Thank you for attending PHTM Expo 2021! What a few days it has been - we've loved meeting in person and showcasing all that we have to offer with you. We hope you enjoyed the last few days as much as we have.
We delivered a number of insightful talks across the last couple of days. Take a look through the key highlights below ⬇
2X4Y - The future of the taxi industry
CEO Safa Alkateb, launched Autocab's vision for the future of the industry with 2x4y. Put simply, it's to double the size of the market in four years. We also introduced iGo Delivery to help you drive demand. This is an opportunity for the entire taxi and private hire industry.
As a company, we have the investment and technology to do this and there's no industry better or more efficient at transporting things from A to B.
We believe this is an ambitious, but achievable goal.
12 features to help tackle your driver shortage
Sales Director, Hassan Abod, presented 12 innovative features we have been developing over the last 12 months that can maximise your business and tackle your driver shortage.
Keep your eyes peeled for more information on these features and how they can help your business.
iGo Delivery - Why you should launch a food delivery service
Delivery Lead, Ryan Schofield, shared his views on why you should take the plunge and enter the delivery market.
Today, the delivery sector is worth £11.5 billion. As an industry, we're experts in transport and can offer a more competitive service and price than other delivery platforms.
Plus, we announced the launch of iGo Delivery - our vision for how we can transform the delivery market and put the taxi and private hire industry at the centre of mobility.

'Local Cab' - Meet the Operators
CEO, Safa Alkateb, hosted a Q&A with Amir Khan, 001 Taxis Oxford, David McIntosh, Need-A-Cab & David Hunter, Take Me Group. They shared insights as to why they went live with Uber and their experience to date, hesitations and plans for the future.
David McIntosh from Need-A-Cab, addressed why he signed up to 'Local Cab':
"We already had a really good customer base - we had nearly 60,000 regular app users who use the Autocab app. We're popular with American tourists and thought with them coming to the UK and being able to use the Uber app, they'd book our cars. It's more work for our drivers and more revenue for our company."
We will be announcing another opportunity for you to find out more about the 'Local Cab' initiative soon.
