Join the movement, that is changing lives, one electric vehicle at a time
Driving real change for real people
Recognising the relentless struggles faced by fleet owners and last-mile delivery drivers alike, we introduce the power of electric vehicles as a safe and sustainable solution
Fueling fleet success
In an unpredictable, unregulated and volatile industry, fleet owners across South-Africa face continual pressures to optimise routes, maintain vehicles and ensure the safety of drivers, vehicles and cargo alike for the purpose of securing a positive return on investment.
Without careful management, increased fuel and maintenance costs, amounting traffic fines, costs associated with roadside assistance, breakdowns and accidents can quickly eat away predicted profits.
With our industry expertise, comprehensive solutions, and unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service, ScootHero provides a holistic solution to alleviate the burdens that come with a petrol fleet.
Driving toward a brighter future
Delivery drivers, like fleet owners, navigate daily struggles to make ends meet. Fighting against the soaring costs of fuel, vehicle rentals, fuel, data and related living costs.
Drivers work long hours and often substitute acceptable vehicle maintenance for sustenance, creating an unsafe and unsustainable work environment.
At our core, we are a true South African company with a genuine desire for positive change. With the introduction of reliable electric-vehicle solutions, we aim to empower last-mile delivery drivers to overcome daily obstacles and shape a brighter future.
Delivery driver accident statistics
Hein Jonker of the Motorcycle Safety Institute said accidents involving food delivery drivers rose 30% nationwide to 109 in May and June 2020 compared to 84 during those months in 2019

The evolution of ScootHero
With a deep understanding of the struggles faced by last-mile delivery drivers, and first hand experience of the fleet managers’ role, we strive to continually build and improve the last-mile delivery industry and streamline related services
Back to the drawing board
Following extensive research we came to a realisation: petrol bikes are costly to maintain and poses numerous challenges for both the driver and fleet owner.
An alternative was needed.
Time to evolve
Electric vehicles was the clear solution for the last-mile delivery industry. During our exploration we also embraced the potential of solar power and improved battery swapping technology.
Green means go
A transformative shift occurred as we committed ourselves to providing sustainable and cost-effective vehicle solutions.
Our focus on reducing carbon emissions aligned with our dedication to empowering delivery drivers and assisting fleet owners.
Our last-mile delivery market research starts with the purchase of 5 delivery scooters.
Ready, set, go
ScootHero is founded with the purpose of providing South Africans and non-South Africans with a mechanism to purchase a food delivery bike.
The ScootHero driver platform is created
The lack of resources compelled drivers to fix their own bikes on street corners. Seeing the visible deterioration of vehicles and the tragic loss of six delivery driver lives within the same month highlighted the urgent need for change and support.
And so a platform designed to support and empower drivers was created.
Innovate and improve
Our team worked tirelessly to develop innovative solutions tailored specifically for delivery drivers, focusing on affordable rentals, fuel savings, data optimisation, and vehicle maintenance support.
Learn and grow
With 80 bikes and 430 drivers on our platform we were able to successfully test the first release of our software.
