On Saturday, Zypp, a two-wheeler logistics startup with a fleet of 100 e-scooters, started its operations in Hyderabad. This marks their entry into the southern market. The company also plans to instal 20-battery charging and swapping stations to smoothly run these electric vehicles. Zypp has collaborated with e-retail, grocery, and food-tech giants such as Grofers, SPAR Hypermarkets, Bigbasket, and more to speed up the last-mile delivery.
The reports suggest that this delivery will be executed through professionally-trained male and female riders. All the deliveries will be taken care of using API-integrated electric vehicles.
According to Akash Gupta, Co-founder, and CEO, Zypp Electric, they are excited to launch Zypp Electric's last-mile delivery services in the city with their 100 AI and IoT-enabled e-scooters. In the next 3-4 months, they are planning to expand their number to 500 EVs. Akash Gupta added that Zypp took time to start operations in the South Indian market as it first wanted to garner an EV leadership spot in the North. Zypp Electric, set up in 2017 with a fleet of over 1,000 e- scooters, is a player in the last-mile delivery segment. Hyderabad-based EV maker Etrio had joined hands with Zypp for supplying electric three-wheelers for its fleet.
