One of the most highly anticipated partnerships between Chinese O2O services could see a full rollout before the year’s end, with Didi Dache and Ele.me reportedly settling on partnership plans this week.

Ele.me CEO Zhang Xuhao confirmed to Chinese press that the two companies had reached an agreement on a “strategic program” between the two companies, though no financial details have yet been released.

Ele.me is China’s leading O2O food delivery service. Founded in 2009, the Shanghai-based company employs a wide network of two-wheel delivery drivers in partnership with restaurants all over China to provide on-demand food delivery through their namesake app ‘Ele.me’, Which in Chinese translates to ‘Hungry?’. Didi is the country’s largest ride-hailing service and is valued at over $16 billion USD.
