The convoy is expected to end with the handing over of a memo and notice of demand at the Grab headquarters.

The strike was planned following allegations of unfair compensation paid to the food delivery riders.

News portal The New Straits Times also spoke to consumers, who said there have been some differences to their online food order experience this morning.
