Grab announces a collaboration with HEINEKEN, which will enable the world’s most international brewer to plug into Grab’s platform of services to grow its digital business and extend its reach and convenience to customers and consumers in the region.

The collaboration kicks off in Singapore and Vietnam at the end of September. This will be followed by additional offerings in the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar and Cambodia.

The latest HEINEKEN-Grab partnership validates how Grab has extended its all-in-one platform offering to merchants and brand partners so that they too, get a frictionless experience. These merchants can gain seamless access to Grab’s wide user base, customer insights, payment and on-demand courier services, backed by its transport network and technology infrastructure, and integrate them into their operations to grow their business.
