GreenTech startup from Berlin, LEVA-EU member Swobbee, puts out feelers in the direction of Southeastern Europe for the first time. Its cooperation with a local vehicle service provider is beginning to bear fruit.
In the future, Swobbee will work with the Greek fleet service provider Evedima to charge and operate micromobility vehicles more sustainably in various cities in Greece. The first Swobbee station has already been set up, with more to follow in the coming weeks.
Evedima specializes in providing services and infrastructure for urban mobility and transport services. In Greece, the company is responsible, among other things, for operating the Finnish e-kick scooter sharing company, Hopp.
For part of the first collaboration project by Evedima and Swobbee, a battery changing station was set up in Vouliagmeni near Athens, where exchangeable batteries for Hopp’s electric scooters can be charged and changed quickly and easily. This saves the company from complex loading logistics with warehouses on the outskirts of the region, improving cost efficiency and environmental balance of sharing vehicles.
“We are very pleased to be strengthening sustainable mobility in Greek cities together with such a strong partner as Evedima. This is Swobbee’s first project in South East Europe and we hope to expand our presence in the region in the future,” said Thomas Duscha, CEO and co-founder of Swobbee.
More Swobbee stations are to be set up in the coming weeks, including the Greek capital of Athens.
