By Tannu Sharma 7th July 2020

Let’s admit it: Uber has been a smart player in the industry. Their decisive actions are always the talk of the town. The on-demand food industry is the perfect market fit for the times we live in. In a new series of events, Uber has just acquired Postmates. This all-stock deal ignites competition in the on-demand food delivery wars!

Remember the previous capped deal of Just Eat Takeaway with Grubhub? We all saw it coming as Uber earlier failed to collaborate with Grubhub. Read on to know more about it.

The game-changing deal

The on-demand food industry now has tougher competition owing to this giant collaboration. As the latest report suggests, the $2.65 billion all-stock deal will allow Uber Eats to get their tech and delivery operations merged with the existing Postmates app. This can be a tough face-off for other players in the market.

What does this collaboration mean for other players in the game?
