Postmates Launches In Mexico City As Its First International Market
Postmates’ first international launch comes at a time when the company has been looking to ramp up its offering to compete with others in the tech-focused logistics realm.
On-demand courier network Postmates has launched its platform in Mexico City, representing the company’s first market outside the U.S.
From today, more than 1,000 restaurants in Mexico City will be using Postmates to deliver food to customers across a number of areas, including Polanco, Condesa, Juárez, Cuauhtémoc, Roma, and Ciudad Universitaria.
“We believe Mexico City is a perfect market for Postmates to offer its on-demand delivery service,” said Postmates CTO and cofounder Sean Plaice. “It is one of the largest urban consumer markets in the world — with a vibrant economy and food scene.”
Founded out of San Francisco in 2011, Postmates serves as an easy way to match consumer goods with people that are able to deliver them. The company has raised nearly $300 million in equity funding, and its service is now available in dozens of cities across the U.S., from California and Colorado to Illinois and Indiana, where it already makes around 2.5 million deliveries each month.
