MADRID (Reuters) – Spanish ride-hailing app Cabify will start offering grocery delivery in Latin American markets next year after launching the service in Spain a month ago, said Lucia Chavarri, new business vice president, said Monday.
Chavarri told reporters at an event to celebrate the multi-mobile company’s 10th anniversary, saying the move makes sense amid the pandemic’s outbreak in the rapidly expanding e-commerce sector.
The service, which allows users to order from nearby partner supermarkets, is likely to hit the Latin American market first 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. It doesn’t say which markets it will launch in first.
A host of new startups have sought to consolidate market share in the sector, including Turkey-based Getir and Berlin-based Gorillas, both of which have expanded across borders.
Ride-hailing apps are moving into that business to compete with meal delivery app services like Glovo. European rival Gett will also arrive in Spain in 2022.
