Yulu partners with Zepto to maximise green deliveries

Yulu, India’s largest shared electric two-wheeler mobility player, today announced a partnership with Zepto, India’s e-grocery service, to maximise green deliveries. The association will expand Yulu’s presence in the fast-growing hyperlocal delivery category in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Delhi, and Gurugram, while enabling Zepto to move to an all-electric vehicle fleet.

The partnership will see Yulu deploying 20,000 next-generation shared DeX EVs for
Zepto’s delivery partners. This will create sustainable livelihoods for these partners,
especially those who don’t have a driving license or a vehicle of their own. Under the terms of the synergistic partnership, Yulu and Zepto will promote each other’s products and services across offline and online touchpoints.

By using Yulu’s affordable and shared mobility services, these riders will be empowered to earn and save more. The association is also expected to encourage more women to choose delivery as a profession, the press release noted. 

Pradeep Puranam, Head – Revenue and Operations at Yulu, said, “Partnerships like these reaffirm Yulu’s commitment to powering green and sustainable deliveries across the country. Our full-stack micro-mobility solution improves operational efficiencies for hyperlocal logistics companies and lowers their delivery costs, while simultaneously unlocking better livelihoods and earnings for their delivery partners.”

Vikas Sharma, COO of Zepto said, “ A majority of Zepto deliveries now are powered by environment-friendly vehicles. Partnerships like these not only help us further this effort but also help bring in a workforce by providing them with vehicles, thereby increasing employability."
