As the pandemic situation in Taiwan continues to be in dire state, Uber Eats is due to launch an alternative on Thursday for the public to shop for groceries from traditional markets virtually.
According to Uber Eats, the delivery system for traditional markets was first tested in April in three different cities and counties to ensure that it was workable.
Local Chinese-language media reports that the company revealed the system test was carried out in 5 markets in Taipei, 3 in Hsinchu, and 1 in Kaohsiung.
It was then that they realized there was actually a great need for this new service and decided to expand it to include more districts and areas.
Local media reports that Uber is due to officially announce the new service at noon today and will also disclose more details of the cooperation with traditional markets and unveil its service model.
Uber Eats 目前在台灣18縣市提供外送服務，與超過5萬多家的商店和餐廳合作。
Uber Eats can be accessible in 18 cities and counties in Taiwan and includes more than 50 thousand businesses and restaurants.
The new service will definitely be a great alternative and allows the public to order groceries from the comfort of their home.
