In the first international deal of its kind, BP’s forecourt stores around the world will be able to have their convenience store goods delivered to local customers through Uber Eats.
The global partnership between BP and Uber Eats is an extension of its existing partnerships in Australia, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa and the west coast of the U.S. The UK and whole of the US is now added, with plans to launch in European markets at the beginning of 2023.
Customers will be able to select goods for delivery through the Bump app at the end of 2023, but prior to that will be able to use the Uber Direct app in the interim. The deal will connect BP with the 4.4 million drivers and riders working with the Uber Eats platform worldwide.
Emma Delaney, executive vice president of customers and products at BP said, “We’ve seen how the pandemic has accelerated customer demand for delivered convenience and this partnership will allow us to scale up quickly on the Uber platform. And for the first time, we will be able to offer delivery options to existing customers on our own BPme app by the end of 2023,” Delaney said.
When in full operation, BP’s 20,500 sites around the world will be able to have their convenience store goods delivered to an estimated 550 million customers who live within 20 minutes of one of its forecourts.
