Singapore – Earlier in March, Singapore-headquartered mobility tech SWAT Mobility (SWAT) launched delivery services with online grocer Uglyfood, making it SWAT’s official entry into the logistics space.
SWAT mainly provides B2B transport solutions for passenger booking and rides management and prior to Uglyfood, SWAT has run seasonal delivery services with a hotel, meat grocer, and for covid test samples.
Uglyfood is an online grocer with a mission to eliminate food waste. Their produce is marred in some way but is perfectly good to eat. By offering these ‘ugly’ foods for sale, they aim to create a sustainable food ecosystem. Aside from produce, they offer branded products that are also made from its produce and also offer sustainably-sourced goods.
“Often, unappreciated food goes to waste due to the lack of proper knowledge. We are pleased to provide this extra service to our customers who are part of this sustainable effort alongside us,” said Mark Lee, head of operations at UglyFood.
SWAT’s delivery system will pool orders going to the same area together. Through the outsourcing, SWAT is able to help Uglyfood scale with minimal disruption to its operations.
