Chevron offers cost effective packages for Careem captains

KARACHI: Chevron Pakistan Lubricants (Private) Limited has partnered with Careem to offer cost effective oil change packages for Careem captains at participating Caltex Oil Change facilities across Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

The partnership is being hailed by both companies as a means to minimise the financial cost on the drivers [called captains] during the pandemic. The signing ceremony for the strategic partnership was attended by Chevron Pakistan Country Chairman and Area Business Manager Ahmed Zahid Zaheer and Careem Pakistan CEO and Country General Manager Zeeshan Hasib Baig among other top officials from the respective companies.

Commenting on the occasion, Zaheer said, “People, partnership and performance are at the core of what we do and Careem’s customer-focused values mirror our own, so we are looking forward to working together. Chevron is renowned for world-class products and services in the lubricants industry, and always strives to provide innovative solutions to the market.”

Careem CEO commented, “Captains are at the heart of what we do at Careem, and we appreciate and value their selfless service to our customers and communities in these unprecedented times. Taking care of our captains, both financially and physically, is one of our priority areas. This partnership with Chevron Pakistan will enable our captains to avail a host of attractive packages needed to run their vehicles smoothly.”

“Any cost advantages from this partnership are limited to Careem captains and will not be translated into lower fares for customers of the ride hailing service”, Careem told Profit in a statement, adding “In recent events, Careem has also announced a range of initiatives to help its captains including a health insurance scheme, a new sick pay policy for those identified as COVID-19 positive”. Careem, which recently became a Super App, has more than 500,000 Captains registered on its platform so far.
