foodpanda Pakistan, Pakistan’s leading delivery platform, has partnered with TPL Maps, Pakistan’s only licensed digital mapping company and the mapping arm of TPL Trakker, to power its food and grocery delivery app.
With operations in over 30 cities nationwide and a vast partner base, foodpanda Pakistan is the largest food delivery platform in the country. TPL Maps’ largest location-based dataset covering over 400 cities, 4.5 million geocoded addresses, and 600,000 km of road network across Pakistan is set to provide value, scalability, and performance via TPL Maps’ Location-Based Service (LBS) APIs. This will not only optimize foodpanda’s time efficiency and restaurant selection but also enhance their delivery services with orders delivered to the correct address at the right time.
A growing number of startups and established businesses in Pakistan are testing and choosing TPL Maps’ LBS APIs to make their digital assets location-enabled. With the power of LBS, such organizations are providing their users with pertinent location information for restaurants, tourist spots, retail, and other critical Points of Interest (POIs). As the leading local LBS provider in the country, TPL Trakker is poised to power the development of the on-demand digital economy – creating a modern, digital, productive, and globally competitive Pakistan. With the highest number of POIs and housing addresses data compared to any other mapping service in Pakistan, TPL Maps APIs will play a critical role for food delivery apps, ensuring customers are connected with the right restaurants at the right time.
Speaking on the collaboration, Sarwar Ali Khan, CEO, TPL Trakker said: “A leading food delivery service, like foodpanda Pakistan, choosing TPL Maps’ LBS APIs is a testament to the innovative work being done at TPL Trakker and the quality of our services.
