Gogoro and Swiggy collaborate to use EVs for last-mile deliveries
Swiggy, an Indian delivery service, and Gogoro Inc., a world leader in battery-swapping ecosystems, announced a vehicle alliance.
Gogoro Electric Smartscooters will be promoted by Swiggy to last-mile delivery partners all around the nation.
“Accelerating the electric transformation of India’s hyperlocal fleets is a top priority for Gogoro and India’s national and city governments. Partnering with Swiggy, a leading player in the industry, to provide access to Gogoro Smartscooters and battery swapping is essential in successfully transforming India’s urban fleets to electric,” said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro. “Together, Swiggy and Gogoro will provide a seamless path for riders to adopt sustainable electric transportation and improve their business efficiency.”
“This partnership with Gogoro is another key step in our commitment to creating greener and cost-effective solutions for our delivery fleet,” said Mihir Shah, Head of Operations at Swiggy. “We believe in providing our delivery partners with access to the latest innovations in sustainable transportation that reduce rider interruptions, improve earnings and make deliveries more efficient. Gogoro’s battery swapping technology represents a new generation of electric refueling that has proven successful on a mass scale for last-mile delivery, and we look forward to working with them to transform hyperlocal deliveries to be more sustainable and efficient in India.”
Swiggy committed to using EV delivery to travel 8 lakh kilometers daily in 2021.
With strategic alliances with market leaders like Reliance BP Mobility Limited and Hero Lectro, the company, which has been at the forefront of sustainable mobility since, has made tremendous progress in adopting electric cars for last-mile deliveries.
Due to this, delivery partners have been able to reduce their vehicle operating costs by up to 40%, which has boosted their income.
In addition to providing the best alternative to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, last-mile delivery fleets need a sustainable solution that is well adapted to the particular segment requirements of the delivery business. The most advanced two-wheel battery switching technology is provided by the Gogoro platform, allowing delivery operators to manage their fleets and deliveries more sustainably and effectively.
