Groceries at your doorstep in less than 20 minutes. That’s the promise of a relatively new segment of the platform economy. From small dark stores and supermarkets in urban centres, riders race through the city with your eggs, lettuce, or wash product.

FEPS and UNI Europa have teamed up to study this new sector. In this Labor.a session, early insights of an international research were shared and discussed.
