Amazon.com has held preliminary talks with Indonesian ride-hailing company Go-Jek on a possible investment, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
The partnership involved a sizeable investment into Go-Jek, to tap into the Indonesian startup’s delivery infrastructure in the country, indicated the report.
Go-Jek currently has 20 services and has evolved from ride-sharing to allowing its customers to make online payments and order everything from food to groceries and hair services.
At the beginning of this year, Go-Jek announced the first closing of its ongoing Series F funding round led by Google, JD.com and Tencent, along with Mitsubishi Corporation and Provident Capital. Its other investors include Visa, Alphabet, Alibaba Group Holdings and Tencent Holdings.
