SF New Deal leverages rideOS’ new delivery products to power their meal delivery service in the San Francisco Bay Area

Press Release updated: Jul 29, 2020 06:55 PDT


rideOS, a technology platform that creates intelligent and optimized routes for fleets of vehicles, today announced its partnership with SF New Deal. The collaboration enabled SF New Deal to streamline operations and increase the number of meals they deliver each day. The partnership began two months ago and is another example of how rideOS technology increases delivery network capacity.

SF New Deal is a non-profit organization founded in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The organization focuses on connecting local restaurants facing overwhelming losses of revenue with at-risk and food-insecure San Franciscans. Their three programs are funded both privately and with government COVID aid and focus on paying restaurant owners to make meals that are delivered to San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations. SF New Deal is using rideOS’ Optimization product to facilitate many of these meal deliveries. 

“One of our major goals at SF New Deal has been to take opportunities, such as federally funded contracts that previously would be restricted to only giant companies and make them available to the small local businesses,” said SF New Deal Founder and Executive Director Lenore Estrada. “rideOS’ products have enabled our restaurants and small courier services to participate in new revenue streams by participating in community feeding. Using rideOS’ efficient delivery routes means that our organization can spend less time thinking about logistics challenges and spend more time providing caring service to our clients and participating small businesses.”

The partnership announcement highlights rideOS’ recent expansion into supporting delivery and logistics networks for fleets of human-driven and autonomous vehicles. The rideOS platform provides Routing and Optimization products to efficiently match vehicles to complete sets of tasks. The rideOS platform is flexible by design, making it uniquely capable to support any vehicle type and a variety of use-cases. 

“At rideOS, we believe in doing good by using our technology to serve our people, partners, and communities,” said rideOS Co-Founder and CEO Justin Ho. “My hope for announcing this partnership is to raise more awareness within the technology industry about the important work being done by SF New Deal.”
