People in Southeast Asia can now do a little shopping during their trip with ride-hailing company Grab. The Uber-esque company is capitalizing on the mobile nature of its service, allowing its drives to become “mini convenience stores” selling riders an offering of snacks, beauty products and even phone chargers.

To enable this service, Grab partnered with New York-based Cargo, a startup specializing in connected and enhanced ride-hailing that has already worked with Lyft and Uber. According to the brand’s website, by adding a cargo box, drivers can make up to $300 extra per month.

The concept of offering upgraded and connected rides has the potential to not only maximize revenue for drivers and ride-sharing companies themselves, but is also also a clever way to boost customer satisfaction, capitalizing on the chance that on-the-go customers will be in need of added amenities and improving their ride experience.
