Uber Eats and Zoomo have joined forces in London to introduce high-performance electric mopeds for food delivery couriers
This collaboration bolsters Uber’s commitment to make all its food delivery trips in major European cities emission-free by 2030. Through this partnership, Uber Eats couriers gain access to a sustainable and affordable transportation solution. This aligns with the company’s goal of achieving emission-free deliveries in London by the end of this decade. That ambition extends to the rest of the world by 2040.
Zoomo, a prominent player in the last-mile electric fleet solutions sector, will incorporate these electric mopeds into their existing portfolio. This initiative is unique for the discount offered to couriers on the monthly and weekly rental costs of these electric mopeds. The aim is to encourage a seamless transition from petrol to electric mopeds. In doing so, the partnership addresses the substantial carbon emissions arising from the transportation sector. Urban deliveries are a leading contributor to the UK’s emissions.
Nicolas de Juniac, UK General Manager at Zoomo, said:
“We admire Uber’s commitments to reduce the carbon footprint of food delivery trips. By joining forces with Uber Eats to enhance courier access to E-mopeds, we’re not only taking significant strides toward a greener delivery landscape but also setting the stage for a more sustainable and efficient industry – and this is just the beginning.
We’re excited to work closely with Uber Eats, growing our partnership and leading the charge toward a brighter, eco-conscious future, all while empowering valued couriers. It’s a win-win-win partnership: for the environment, for our riders, and for Zoomo.”
Matthew Price, Uber Eats General Manager of UK, Ireland and Northern Europe Uber Eats, said:
“I am delighted to be expanding our partnership with Zoomo to offer high-performance e-Mopeds to couriers in London. It is our goal to be emission free in London by 2030 and globally by 2040, and with this partnership we are moving towards that goal”.”
his partnership not only furthers Uber’s environmental commitment but also underscores Zoomo’s dedication to transitioning urban miles to light electric vehicles. The move not only benefits the environment but also empowers couriers with efficient, reliable, and green mobility solutions. Collaborations like this one ought to become a regular fixture as cities and local authorities worldwide seek to slash their emissions. With electrified deliveries, we’re a huge step closer to quiet, clean city centres.
