The opinions expressed by collaborators are personal.
s are clear that together they can go further and unite to face the coronavirus pandemic. A clear example is the alliance between Urbvan , the transport service through shared vans, and Jüsto , the home delivery platform for supermarkets.
Since March 26, Urbvan announced that it was making its fleet of units available to support the distribution of supermarket orders between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm for the 16 mayors of Mexico City. This with the aim that people stay at home.
“In this emergency scenario, it is important that we join efforts with the Government and private initiative. We want to support fewer people having to go out on the streets to do their 'super' and thus join the global initiative #YoMeQuedoEnCasa by enabling our units for the distribution of food, “said Urbvan Marketing Director, Braulio Valenzuela .
Urvan currently has 55,000 users. Currently, it provides transportation service to the Distribution Centers of various companies, such as Amazon, which need support to mobilize their personnel around the Metropolitan Zone of the Valley of Mexico.
For his part, Jüsto reiterated through a statement that the health and safety of clients and all those who make up the team is priority number 1. For this reason, he pointed out that they updated their health and hygiene protocols.
Reinforced hygiene. The entire team of pickers, distributors and vigilantes adopted measures that include: training for the detection of possible infectious pictures, mandatory hand washing at each stage of the delivery process, exhaustive disinfection of the different areas and materials such as: tables, cold rooms , boxes and cars; among other.
Urbvan user demand fell to 12% given the emergency that requires them to stay home, says the director of Marketing. But in order to maintain communication with its users who are not using the service, this startup launched Terminal U.
It is an online community where Urbvan users can connect and share knowledge and learn new things. “We wanted to continue providing value to our users and Urbvan has always tried to share in community, so we made an online community,” says Braulio.
Last Wednesday they launched their first webinar interviewing the founder of Yema.mx.
“The next few days we will have the same dynamic of webinars with founders of Luuna, Crehana, Homely and more friendly startups that can add value to our users and members of Terminal U through conversations,” says the director of Marketing at Urbvan.
