LetsTransport plans to augment its fleet with 1,000 EVs to drive sustainable growth

With an aim to drive sustainable growth of intra-city and last-mile logistics, LetsTransport will augment its electric vehicle (EV) fleet on its platform to 1,000 by June 2022.

Having already commenced EV-led operations in Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Mumbai, LetsTransport will now introduce EVs to its fleet in Chennai, Pune and Kolkata.

The tech logistics company has already tied up with 8 OEMs towards strengthening the EV fleet across cities. Currently, the 100-vehicle strong EV fleet includes three-wheeler vehicles from Piaggio, Etrio, ETO, Altigreen and Kinetic, with a payload capacity of 500 kgs and these operate either with fixed batteries and swappable battery systems.

We are working with our customers to build cleaner and sustainable logistics solutions. With low operational and maintenance costs, we expect EV to play a pivotal role in intra-city and last mile logistics, and we are well prepared for it. In augmenting our fleet, we are also contributing to strengthening the EV ecosystem by enabling financing of EVs, setting up charging infrastructure as well as enabling a marketplace for resale of EVs in the near future. This in turn will encourage more driver-entrepreneurs to move to EVs as it becomes a more profitable asset.”

The new vehicles are expected to also include 4 wheelers with a payload capacity of up to 2 tonnes. The primary deployment of these EVs is in intracity, last-mile logistics for e-commerce, retail, FMCG and 3PL distribution sectors. Some of LetsTransport’s customers include Grab, Amazon, Big Basket, Delivery, DHL, Coca Cola and ITC.
