Blive has joined hands with Lite Bite Foods (LBF) and Devyani International Limited (DIL) to provide EV solutions and benefit over 30k air travellers daily in the country's busiest airports, the company said.
Bengaluru: The leading multi-brand EV store has deployed electric kick scooters for food delivery in Mumbai and Delhi international airports. Blive has joined hands with Lite Bite Foods (LBF) and Devyani International Limited (DIL) to provide EV solutions and benefit over 30k air travellers daily in the country's busiest airports, the company said.
DIL and LBF are counted among India's largest food chain operators housing prominent brands like KFC, Pizzahut, Costa Coffee, Punjab Grill and others. With this move, Blive is all set to help its partners in reducing food delivery time at airports, minimize waiting period for customers, bringing more convenience to the delivery staff, reducing carbon footprint and enabling a hassle-free airport experience, the company said in a media release.
With travel picking up and increasing footfall of flyers at the airport, DIL and LBF at Mumbai and Delhi airports were required to address the challenges like ensuring timely delivery of orders and minimizing waiting period with sustainable solutions. Their staff covered the distance from counters to customers on foot and the vastness of the airport resulted in dropping of orders, exhaustion in workers and longer waiting period for customers. By adopting electric kick scooters 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, the release said.
Going forward, the multi-brand EV platform in the second stage of this partnership 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, the release said.
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."
