November 8, 2021

Serve Robotics, which develops autonomous sidewalk delivery robots, has announced a partnership with Uber Technologies that expands its on-demand robotic delivery service to Uber Eats customers starting in Los Angeles early next year.

Founded in 2017 as the robotics division of Postmates, Serve Robotics is now an independent company with a mission to make delivery more affordable, sustainable and accessible for everyone. The company said its robots have successfully completed tens of thousands of contactless deliveries in major U.S. cities. Serve is backed by Uber and other leading investors.

“Serve Robotics is looking forward to delivering great convenience for Uber Eats merchants and customers,” said Ali Kashani, co-founder and CEO of Serve Robotics. “Uber is our first commercial partner and will be a strong source of demand for us as we use contactless delivery to power community commerce at scale.”

Serve’s self-driving, zero-emissions rovers serve people in public spaces, starting with food delivery. The company said it has several established commercial partnerships, and continues to expand its partner platform.

“We are excited to partner with Serve Robotics to test a new kind of delivery in Los Angeles that’s safe, reliable and environmentally friendly,” said Sarfraz Maredia, vice president and head of Uber Eats in the U.S. and Canada. “We’re always looking for ways to better serve merchants and consumers, which is why we’re working with the team at Serve to explore the potential of this technology.”
