According to the recent reports, fully-rental electric scooter renting startup Zypp has collaborated with Spencers Retail to assist in the delivery of essential commodities amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The service will presently be available in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Noida.
Apart from Spencers Retail, Zypp has already partnered with companies like Bigbasket, Apollo Pharmacy, Modern Bazaar, and Sodhi Super Market to ramp up essential goods’ delivery. Moreover, it is already working with Swiggy and Zomato in the food delivery space.
Akash Gupta, Co-Founder of Zypp confirmed that the startup is dedicated to contributing in all ways possible amid the massive inconvenience being caused by the national lockdown. He said that through its collaborations, Zypp will deploy its fleet of e-scooters to ensure that groceries and other essential items are delivered to citizens.
The startup has also incorporated several cleanliness measures to ensure the safe and sanitized delivery of essential items. It has adopted the concept of contact-less deliveries and regular temperature checks of people involved in the deliveries.
Owned by Bycyshare Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Zypp was founded back in 2017. It provides ecological electric bikes to ease-up micro-mobility requirements for daily commuters. The service is powered by a bike-rental app, wherein users can simply scan a QR Code and get hold of their Bikes from a nearby pick-up location. All its bikes are equipped with chargeable batteries and easy access codes.
In the wake of the global health pandemic, Zypp has introduced a battery swapping infrastructure, with which users can get a new, fully-charged unit for just Rs.25 in order to complete their short-mile trips using sanitized electric scooters.
The COVID-19 outbreak has called for a collaborative mind-set where prominent organizations need to shake hands and come together to help consumers. To our delight, most of them have done so.
Apart from Zypp, major companies like Uber, Domino’s Pizza, Rapido, Swiggy, Zomato, and Scootsy have already tied up with Spensers, Big Basket, Grofers and Big Bazaar in India to assist in the delivery of essential commodities.
