Signs MoUs with ‘Americana’ and ‘Motherson’
The UAE company, ‘Barq EV’ specialized in the field of smart mobility and logistics solutions, recently announced the official launch to start its business in the UAE.
The startup is scheduled to provide its customers with an integrated package of products and services that contribute to enhancing the last-mile delivery experience. This initiative comes in line with the UAE’s efforts to support the growth of the logistics, transport, and e-commerce sectors in the UAE.
During the ceremony that was organized at the Emirates Palace Hotel in the capital, Abu Dhabi, the company indicated that it aims to address the delivery challenges of several industries such as e-commerce, logistics, and transportation of medical supplies through its environmentally friendly electric vehicles.
Proven track record
Ahmed Suhail Faris Al Mazroui, the company’s co-founder, noted that the UAE has a proven track record, unmatched in the Middle East, in incubating innovative ideas and projects. This comes as a result of the government’s support for startups and emerging companies by providing the ideal business environment and technology incubators, as well providing the appropriate infrastructure to operate.
“The launch of Barq represents an important step for our projects within the field of environmentally friendly electric vehicles. We at Barq are proud to harness our expertise and efforts to contribute to supporting the transformation within the transport sector in the country,” commented Abdullah Abu Sheikh, Co-founder and CEO of the company.
Abu Sheikh said that he looks forward to continuing to work side by side with their partners to make Abu Dhabi the first city in the Middle East and North Africa region that adopts this pioneering system and deploys the most important modern technologies, promoting the sustainable, environmentally friendly transport sector, and positions the Emirate as a world leader in this field.
Mazen Al-Jubeir, the company’s third co-founder, explained that the company is currently launching 3 different environmentally-friendly electric vehicles that were designed and manufactured with materials that are compatible to the conditions of the Middle East and North Africa.
Among the products is the ‘Rena Max’, an electric moped, which has been designed in accordance with international best practices and is equipped with safety and security systems that are in line with the company’s mission to preserve the health and safety of the rider.
Memoranda of Understanding
During the ceremony, Barq signed two MoUs, the first with the leading restaurant and food group ‘Americana’ and the second with specialized automobile equipment global manufacturer ‘Motherson.’ Under the first agreement, Barq provide a number of its vehicles to be used to transport and provide logistical services to Americana, while the company will proceed, based on the second agreement with Motherson, to build and deliver its products.
