After a Successful First Year in Los Angeles, Serve Has a Plan to Deploy Up to 2,000 AI-Powered Sidewalk Delivery Robots in New Markets on the Uber Platform
Today, Serve Robotics Inc., the leading autonomous sidewalk delivery company, unveiled the scope of their partnership with Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER), the world's largest food delivery and ridesharing platform. The company's commercial agreement allows for Serve to deploy its robots on Uber Eats in multiple markets across the United States, with up to two thousand Serve Robots to be fielded. Utilizing delivery robots has the potential to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, while also improving the efficiency of last mile delivery and offering customers and merchants a new and innovative delivery experience.
Expanding the partnership with Uber is a significant opportunity for Serve. Serve's robotic deliveries have grown over 30% month over month since deliveries began in 2022, with over 200 restaurants in Los Angeles now participating. This growing awareness and interest in robotic delivery in one of the largest North American markets is evident in the thousands of positive ratings received for completed deliveries.
"We are thrilled to be growing our partnership with Uber," said Dr. Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics. "This partnership is a major step towards mass commercialization of robotics for autonomous delivery, and it is a testament to the success of our partnership. We are excited to continue our work with Uber to bring this innovative technology to more cities across the country."
