Lectro, the EV arm of the Hero Motors Company (HMC), has announced new
partnerships with logistics service providers Fast Despatch Logistics and
Turtle Mobility as part of a new ecosystem to enable greater use of e-mobility
in last mile delivery. Under the partnership, Hero Lectro’s e cargo bikes will
be rolled out into the last mile delivery space by Fast Despatch Logistics.
Fast Despatch Logistics (FDL) is a global last mile delivery logistics company
which has recently marked its entry in India, Turtle Mobility is a startup that
offers solutions for last mile delivery logistics needs including vehicles on
the agreement between the parties, Hero Lectro’s e cargo bikes are being
procured by Turtle Mobility to be given out on lease to FDL. Fast Despatch
Logistics also has plans to augment its fleet of E-bikes to up to 15,000 by the
end of this year.
Hero Lectro recently launched its first e cargo bike Hero Lectro Winn and plans
to introduce another e cargo bike shortly for India’s rapidly growing last mile
delivery space which lacks purpose-built cargo vehicles. A light engineered e-
bike with specially crafted storage and payload capacity such as Hero Lectro
Winn offers a highly cost-effective solution by significantly lowering the cost
per litre of goods storage space. With Winn, delivery agents can overcome the
challenge of load limit associated with motorized two wheelers as well as
performance anxiety associated with other electric vehicles.
