Blowhorn Partners With Denso And Honda For Sustainable Deliveries Across India


Blowhorn, a Bengaluru-based platform for same-day delivery, has partnered with Japanese auto giants Denso and Honda in order to create a sustainable, environmentally-friendly solution for India’s perishable goods delivery. The association will focus on the safe and secure delivery and collection of food, groceries, and pharmaceuticals within the country.

According to the start-up, it was selected as the logistic partner due to its extensive network of last-mile services within the city. Blowhorn, who is currently running the pilot program at Bengaluru, will continue to assess the efficiency of the project, including fuel cost, vehicle maintenance, and the life of products delivered, in order to accelerate the transition to a 100% cleaner fleet by 2025.

Blowhorn claims it has worked with Denso before to test its cold storage infrastructure for commercial vehicles. The two companies have teamed up again to create a permanent solution for the transportation of perishable goods. This project is designed to promote sustainable, eco-friendly delivery methods, which do not rely upon unsustainable solutions such as dry ice or thermal insulation bags.

Honda, for its part, will supply its electric bikes with a swapping system. Zero-emission two-wheelers have battery swapping technology that allows riders to quickly replace a dead battery with a new one at stations such as petrol stations or metro stations. This innovative approach is more likely to encourage EV adoption because it doesn’t require users to change their behavior or purchase batteries.

Mithun Srivatsa is Co-founder and CEO of Blowhorn. He stated, “We are thrilled to partner with Honda and Denso to kickstart the next revolution for swappable electric cars and cold chains to accelerate efficient and safe same-day EV deliveries. We at Blowhorn are committed to driving clean fuel mobility through partnerships. We are currently working towards converting all of our fleets to clean fuels by 2025.”
