In Germany Uber does not operate like it does in America, instead they work with private hire vehicle (PHV) companies together with their licensed drivers.
But this ban by the court withdraws every license they have to offer rides in the seven cities where they operate in Germany.
Some of the issues which led to the license withdrawal includes several problems with Uber’s dispatching process, and the fact that drivers could accept jobs in the app without going through their employer first.
According to the court “Uber provides the service itself and is therefore an entrepreneur.”
Also responding to the situation, a spokesperson from Uber said that “We will assess the court’s ruling and determine next steps to ensure our services in Germany continue. “
