Hyderabad-based start-up Dao EV Tech, a Chinese electric scooter manufacturing company formed by a group of professionals from the USA, China and India has entered the last-mile delivery segment.
The start-up says it will offer services, software, and a specially designed e-scooter under one integrated solution under the brand ‘Dao Zor EV Integrated fleet Partner Program’. The company says its integrated service platform will enable the delivery partner, OEM, 3PL and delivery companies to come together using AI and IoT to make the ecosystem of the last-mile delivery industry efficient and sustainable. It has launched Dao Zor 405, which it claims is the first-of-its-kind specially designed e2W for the delivery business in India.
The Dao Zor Integrated Fleet Partner Program is said to bring about a paradigm shift on three levels: firstly, there is no need for a delivery partner to come to work with his vehicle. Dao will create an ecosystem that provides electric vehicles to the new city migrants. Secondly, the ecosystem will also provide investment opportunities to enable micro investors to build an EV fleet to tap the fast-growing potential in the last mile delivery industry. And lastly, Dao Zor will fulfill this requirement by providing hi-tech designed EVs with smart solutions.
The Dao Zor Integrated Fleet Partner Program provides:
- Specially designed vehicles for e-commerce delivery, which can hold up to 225kg of payload weight with a special side stand that holds the weight. These EVs can cover a daily average of 100km on a single charge.
- Software solution: Dao’s IoT protects the vehicle asset with remote vehicle disabling and tracking capabilities.
- Additionally, it will provide training enabling city migrants with the right soft skills, providing accommodation and health care support.
For the 3PL investors, Dao says it will provide day-to-day management services and act as their agency for consolidation of orders and provide AI, IoT enabled cross platform vehicle deployment.
