Enercent, the Multi-Sided energy platform for the EV sector, has entered into collaboration with Big Basket on-boarding 12 warehouses of the online grocery giant.
The Enercent App is now being utilized by all EV-using Big Basket delivery agents to determine, chart, preserve, Charge and evaluate their 2 wheeler and 3-wheeler EVs. Enercent is also extending a unified dashboard for warehouse-level, regional and HQ operations managers of Big Basket.
Through this tech-innovation, site managers can duly automate their entire EV Charging operations, monitor energy usage, benchmark against total delivery distance covered and add new charging points/users tied to a warehouse/city. Through this seamless innovation, Enercent has effectively eliminated the need for manned-charging personnel at each Big Basket warehouse by delivering 100% automation.

With an ever-growing delivery cycle and the rising fuel costs, EVs are set to become the standard choice for last-mile delivery.
