Tesco has unveiled its new partnership with Uber to boost its rapid delivery service Whoosh.
The partnership will initially go live in 20 stores across the country in Edinburgh, Bradford, Portsmouth, Norwich, St Albans and Letchworth.
“It’s clear that the needs of businesses and consumers have been rapidly evolving in recent years and that trend is accelerating,” Uber Eats UK head of verticals and grocery, Alex Troughton said.
“This exciting new partnership will harness the best of Uber’s technology to power super-fast 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.”
Tesco’s Whoosh service was launched in May 2021 and has already been expanded to 200 Express Stores across the UK, with the new partnership with Uber reflecting Tesco’s plans to roll out Whoosh to a total of 600 stores by the end of this year.
