Karhoo and iVcardo partner for first- and last-mile travel worldwide
UK-based mobility exchange platform Karhoo is partnering with booking and dispatch platform iVcardo to expand its first- and last-mile offering across the globe.
“By partnering with iVcardo, we will now have the ability to connect with transport operators anywhere in the world instantly,” said Nicolas Andine (pictured), co-CEO of Karhoo.
Karhoo, a UK-based mobility exchange platform backed by Groupe Renault, currently offers 1.8 million licensed taxi and private-hire vehicle fleets in 1500 cities worldwide.
iVcardo’s platform enables seamless booking, exchange, fulfilment and billing of passenger transport services on a global scale. In a first phase, it will support Karhoo by connecting it Europe-wide with transport operators for taxis, limos, minibuses and coaches.
Also – and crucially – iVcardo allows journey tracking. That added security feature will allow Karhoo’s platform to on-board local fleets even in the remotest areas of the world and reassure the company’s corporate and travel partners.
The economies of scale will benefit both sides of the equation: Karhoo will increase its geographical footprint outside its traditional ride-hailing strongholds, and local fleets will see an increase in demand from Karhoo’s large customer base.
