Uber ties up with Medlife for delivering medicines in 5 cities

Amid the ongoing national lockdown, Uber has tied up with online health platform Medlife to offer residents across Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, and Pune access to prescription and over-the-counter medicines.

Earlier, the ride-hailing platform had collaborated with Flipkart, BigBasket and Spencer's Retail to make deliveries on behalf of these players.

Shiva Shailendran, General Manager (North India), Uber India, said, “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Medlife, our first with an online pharmacy platform, to support last-mile delivery of prescription and other medicines. During these challenging times, we are committed to the well-being of our communities and to ensure they stay healthy and safe. Through this service, we continue to provide earning opportunities for drivers.”

All drivers associated with this service are being provided masks, gloves, sanitisers, and safety training, in line with government guidelines and to maintain safety and hygiene levels for containing the spread of COVID-19.

Manish Garg, Head of Supply Chain Management, Medlife, stated, “Our aim is to ensure timely and hassle-free delivery of all essential medical supplies to our customers. We will work with them (Uber) across multiple cities and hope to bridge the gap between demand and supply at the earliest.”
