Zoomo and SG Fleet to enable fleets to expand and electrify
Zoomo, the light electric last-mile delivery vehicle specialist, and SG Fleet, Australian provider of integrated mobility solutions have announced a partnership to put more EVs in commercial fleets. The partnership will enable Zoomo to electrify fleets via SG Fleet’s comprehensive network of customers in new segments, such as parcel delivery and inner-city logistics
Zoomo’s recent USD $20 million addition to its Series B funding round saw SG Fleet join as a new strategic investor. Both Zoomo and SG Fleet share a similar vision of providing efficient and sustainable vehicles to help individuals and businesses reduce the impact of their emissions on the environment.
The partnership will see a number of beneficial initiatives implemented across Australia and the United Kingdom.
Expanded Customer Network and Offering
The partnership with Zoomo and SG Fleet will enable fleets to expand and electrify in the postal delivery segment.
Specifically, Zoomo and SG Fleet are partnering on a go-to-market strategy that will see Zoomo e-bikes offered to SG Fleet’s existing customer base to further broaden its range of electric solutions. This is particularly appealing to customers seeking more sustainable, commercially viable solutions for increasingly critical last-mile deliveries.
Through the partnership, SG Fleet will enable Zoomo to offer its fleet of e-bikes via novated leasing or salary packaging schemes. These financial arrangements deduct lease payments for a vehicle from pre-tax salaries to provide a significant tax benefit to employees of participating companies.
Robbie Blau, CEO, SG Fleet, said: “This is an important investment for SG Fleet. We’re excited to work collaboratively with Zoomo in this arena that will allow us to deliver light electric vehicles as a viable, sustainable mobility alternative to enhance our customers’ fleets.”
Mina Nada, Co-Founder and CEO, Zoomo, said: “We are proud to partner with a leading Australian company like SG Fleet to help consumers and enterprises reduce the environmental impact of their transport.
“Light electric vehicles are the heart of our business and offer transformative growth. Our expertise in this space builds a strong platform for SG Fleet’s customer offering. We see immense potential in offering SG Fleet’s customers access to cleaner, more commercially viable solutions for last-mile delivery.”
Lincoln De Kalb, Group Product Development Manager, Future Mobility, SG Fleet, said: “Light electric vehicles are another tool companies can use on their path to reducing their transport carbon emissions. It doesn’t always make sense to use a 1.5t vehicle for a particular journey if other cheaper and less carbon-intensive alternatives are available, such as e-bikes.”
