Together Log9 and Indeanta hope to push to transform the delivery and logistics ecosystem of the nation towards a more responsible and sustainable model.”
With this collaboration, Indeanta Ventures under the aegis of Log9’s Responsible Delivery Movement are attempting to accelerate e-mobility adoption for last-mile deliveries and thereby bring down transportation and logistics-related emissions intensity in India by up to 33% by 2030, the release stated.
