Uber Technologies Inc is seeking options for its Uber Elevate business, including either “a strategic partnership or a partial sale”, reports axios.com citing multiple sources. The move reflects CEO Dara Khosrowshahi’s “obsession with achieving profitability”, the report added.
This alleged decision reflects Khosrowshahi’s need for profitability, evidenced by a partial sale of Uber’s money-losing freight and self-driving units. The company’s goal is to develop a network of self-driving taxis, with its website suggesting a launch year of 2023.
It also had a helicopter service running in New York City, but suspended those operations during the pandemic. The unit has around 80 employees.
The report states Uber has declined to comment.
