The collaboration between the two is being positioned as a lucrative proposition to all the parties, including the Uber partners or the owner driver of the ride hailing service. While Uber claims to have launched the app that extends the ability to shop during the commute, it is the Cargo Store mobile app that Uber passengers need to download.
