An in house survey conducted by the companies found that electric autos could cover only two-thirds of the distance covered by those powered by fossil fuels. This leads to a loss of revenue for the drivers of the electric autos which is caused by a lack of charging options available on the go. The new partnership between Delhi-based Omega Seiki and Charzer aims to address this paint point by setting up over twenty thousand charging stations across the country.

Commenting on the partnership, Dheeraj Reddy, COO and Co-Founder, Charzer stated, "For any logistics company, finding and managing ‘Park and Charge' EV hubs is capital intensive and requires extensive use of labour and workforce. Setting up these EV charging hubs is a major deviation from the core business of a logistics company. Besides this, drivers and companies lose a lot of valuable time in travelling to and fro to the hubs. This is where we come in. With Charzer, fleet owners can save up to 46% of their expenses and scale their fleet 10 times faster. Drivers can save up to 55 hours of redundant travel per month and earn 40% more income due to increased fleet uptime."

Uday Narang, Founder and Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility said "At Omega Seiki Mobility, we are dedicated to creating an ecosystem that reduces carbon footprint by shifting to sustainable last-mile logistics. We have a target of introducing 30,000+ EV cargo three wheels in the next two years. In order to achieve this goal, we are also working towards building a robust charging infrastructure that allows our fleet drivers to easily access charging stations at any given point during the day. As a first step towards this, we have partnered with Charzer to build an extensive network of charging stations across the country. We are looking forward to working with the team for setting up the required infrastructure and removing any hurdles in the way of faster adoption of EVs.''
