Spanish Cabify plans to deliver online groceries to Latin America in 2022 | The powerful 790 KFGO

MADRID (Reuters) – Spanish ridesharing app Cabify will start offering grocery deliveries in its Latin American markets next year after launching the service in Spain a month ago, Lucia Chavarri said on Monday, vice president of new business.

“We will be launching our Cabify Super service next year in Latin America,” Chavarri told reporters at an event celebrating the multi-mobility company’s 10th anniversary, saying the move made sense against a backdrop of boom rapid e-commerce fueled by a pandemic.

The service, which allows users to place orders from nearby partner supermarkets, is expected to land in the leading Latin American market in the first half of 2022, a source within the company told Reuters.

The company operates in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. He did not specify which market he would enter first.

A new generation of startups have sought to consolidate market share in the sector, including Turkey-based Getir and Berlin-based Gorillas, both of which have expanded beyond borders.

Ridesharing applications are entering this industry to compete with meal delivery application services such as Glovo. His European rival Gett is also set to arrive in Spain in 2022.
