OBike launches de­liv­ery ser­vice

Southeast Asia Globe - - Next -

Sin­ga­porean bike-shar­ing startup oBike has launched a ser­vice called oBike Flash to help users de­liver their items to a des­ti­na­tion of their choice. The com­pany, which is call­ing for users to be­come couri­ers, said de­liv­er­ies would reach des­ti­na­tions within two hours. To be­come an oBike ‘Flash­man', peo­ple sim­ply down­load an An­droid app that al­lows them to ac­cept or­ders. Al­though an­a­lysts said that oBike was es­sen­tially launch­ing an­other startup by in­tro­duc­ing a de­liv­ery busi­ness, ques­tions re­main on its prof­itabil­ity. Ob­servers have said that re­ly­ing on the bi­cy­cle and its lim­ited speed to carry out de­liv­er­ies may be a dis­ad­van­tage given that well-es­tab­lished courier com­pa­nies use mo­torised trans­port.
