foodpanda adds e-scooter riders into its delivery team

After including members of the biking community into its delivery service, foodpanda is now welcoming e-scooter riders into its team.

In a press release, foodpanda said that the inclusion of e-scooter riders will help the company continue to offer “fast and convenient food deliveries to its customers while providing the members of the e-scooter community a source of income.”

foodpanda recently launched the e-scooter service with 25 riders in Makati and BGC. This will be a good opportunity for those who want to pioneer the service that is perfect for safe, fast, and efficient deliveries of 1 to 2 kms.

According to foodpanda, there will be an onboarding process with a distribution of free rider assets from the company which include one thermal bag, two sets of uniforms, a gcash card, a helmet, and led lights for successful applicants.

“With the growing community of e-scooter riders who see it as a convenient way of getting around, we are opening this opportunity for them to have a source of income that will cover short-distance deliveries. We are piloting this in our two areas in the Metro and hopefully we will be able to cover more areas soon. This is another way where foodpanda innovates its services to reach more customers,” foodpanda managing director Daniel Marogy said. “To ensure road safety, which in one of our priorities, all approved scooter bikes will be according to the city government requirements. This is likewise in line with foodpanda initiatives to explore more sustainable efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.”
