Hundreds of Grab delivery drivers gather in Bangkok to protest rule changes


Hundreds of Grab delivery drivers have joined a mass rally in Bangkok today, protesting rule changes they claim negatively affect their earnings. The GrabFood and GrabMart drivers say the new rules, which have been introduced by Grab, mean they will now earn less.

According to a Thai PBS World report, the drivers assembled in front of the Central World shopping complex in the Ratchaprasong area of the capital this morning. They then marched to the Grab offices on Phetchaburi Road.

The drivers are protesting a decision by Grab to introduce a zoning system, which will mean riders must operate within a dedicated zone, instead of across the capital.

The riders are also not happy about having to take 2 delivery orders at the same time, which reduces the delivery fee they get. Overall, the drivers say the new rules have a negative impact on their earnings and restrict their rights.

The proliferation of motorbike delivery services has been part of a massive shift in the restaurant and food businesses, with fierce competition and tiny margins making the industry very competitive and cut-throat.
