Careem NOW

Careem NOW launches food delivery, starting with Jeddah and Dubai.
We launched it , an online delivery platform for goods and services, as we expand beyond

ride hailing and into mass deliveries, mass transportation and payments.

In addition, The delivery platform, with end-to-end logistical capabilities, marks Careem’s entry into the

food-delivery market and operates via a separate app – available for Android and iOS and on the app stores.

Careem is the internet platform for the greater Middle East region. A pioneer of the region's ride-hailing economy,

Careem is expanding services across its platform to include mass transportation, delivery and payments

to become the region's everyday SuperApp.

Careem's mission is to simplify and improve the lives of people and build a lasting organisation that inspires.

We established Careem in July 2012, and Uber acquired it in 2020. Careem operates in over

100 cities across 14 countries and has created more than one million employment opportunities in the region.


Starting by launching in Dubai and Jeddah, and Egypt and Pakistan will soon follow, but we aim

to make Careem NOW the biggest online delivery platform for goods and services in the region,

and we will invest over $150 million in Careem NOW, reflecting the level of commitment in

creating a first-class delivery service.

Moreover, It has over 33 million customers already on the platform, and an existing delivery system via

Careem technology, so the service will be able to scale quickly to match potential demand.

Only 15 percent of the food delivery market in our region overall currently operating via app and

still relying on traditional call-and-order method.

Moreover, The food delivery market in it’s target countries is predicted to grow to around $25 billion by 2022

as the global trend for how we order food is reflected in our region. Additionally, mobile internet

use in the region will be around 48 percent by 2020, up from 38 percent in 2016 – as using a

mobile phone to order food will only become more prevalent.
