Tesco has partnered with Uber on the rollout of its Whoosh rapid grocery delivery proposition

Tesco has started working with Uber to help expand its rapid grocery delivery service.

Uber said its network of Uber Eats couriers will now be responsible for making deliveries of Tesco products ordered via the supermarket’s Whoosh service.

Tesco launched its Whoosh service, which aims to deliver food and drinks in under 60 minutes, in May 2021 and now covers 200 Express Stores across the UK.

Many supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Asda and Waitrose have food delivery platforms on Uber Eats and Deliveroo.

Fees for deliveries are higher than those made via its traditional online grocery service.

The deal with Uber launches from 20 stores across the UK, including Edinburgh, Bradford, Portsmouth, Norwich, St Albans and Letchworth, and bosses said the partnership will help reach its target of offering the service from 600 stores by the end of the year.

Alex Troughton, head of new verticals and grocery at Uber Eats UK, said: “It’s clear that the needs of businesses and consumers have been rapidly evolving in recent years and that trend is accelerating.

“This exciting new partnership will harness the best of Uber’s technology to power superfast Tesco deliveries across the UK.

“The partnership is proof positive of the momentum we’re seeing in our groceries and retailer delivery offer, and we’re committed to providing world-class solutions to our partners.”
