Careem diversifies with the launch of a delivery service

Careem launches delivery service in Saudi and the UAE: Careem has launched Careem Now, a separate app that aims to become a full delivery service for anything from food to meds, according to Reuters in a piece that also covers the ride sharing app’s expansion and fundraising plans. Careem Now launched as a food delivery service in Dubai and Jeddah and will roll out to Egypt and Pakistan if it proves successful. Careem believes that “the opportunity for deliveries in the region is even bigger than ride hailing,” CEO and co-founder Mudassir Sheikha has said.
