenience and sustainability in Los Angeles.

Serve Robotics, the leading autonomous sidewalk delivery company, today announced a partnership with Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER), the world’s largest food delivery and ridesharing platform. The on-demand robotic delivery service will be available to Uber Eats customers starting in Los Angeles early next year.

Serve Robotics is shaping the future of sustainable, self-driving delivery. Founded in 2017 as the robotics division of Postmates, Serve is now an independent company on a mission to make delivery more affordable, sustainable and accessible for everyone. Guided by its proprietary autonomous technology, the company’s self-driving robots have successfully completed tens of thousands of contactless deliveries in major U.S. cities. Serve is backed by Uber, alongside other leading investors.

“Serve Robotics is looking forward to delivering great convenience for Uber Eats merchants and customers. Uber is our first commercial partner and will be a strong source of demand for us as we use contactless delivery to power community commerce at scale,” said Dr. Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics.

“We are excited to partner with Serve Robotics to test a new kind of delivery in Los Angeles, that’s safe, reliable and environmentally friendly,” said Sarfraz Maredia, VP and Head of Uber Eats in the US & Canada. “We’re always looking for ways to better serve merchants and consumers, which is why we're working with the team at Serve to explore the potential of this technology.”
