We have built a smart platform that is gaining popularity among B2B kirana and other hyperlocal delivery companies as well as delivery executives who want to go electric with our electric shared mobility platform. The best part is that there is a lot of focus on driving the right unit economics in the business and achieving positive contribution margin even when the scale grows 10 times.
