AVIS partners with One Moto, doubles down on electric vehicle fleet management
Avis UAE, offering fleet leasing solutions, has partnered with One Moto Technologies as their strategic e-bike vehicle provider as the it commits to meeting the demand of any customer wanting a fleet of electric delivery vehicle. Fleet managers, 3PL, F&B operators, and aggregators can now lease an electric delivery fleet through Avis. A sustainable delivery eco-system in the UAE is a significant step toward a greener future.
Over the past 12 months, many delivery aggregators and last mile logistics operators have had a Capex versus Opex consideration when many want to adapt to their green agendas, yet cost was always the over-arching sentiment. The partnership between One Moto and Avis UAE offers a solution to satisfy any previous objections and offering an affordable, data-driven electric fleet.
One Moto expects demand for electric delivery vehicles to exceed 25,000 vehicles within the next 12 months.
Adam Ridgway, CEO, ONE MOTO Technologies said, “We want to electrify all last-mile vehicles in the UAE by 2024. Following the UAE government’s agenda and commitments we will ensure the world realises, the UAE take the necessary action to bring change (before COP28).”
Both companies will be working to confirm contracts for the 44,500 vehicles in discussion throughout the GCC. Early movers will always have the advantage, but the ‘decision’ to make the commitment first isn’t always forthcoming.
Ridgway added, “Currently the UAE isn’t known for manufacturing and export, and amidst the recent announcement of Operation $300bn and the drive to create international export through manufacturing and production, with like-minded public and private sector collaborations, we’ll be able to make it happen.”
Dominic Hagerty, Avis UAE General Manager, said, “We recognized the need from our customers and we acted on it. We see e-mobilization as an important path in our immediate and future strategy and we are happy to be able to finally begin the journey.”
AVIS is doubling down on its EV and green agenda and looking to increase their sustainable vehicle offering and support the government’s COP28 campaign.
