My favorite part of this business model is the network potential. At scale this becomes a powerful distribution channel for new CPG products, like the end caps at the grocery checkout line.

Do you know what taxi drivers hate? People eating in their car.

@doivoid Definitely! Drivers that have a Cargo box are encouraged to give all items (including food items) only after the ride has come to a stop both for safety and cleanliness.

Cheaper rides. Happier riders. And cool new CPG brands. What's not to love? They're now live in 9 markets, and partnered up with Uber to promote the offering to more drivers. πŸš€

I had the opportunity to use a Cargo in a Lyft ride recently, and had a conversation with the driver about it. From my perspective, there were headphones and gum at a good price on my way to the airport. From the driver's perspective, it's a thing he can stick in his car and make some extra money. Win-win?

Pros:

Easy to use, easy for the driver, nice to have option

Cons:

It could look a little nicer?

Pretty slick concept - although I am curious the type of items they "stock" - soda, red bull, condoms, etc.
