ZYPP Electric Mobility, one of the leading electric mobility startups in India has announced the successful delivery of 5 lakh + shipments for its customers in the last 4 months since the outbreak of COVID-19. The last mile electric startup has partnered with top e-commerce and e-grocery companies like Amazon, Big Basket, Future Group, Flipkart, Spencers, and many more hyperlocal merchants and helped them deliver essentials to their end customers homes.

The Gurgaon based electric mobility startup ZYPP Electric (formerly Mobycy) was established in 2017 by Akash Gupta and Rashi Agarwal.

Akash Gupta, CEO – ZYPP

Akash Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder of ZYPP Electric Mobility said, “eGrocery is growing at 30 percent CAGR in India and this is pre-covid growth. Now post COVID-19, last-mile delivery is touching a new inflection point and we as Zypp Electric are able to provide upto 20 percent savings to our customers on every delivery which is huge savings at scale in the logistics eco-system.

Zypp Electric is here to disrupt the last mile ecosystem and would try and target 100 percent of last-mile logistics to go Electric by 2025 which is what Delhi EV policy also suggests. Zypp has worked aggressively in the last 12 months to build the fleet, the infra, the tech, has a network of trained riders and also all key partners already working with us. Hence, COVID-19 has acted as the moment of demonetisation for last-mile deliveries.”

Primarily focusing on last-mile delivery service, the startup has additionally taken several initiatives to ensure the safety of riders / the delivery executives whom they call as Zypp Pilots. Sanitizing bikes, delivering electric scooters at the doorstep, delivering food and grocery at the doorsteps of the customers on behalf of the aggregators and local markets, etc.

KB Nagaraju, Chief Customer Experience Officer, bigbasket, said, “bigbasket is committed to providing the best possible services to customers and ensuring that deliveries are done in an environmentally sustainable yet timely manner. It is towards this end that we have partnered with Zypp to enable last-mile delivery services. We look forward to a long-term partnership and ensuring that bigbasketeers get the best of customer experience without any hassles.”

The startup aims at further strengthening its Delivery and Hyperlocal business and serve many more customers in the run who are wanting to move D2C or from Offline to Online (O2O) business models. Currently functional in 4 cities, it is also looking at going deeper into the existing markets and expanding to new 6-8 cities where there’s enormous demand coming in.
