Uber starts 15-minute delivery in Paris

Uber has launched a 15-minute delivery service in Paris, named Carrefour Sprint, in collaboration with Carrefour and French startup Cajoo. This service, available on the Uber Eats app, utilizes dark stores – dedicated small warehouses for quick order preparation. This move aims to cater to the fast-paced lifestyle of Parisians, though its necessity is subject to personal preference.

Dark stores sounds just like Amazon fulfillment centers to me. It’s overall a good move if it addresses the needs of the busy people in Paris. Personally, I don’t see a need for 15-minute delivery.
