Hero Electric, India’s largest electric two-wheeler company, has delivered the first batch out of 1000 electric scooters to the delivery partners of Shadowfax Technologies, India’s largest crowdsourced third-party logistics platform for last-mile delivery. Mr. Piyush Prasad, Business Head, Hero Electric, and Mr. Praharsh Chandra, Co-founder and COO, Shadowfax, attended the delivery ceremony in Bengaluru, Karnataka.
In a strategic partnership with Hero Electric, Shadowfax plans to convert 75% of its fleet to EVs by 2025. Hero Electric’s two-wheeler EVs will be utilized by Shadowfax’s delivery partners to ensure sustainability in last-mile logistics. As part of its ‘No Emission’ mission, Hero Electric is forging multiple B2B partnerships in the delivery segment as it fronts the shift from combustion engine vehicles to EVs. With the government promoting sustainable mobility projects, the improving infrastructure is propelling a faster change of B2B fleets to electric in the delivery segment.
“We are delighted with our association with Shadowfax. Delivering these 100 e-scooters is only the beginning of a long and symbiotic partnership. The last-mile delivery segment is growing at an unprecedented pace, with more businesses switching towards a sustainable EV ecosystem to reach their company goals. This partnership will ensure a carbon-free fleet in the logistics market while catering to consumer needs and minimizing emissions. Policymakers across central and state governments continue to encourage this shift as more businesses opt for cleaner solutions to reach their consumers. At Hero, we strive to provide 360-degree solutions to our B2B customers through our strong network presence across India.”Mr. Sohinder Gill, CEO of Hero Electric
