November 22, 2021: The EV-based startup in last-mile delivery Zypp Electric has recently organised the launch of the largest EV Logistics fleets with 100 out of two thousand EV two-wheelers amid the current pollution buzz in the city.
Amitabh Kant, CEO, Niti Aayog has done the flagging off of the fleets. This was done to support the “Mission zero-emission – Shoonya” a joint Initiative by NITI Aayog and RMI which aims at reducing pollution by accelerating the deployment of electric vehicles for final-mile deliveries. Through this event, Zypp Electric showcased its mission of sustainability and greener future. In this event, Zypp Electric has flagged off a large fleet of EV bikes with delivery executives as a mark of EV adoption.
“This event was the first step towards Zypp’s motto to achieve a renewable and sustainable mode of last mile deliveries to achieve zero carbon emission by 2030. In this event for the mark of safety, helmets were also distributed to all the riders,” reads the release.
Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog said “Zypp Electric set an example for the freight sector to go green. Everything which is committed to green mobility is committed to a shared and connected world. It is also committed to clean pollution in Delhi and also committed to providing better livelihood to the citizens and to the delivery people in India. And, therefore Zypp is a unique role model for others to emulate. This will help us transition from combustion to a shared connected electric world and therefore our belief is in Niti Aayog our belief is that if we will be able to do last-mile connectivity to the electric vehicles then this movement will spread and it will serve as a huge lesson for others and then others will emulate last mile connectivity and replicate the electric vehicle. We provided a long support through the fame scheme through the fastest option of electric vehicles. I am confident that the start-up community will lead India’s EV revolution by electrifying final-mile distribution.”
Logistics is growing day by day with the increase in the demands of the goods in a short span of time. To fill this gap NITI Aayog with RMI has started a campaign called Shoonya. Shoonya aims to fully electrify last mile deliveries. The vision of the campaign is to build awareness and demand for zero pollution delivery among consumers. With Shoonya, Zypp Electric will recognize and promote industry efforts towards fleet electrification. It will set the last mile delivery sector on a pathway to 100% electrification by 2030.
Akash Gupta, co-founder & CEO of Zypp Electric said “We are extremely proud to announce to support this unique initiative - Shoonya, a Zero Pollution Delivery campaign, which is launched by NITI Aayog and RMI. The main aim of this partnership is 100% electrification of the delivery of goods and services through EV that will not only help to curb air pollution but also to reduce the cost of last mile deliveries and increase driver earnings. We at Zypp Electric aim to reduce carbon emissions through its largest electric scooter fleet and by electrifying last mile logistics, this aligns perfectly with the Shoonya campaign. With Shoonya and Zypp coming in together, we are sure that we will achieve this mission together faster and save the planet.”
