Uber launches package delivery service ‘Uber Connect’ in Goa

Panaji, Oct 15 (UNI) Uber on Thursday launched its new package delivery service called ‘Uber Connect’ in Goa, which will allow Goa’s residents to send and receive parcels from each other and also order items from nearby shops, without having to step outside the comfort and safety of their homes. The service will be operational in Panjim, Vasco da Gama and Margaon.
According to a statement from the company, Uber Connect is a prime example of how Uber is adapting its platform to meet the changing needs of citizens, who still need to practise social distancing as cities start to open up after the lengthy lockdown. The new service will also help create new earning opportunities for those who sign up as drivers and facilitate the economic revival of local communities.
All packages should be transportable on a two-wheeler vehicle, be under five kilograms in weight, securely sealed and not include prohibited items such as alcohol, recreational drugs, or dangerous and illegal items. The on-demand service will allow customers to continue monitoring the trip’s progress prior to pickup, en route, and at the dropoff. Customers can also share the delivery status with the recipient of the package. In case customers want to order items from nearby shops, they can simply put the shop address as the pickup location, place the order over the phone, and have the items delivered at their doorstep.
