Sustainable delivery company GoFor and automotive holding company Odin Automotive, announced in a statement a partnership to deploy Odin's electric delivery vehicle ecosystem in the U.S. and Canada. The partnership gives GoFor a turnkey solution for electric deliveries and secures access to production capacity for Odin's electric light commercial vehicles (eLCVs), which have been in scale production in Germany for about seven years. The collaboration with Odin will make GoFor one of the first eFleet-as-a-service providers in North America, according to the statement.
"This partnership brings together two pioneers in sustainable last mile delivery who both understand that the world can't continue down the same path, rushing to deliver ever faster, no matter the consequence to communities or the environment,'' said GoFor CEO Ian Gardner, in the statement. "At GoFor, our success will not only be measured in deliveries and profit but also in the stewardship of our communities, with a responsibility to ensure their prosperity and sustained health. This union is key to living up to our Renewable Delivery commitment to deliver better through carbon-negative solutions and fast, reliable, low cost delivery."
"GoFor's strong commitment to low cost delivery and moving toward a future with zero emissions make them an ideal fit for Odin's electric solution suite," added Stefan Krause, CEO and chairman of Odin Automotive. "With over 100 million kilometers of work already on the road, our EVs are known for their reliability, ergonomics and high uptime, creating a win-win for drivers and fleet operators. We also have an unmatched first mover advantage over the rest of the sector—our vehicles are fully proven, and ready to deploy at scale, today. Our advantage gives GoFor everything they need to execute on their Renewable Delivery initiative as early as Q2 this year."
