Uber to Deliver Christmas Trees Free of Charge in Berlin, Munichby
Uber Technologies Inc. drivers will deliver Christmas trees free of charge to residents of two German cities as the ride-share company studies a broader on-demand service across the country.
Uber has joined with online retailer Meine Tanne to offer boxed north German firs for 19.90 euros ($21.60), according to a statement Thursday. They’ll deliver for free in Berlin and Munich starting Dec. 20.
Uber, based in San Francisco, has offered a home delivery service in the U.S. for some time via its UberRUSH app, according to Germany General Manager Christian Freese. “It’s very conceivable that on-demand services will also become established in Germany in the long term,” he said in the statement.
