Shell Lubricants, the global market leader in finished lubricants, has partnered with Uber, the world's largest on-demand ridesharing company to provide premium services to driver partners registered with the Uber App.

The lubricants major along with Pitstop (a doorstep car service company,) is setting up kiosks at Uber's Partner Service Centres across the nation to help driver partners maintain superior car quality standards for an enjoyable rider experience. Driver Partners can visit these centers to get in-person help on their documentation, ask any questions about their account and payments and can now reap the benefits of additional facilities such as, gadget repair services and vehicle maintenance, etc. Owing to increasing demand for rides via aggregators, a large proportion of these cars are clocking nearly 250 km-a-day, implying a need for an oil change every other month.

With increasing importance on customer feedback, driver partners are now conscious and are able to keep their cars in prime condition to ensure riders have a pleasant riding experience. Shell Lubricants, via Pitstop is bringing its products and services to the driver partners' doorstep, thus helping them save time and effort. The programme is being launched in 7 cities across India, with activations in Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai already underway.

Since the first launch in Bangalore, the service has already seen around 300 visits by driver partners and continues to see enthusiastic driver participation and appreciation as it spreads across India. This initiative is an example of Shell's customer-centric approach and demonstrates a commitment to ensure added value for all customers through strategic partnerships.

Through our collaboration with Uber, we look forward to creating a conducive environment for our valued stakeholders -Driver Partners registered with the Uber App drivers - to enhance their productivity and driving experience."

We are always looking for ways to support the driver partners with the required resources that will help them find a lot more ease in providing a great ride experience.
