Ponooc invests in DOCKR: a subscription service for electric inner city delivery vehicles DOCKR receives 3 mn EUR from Ponooc to accelerate its growth and secured additional debt to finance its assets. DOCKR provides subscriptions for cargo bikes and Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) for businesses operating in inner cities. With this addition Ponooc complements its portfolio in the fast growing market of mobility subscriptions. Rui Li, investment manager at Ponooc:“If you think about the increasing regulation and congestion in cities, e-commerce growth and direct deliveries from stores, it makes sense to invest in electric inner city mobility. In this space, DOCKR is best in class when it comes to helping their customers make deliveries hassle free, more effective and environmentally friendlier. DOCKR’s customers find a lot of value in the flexibility of a monthly subscription and DOCKR’s own developed freight box, which is fully customizable to their customer’s needs.” Nadine van der Hoorn, Managing Director at DOCKR:”We are very pleased to have Ponooc back us and facilitate DOCKR’s growth. Because of upcoming regulations regarding CO2 emissions in most cities, companies feel the pressure of looking for alternatives to their polluting vans. DOCKR allows them to operate in a more sustainable and better way but without a large investment upfront. And most importantly, DOCKR is on a mission to set the new norm for inner city delivery and service.” DOCKR is currently serving many businesses and has proven to add value for companies of all sizes in the food, service and parcel & package delivery industries. The secret lies within its subscription, which includes regular service at the customer’s location and backup vehicles when necessary, thereby maximizing uptime for its users. The company has shown significant growth in 2020 and will dedicate Ponooc’s investment and experience to further increase its momentum over the coming years.
