Yulu And Zomato Join Hands To Make Last-Mile Deliveries Green

* Committed to sustainability, both companies have a vision to take this association to scale the usage of electric vehicles (EV) for deliveries in 2023

* Powered by Yulu’s purpose built for delivery electric vehicle - the DeX, that allows delivery partners to deliver in comfort and maximize their earnings

Yulu, India’s largest shared electric Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) player today announced its association with Zomato for using Yulu DeX EV for intra-city deliveries. Kicking off this project, about 25,000 - 35,000 Yulu DeX will be given to delivery partners onboarded on Zomato’s platform for last-mile deliveries on custom-made rental plans. Yulu is committed to making urban transportation sustainable and the association with Zomato is a significant step towards making last-mile delivery green and efficient.

Rising fuel prices and financial challenges are significant barriers for youth who want to onboard themselves as delivery partners. Yulu DeX  solves most of these challenges, and provides a mobility solution that is very easy to access for all. Yulu has flexible rental packs and allows delivery partners to earn higher earnings compared to ICE-vehicles. Along with this, the delivery partners get access to Yuma Energy’s wide network of battery swapping stations to minimise their downtime during last-mile deliveries. Once deployed, these 25,000+ Yulu DeX have the potential of serving 3 Lakh green deliveries every day by 2026.

Pradeep Puranam, Head - Revenue & 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 at 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.”

This association with Zomato bears greater significance in Yulu’s endeavour to offer smart and affordable green mobility solutions to the delivery partners over the next few years. Over 4,000 delivery partners as of February 2023, onboarded on Zomato’s platform organically utilise Yulu’s EVs to make the last-mile deliveries.

Till date, Yulu has enabled 75 Mn+ green deliveries and benefited 50,000+ delivery partners..
