"I am pleased to announce today the start of the Uber-GetSwift partnership. It has taken us a lot of work to arrive at this point, and still lots more remain ahead of us. With that said, we believe that this is going to be an important initiative and offer an incredible blend of products and services that are not only expected to meet current customer demands, but also those that are yet to emerge in this evolving global ecosystem. We expect to have a soft launch before the end of 2021 and then starting in 2022, we expect to be focused on jointly deploying and operating in the regions noted, as well as potentially expanding this model as we evaluate applicability in other regions. With GetSwift’s unique model and product suite, Uber is the perfect partner for us. We look forward to making a positive and long-lasting impact with the customers and communities we serve," said GetSwift’s CEO Bane Hunter
