HERE Technologies, the location data and technology platform, and Uber Technologies, announced a long-term collaboration to enhance Uber’s mapping capabilities globally for rideshare and food deliveries.

The agreement builds on HERE and Uber’s existing partnership and will help bring further advanced location-aware tools and functions to the Uber platform.

With millions of rides a day, this means HERE will help work together to help provide safe and more accurate drop-off and pick-up points at locations, including airports, stadiums, arenas and high-traffic areas globally.

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