Yulu, a shared electric mobility as a service (MaaS) player, has tied up with Zomato.
With this, the food delivery app will now use Yulu's DeX EV for intra-city deliveries. To kickstart this project, 25,000-35,000 Yulu's will be given to delivery partners on Zomato’s platform for last-mile deliveries. Yulu is offering Zomato custom-made rental plans.
Pradeep Puranam, head - revenue and operations, Yulu, said, “We are excited to associate with Zomato given our mutual concern towards the environment and the need of giving delivery partners a safe, dependable, and sustainable mode of commute for daily deliveries. With Yulu’s deep understanding of the delivery ecosystem, purpose-built product DeX, robust operations and a wide network of battery swapping stations, our solutions can improve earnings of delivery partners by up to 40%. There is an increasing desire towards reducing carbon footprint among customers as well, so this is a win-win for customers, delivery executives and both the companies.”
Mohit Sardana, COO, food delivery, Zomato, said, “At Zomato, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and the communities we serve. We are thrilled to associate with Yulu, to make the last-mile delivery operations more sustainable and efficient. As part of The Climate Group's EV100 initiative, we have committed to transitioning our delivery fleet to 100% electric, and with Yulu's support, we are glad to be on the right path to achieve this target. We are excited to continue our efforts to create a greener Zomato and a better world for all.”
