    JUMIA partners with BILITI Electric to include E-Vans in delivery fleet

    Pan-African e-commerce giant, JUMIA has partnered with California-based EV solutions provider BILITI Electric, to add e-vans to its delivery fleet in Kenya. The two companies have successfully completed the pilot project and are set to scale the fleet within Kenya in the first phase and eventually across Africa. This partnership is an important step toward Africa’s progress in the e-mobility industry to achieve its environmental sustainability goals.

    We are committed to building a supply chain that will minimize the environmental impact of our operations. Introducing these EVs to our last-mile delivery fleet of 3000+ vans is an integral milestone in our journey towards realizing our ESG objectives.” said Juan Seco, CEO of JUMIA Kenya.

    BILITI Electric’s Taskman variant is designed for commercial last-mile deliveries – it offers a range of 100 kms per charge, payload of 500 kg and a top speed of 50 kmph. BILITI’s SmartSwapp technology enables the rider to simply swap the vehicle battery and get recharged in less than a minute. The vehicle has seen a collective mileage of 22Mn miles and delivered 24 million shipments across the globe.

    “Last mile delivery costs account for 53% of the total cost of shipping. EVs help save on major costs compared to any internal combustion engine vehicle. We are confident of enabling JUMIA with much faster, cheaper and more convenient last-mile deliveries.” said Rahul Gayam, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of BILITI Electric.

    Taskman is currently being used by Amazon, IKEA, Flipkart (Walmart), Wasoko (Sokowatch), BigBasket (Tata), Zomato, JioMart (Reliance) among others, and has a presence in 15+ countries, including Japan, USA, UK, France, Portugal, Germany, Uganda, Kenya, Dubai and India
