NEW DELHI: SUN Mobility, a leading provider of energy infrastructure and services for electric vehicles (EVs), today announced a partnership with Zyngo, a hyperlocal 3 PL company dedicated to the last-mile & middle-mile delivery sector. In a live event, the two companies formally announced their partnership and operations in the city of Gurugram.
As part of this association, Zyngo’s fleet of E-Loaders/carriers will utilize SUN Mobility’s services through the network of Swap Points™, available at IOCL stations, to bolster its last-mile delivery services. The partnership has already witnessed 120 vehicles deployed across 4 cities – Gurugram, Delhi, Noida & Ghaziabad, and will aim to expand to 500 vehicles by end of 2021; contributing to its growing EV operations.
“The Government of Haryana envisions a systematic growth of Gurugram, with one of the focus areas being electric mobility. As part of our efforts to reduce pollution levels and generate employment opportunities in the state & make urban landscapes greener, this partnership between SUN Mobility & Zyngo is a major step in advancing our vision to develop Gurugram as the ‘smartest city’ in the country. I am excited to see startups and innovative business models in shared mobility & last mile connectivity like battery swapping, that can solve key challenges faced by this sector for mass adoption. We will extend every support to make this initiative a success,” conveyed the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Haryana, Shri. Manohar Lal Khattar, through a message, on the occasion of the partnership.
“The idea behind introducing Zyngo was the deeply rooted passion for logistics and technology. By creating an ecosystem controlled by our App, we will ensure ownership of EVs to the drivers & fleet operators. Our partnership with SUN Mobility’s will help provide a complete swapping ecosystem that will allow a pollution-free, seamless delivery service to our end customers,” said Prateek Rao – Founder and CEO, Zyngo. “We are the delivery partner of several E-commerce, FMCG, Retail and Pharma organizations, and our aim is to expand to become one of the leading EV logistics service-providers in the last mile sector,” he added.
“The E-commerce boom in the last 9 to 12 months has caused a surge in the last mile delivery segment. Players such as Amazon, Flipkart and BigBasket have expressed strong commitment to shift their delivery fleet to electric in the near future. Our partnership with Zyngo will allow us to accelerate clean last mile delivery operations, using vehicles powered by our open architecture energy platform. This enables ‘refueling’ of electric vehicles to be faster, cheaper, and more convenient. We are confident that with support from the Government of Haryana, we will be able to accelerate mass adoption of electric vehicles in Gurugram,” said Chetan Maini, Chairman & Co-Founder, SUN Mobility.
Zyngo vehicles powered by SUN Mobility’s swapping solution, intend to alleviate the key EV adoption challenges such as high battery replacement cost, battery maintenance, range anxiety and long charging time. This partnership will help in building an end-to-end holistic infrastructure for EVs in the delivery segment. In a short span of time, SUN Mobility’s platform has powered over 1,00,000+ deliveries, covering a total of 2,00,000+ emission free kms, in partnership with Zyngo.
