A new law in Spain has impacted several food delivery companies, such as: Stuart, Glovo, Just Eat, Uber Eats and several others big players of this industry. Can Smart Lockers save Spain from the ‘Riders Law’?

With that said, market makers need a new solution that enables them to save money and therefore maintain the workers they currently have.

This market generates around 700€ million for the Spanish economy. For the Spanish Government, it is a very important point of interest.

Companies like Just Eat or Uber Eats expect to significantly reduce their workforce in the face of this new reality. This creates different scenarios like the one’s listed below:
