Uber Eats partners with Zoomo on new E-moped initiative

Electric fleet solution provider Zoomo has partnered with online food delivery company Uber Eats to drive greater accessibility of light electric vehicles for couriers in London. The new partnership will see high-performance E-mopeds added to Zoomo’s product portfolio with a discount offered for their monthly and weekly rental. To help tackle the emissions generated by food delivery, couriers who use Uber Eats will receive a discount on the rental cost of high-quality E-mopeds in the initial month of sign-up, making the E-mopeds accessible at just £149 (including insurance) via Zoomo. The announcement will contribute to Uber Eats’ goal of making 100 percent of food delivery trips emission-free worldwide by 2040, with a 2030 target for major European cities. The partnership also supports Zoomo's mission of transitioning urban miles to light electric vehicles while enhancing courier access to efficient and affordable transportation. 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.”
