Uber will continue to grow beyond just offering a taxi service to a point where it can deliver food in one minute as it increasingly sees itself a "logistics platform", its head of global operations told CNBC.
In a wide-ranging interview, Ryan Graves, who was also the chief executive of the San Francisco-based firm for a short time in 2010 and also the startup's first employee, said experiments in food delivery and even delivering flu jabs will continue, with other areas to follow.
"As we scale, you know, the delivery times will go from five to three to one minute. And all of a sudden, you will come to Uber for more things. You'll be able to get food, you'll be able to get product, you'll be able to get around town. And that's really what I'm focused on," Graves told CNBC.
The ride-sharing app – which is valued at over $50 billion – also offers a service called UberEATS in 12 cities in which it says it delivers meals from local restaurants in 10 minutes or less. Another service it trialed recently called UberHEALTH saw it deliver $10 wellness packs to people as well as a free flu shot for up to 10 people.
