Bengaluru March 22nd, 2023: Blive, India’s leading multi-brand EV store, has made history by deploying electric kickscooters for food delivery at Mumbai and Delhi international airports, marking the first platform in India to do so. Blive has partnered with Lite Bite Foods (LBF) and Devyani International Limited (DIL), two of India’s largest food chain operators, to provide sustainable EV solutions that benefit over 30,000 air travelers daily at the busiest airports in the country. This move is aimed at reducing food delivery time, minimizing waiting periods for customers, bringing more convenience to the delivery staff, reducing carbon footprint, and enabling a hassle-free airport experience.
With travel picking up and more flyers coming in, DIL and LBF had to address challenges such as ensuring timely delivery of orders and minimizing waiting times with sustainable solutions. Their staff had to walk the distance from counters to customers, and the vastness of the airport resulted in dropped orders, worker exhaustion, and longer waiting times for customers. By adopting electric kickscooters for deliveries provided by Blive, the food chain operators were not only able to cater to the heightened customer demands and enhance staff performance but were also able to contribute to sustainability targets with clean mobility.
Blive is supporting its partners in taking their first step towards sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint by entering this partnership with DIL and LBF. Blive’s EV solutions will enable them to essay the collective responsibility of combating climate change with innovative and clean solutions. In the second stage of this partnership, the multi-brand EV platform will expand its EV solutions to over 655 outlets of DIL and over 150+ outlets of LBF to promote and achieve 100% e-mobility adoption in India.
Speaking on this, Mr.Samarth Kholkar, CEO & Co-Founder, BLive, said ” We have always strived to find innovative solutions to the existing challenges with e-mobility. The demand for electric vehicles for delivery is huge. Mumbai airport is one of the busiest and important airports globally. Here, our partners were facing difficulties with heightened customer demands and increase in passenger footfall. We are glad that the electric scooters provided by us not only helped them in addressing their challenges in timely food delivery but also supported them in their transition to clean mobility. We believe such innovative steps and meaningful collaborations can help achieve business objectives and also align organisations with the larger goal of achieving our sustainability targets for a cleaner, greener and better future.”
Blive, a digital-first, multi-brand EV store, has expanded its presence in India with 19 stores. The company recently partnered with Deloitte as its knowledge partner to leverage the consulting firm’s industry expertise in dealer onboarding. With the goal of having 100 EV stores by 2024, the brand is planning to expand to new locations to promote EV adoption, accelerate decarbonization, and combat climate change.
