The alliance is formed in collaboration with DBL Pharma, Zantrik, Dettol (Reckitt Benckiser) and Fresh Tissue

To help contain the spread of Covid-19 and to set the highest safety standards in these challenging times, Uber has spearheaded the formation of a Transport Safety Alliance (TSA) in partnership with DBL Pharma, Zantrik, Dettol (Reckitt Benckiser) and Fresh Tissue. 

The alliance will generate safety awareness amongst consumers, and equip drivers with necessary health and safety supplies to ensure safer rides.

As a part of the alliance, Uber and its allies will distribute key safety supplies such as masks, soaps, tissues, and sanitizers to its drivers from Zantrik-provided distribution points.

Reckitt Benckiser will provide Dettol soap bars free of charge, and Fresh will contribute tissue paper boxes for distributing to drivers.

In April, DBL Pharma had sponsored all costs of a third party led initiative, Project Crack Platoon, which transported healthcare professionals using Uber driver partners, who were provided with full-bodied PPE.

This time around, DBL will provide masks for Uber driver-partners.

Commenting on the formation of the TSA, Ratul Ghosh, Uber’s head in East India & Bangladesh, said: “In these challenging times, the one thing that hasn’t changed is Uber’s commitment towards the economy, safety of our communities, and to #MoveWhatMatters. 

“We formed this alliance with the single objective of joining forces with reputed organizations and brands to provide the highest safety standards. I am thankful to all our partners for their valuable contributions.”

He added: “As always, we will continue to invest in tech, safety protocols, and will comply with all government guidelines to help keep everyone who uses the Uber platform safe.” 

Vishal Gupta, general manager at Reckitt Benckiser (Bangladesh) Ltd said: “We believe Dettol has a critical role to play in promoting hygiene and health in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and we are trying to take every measure to ensure that. We are thankful to all the partners and committed to ensure the objectives of this alliance are achieved.”
