Bengaluru-based advanced battery technology startup Log9 Materials has partnered with Chennai-based startup Pi Beam to boost the last-mile delivery operations of the latter using Log9’s InstaCharge battery technology. The partnership was finalised recently with both companies signing a MoU.

As a part of this collaboration, Log9 Materials will deliver a large number of Rage+ RapidEV electric 3-Wheeler fleets powered by Log9’s RapidX batteries that get fully charged from 0 to 100 percent within 35 minutes. Notably, the Rage+ RapidEV has been developed jointly by Omega Seiki Mobility and Log9 Materials.

Log9’s InstaCharge battery technology will empower Pi Beam’s fleets to have more uptime, efficiency, and better return on investment. Furthermore, data-driven analytics from these RapidEV fleets will enable them to optimise their route planning for hyper-local last-mile deliveries. The partnership also brings Pi Beam under the aegis of Log9’s responsible Delivery Movement initiative, a first-of-its-kind initiative in India to fight against climate change by working proactively to reduce last-mile delivery emissions. The objective of Responsible Delivery Movement is to accelerate India’s e-mobility adoption and bring down India’s transportation and logistics emissions intensity by up to 33 percent by 2030.

Speaking on the partnership, Dr Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials said, “We are confident that this partnership will go a long way to give an impetus to the transformation of India’s conventional last-mile logistics operations to sustainable electric mobility. This is also in line with Log9’s initiative of Responsible Delivery Movement.”

Pi Beam offers end-to-end micro-mobility sustainable EV solutions along with data-driven analytics, particularly to augment productivity in last-mile logistics and transportation space.
