Flipkart partners with Mahindra Logistics to boost its delivery network
Walmart-owned Flipkart has partnered with Mahindra Logistics to strengthen its last-mile delivery with the use of electric vehicles (EVs).
With Mahindra Logistics, Flipkart aims to make a sustainable transition to EVs and plans to deploy over 25,000 EVs in the fleet by 2030.
Mahindra Logistics multi-city presence across Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, and Hyderabad is expected to help Flipkart's pan-India supply chain.
Commenting on the partnership, Rampraveen Swaminathan, CEO of Mahindra Logistics in a statement said: “Mahindra Logistics will enable Flipkart in its journey towards building a green supply chain by building supporting infrastructure and technology such as charging stations and parking lots, training workforce, route planning and battery swapping stations in the near future.”
Hemant Badri, senior vice president supply chain at Flipkart Group, added: “Electrification of the logistics fleet is an important part of Flipkart's larger sustainability goal and a key focus area for the company. We are happy to have Mahindra Logistics onboard as a logistics partner, who will play a major role in helping us achieve our vision of making our logistics fleet fully electric by 2030.”
Flipkart had earlier partnered with leading electric vehicle manufacturers, including Hero Electric, Mahindra Electric, and Piaggio, to deploy EVs in its logistics fleet across the country.
