Yulu, an Indian manufacturer of electric two-wheelers, has established a partnership with Zepto, an expanding online grocery delivery business.
The partnership will increase Yulu’s market share in the rapidly expanding hyperlocal delivery space across Bengaluru, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Delhi, and Gurugram while enabling Zepto to transition to an all-electric vehicle fleet and increase its green delivery volume, as reported by Entrepreneur.com.
“We are elated to announce our association with Zepto. Partnerships like these reaffirm Yulu’s commitment to powering green and sustainable deliveries across the country. Our full-stack micro-mobility solution improves operational efficiencies for hyperlocal logistics companies and lowers their delivery costs, while simultaneously unlocking better livelihoods and earnings for their delivery partners. We look forward to jointly working with Zepto to make hyperlocal deliveries greener, smarter, and more inclusive,” said Pradeep Puranam, Head – Revenue and Operations, Yulu.
The company added that, as part of the collaboration, Yulu and Zepto will advertise each other’s product and service offerings across both digital and physical touchpoints. It also aims to provide partners with sustainable livelihoods, particularly for those without a driver’s licence or their own vehicle.
“At Zepto, we are committed to building next-generation last-mile delivery- a model rooted in opportunity, efficiency and sustainability. Our operations have been true to this promise since day 1. A majority of Zepto deliveries now are powered by environment-friendly vehicles. Partnerships like these not only help us further this effort but also help bring in a workforce by providing them with vehicles, thereby increasing employability. We are excited to unlock the next milestone in sustainable deliveries with Yulu,” commented Vikas Sharma, COO, Zepto.
Yulu, the leading provider of shared micromobility services in India, uses electric two-wheelers to lessen air pollution and traffic congestion in Indian cities. The utilisation of Yulu service for last-mile commutes and deliveries has a significant impact on India’s objective of electrifying its mobility by 2030.
