Swiggy has introduced a nationwide road safety initiative called ‘Delivering Safely,’ reinforcing its dedication to ensuring the well-being of its delivery partners.

As a prominent figure in food, quick commerce, and various on-demand services, Swiggy operates with over 300,000 delivery partners across more than 600 cities nationwide.

Swiggy’s delivery partners collectively cover an impressive distance of 3.6 billion kilometers annually, equivalent to approximately 90,000 trips around the Earth’s equator.

In recent years, Swiggy has been actively engaged in raising awareness among its delivery partners, simplifying the process for them to report safety incidents and enabling Swiggy to take prompt action.

“Swiggy’s mission is rooted in making urban life more convenient for our customers. Improving road safety in our cities is not just a goal; it’s a necessity for enhancing the daily lives and safety of everyone. Congestion is a genuine concern, and as providers of food delivery, quick commerce, and other on-demand services, we believe we’re playing a practical role in alleviating this issue.” said Rohit Kapoor, CEO of Food Marketplace, Swiggy.

Swiggy ensures comprehensive support for its delivery partners’ safety and well-being through various initiatives. This includes accidental medical coverage providing INR 2 lakh for medical expenses and INR 10 lakh as death cover, with over INR 31 Crores disbursed in insurance claims during FY23.

Additionally, Swiggy introduced an industry-first on-demand ambulance service, with an average response time of 11 minutes, for its delivery partners and their families.

In the event of any incident, Swiggy guarantees a minimum income to delivery partners to aid in their recovery, aligned with the average earnings in their respective cities.

Road safety awareness workshops are conducted in collaboration with state traffic police departments to promote safe driving practices, complemented by access to advanced safety gear.

Furthermore, Swiggy is developing an advanced telematics project to monitor driving behaviors and provide specialized training to at-risk delivery partners based on data analysis.
