BBC: Uber powers emergency food deliveries in Ukraine

Uber has built a “private-label” version of its delivery platform to help the United Nations deliver food and water supplies to war-torn areas of Ukraine.

  • The tech firm is working with the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP).
  • Uber’s platform enables the WFP to co-ordinate a fleet of smaller vehicles.
  • The scheme is being trialled in the central city of Dnipro. The hope is that it will be rolled out later across four other cities: Lviv, Vinnytsia, Kyiv and Chernivtsi.
