HERE Technologies and Uber collaborate to enhance global mapping capabilities.


HERE Technologies, a location data and technology platform, has announced a long-term collaboration with Uber Technologies, Inc. The partnership aims to bolster Uber’s mapping capabilities across the world, building on their existing relationship.

The enhanced collaboration between HERE and Uber is set to introduce more advanced location-aware tools and functions to Uber's extensive platform.


A key focus of this partnership will be on improving the accuracy and safety of drop-off and pick-up points. Locations such as airports, stadiums, arenas, and other high-traffic areas globally will benefit from more precise geolocation capabilities. This improvement aims to streamline the user experience for both riders and drivers, reducing wait times and improving overall efficiency.


The agreement cements HERE Technologies' position as one of Uber’s preferred location providers. By leveraging HERE's location data and technology, Uber aims to enhance its service offerings, ensuring that its rideshare and food delivery operations are more reliable and user-friendly.


Ajay Dalvi, Senior Director of Business Development at Uber, said: “The mapping capability is key to creating a fast and intuitive experience for on-demand mobility and delivery solutions.

“Ultimately, it’s all about ensuring end-users, from drivers to couriers to consumers, have the best possible experience when they’re using the Uber apps. In a fast moving world, Uber’s partnership with HERE helps enable Uber to remain a leader in this space with heightened fresh and accurate data, and we’re excited to continue building with them.”


Stuart Ryan, SVP and General Manager of the Americas at HERE Technologies, said: “We are proud to provide Uber with HERE’s robust point address and Points of Interest datasets.


“The HERE platform uniquely offers Uber the ability to customize the app offering, improving the customer experience with better precision and fresh maps data. This partnership will continue to build and improve on the Uber platform, making it safer and more efficient for rides and deliveries around the world.”
