    Mahindra Logistics Limited (MLL), one of India's largest third-party logistics solution providers, has announced that its enterprise mobility business, Alyte, will provide emergency cab services for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The service will be provided free of cost, and its operations have begun in Hyderabad.

    Now, Alyte is offering this free emergency cab service in Mumbai as well, in collaboration with the Mumbai Police Commissionerate.

    Alyte will provide these services through a dedicated fleet, which includes electric vehicles. These services are focused on single mothers, differently-abled individuals and senior citizens, among others, who are unable to secure transport for essential services like shopping for essentials and medication, visits to banks, post offices and periodic medical visits. The services will also be available to doctors, nurses and others involved in providing essential services. The company says interested groups can contact Mahindra Logistics’ dedicated helpline to access the same.

    The service was started today in Hyderabad and will operate 24x7 in close collaboration with Rachakonda Commissionaire, Hyderabad, within the limits of Cyberabad, Hyderabad, Sangareddy and Rachakonda.

    Rampraveen Swaminathan, MD and CEO, Mahindra Logistics, said, "These are difficult and unprecedented times for our society. It requires a combined effort from all the stakeholders to combat the crisis. The government has been taking commendable actions to fight this and with the support from the Hyderabad police, we will continue to support these efforts in all the possible manner. During this period, we have found that people are struggling with transport during emergency requirements. This service will help provide a solution with cars which meet all our standards of hygiene, sanitization and safety. We will soon be extending this to other cities. We encourage members of the community to maintain strict social distancing and venture out only when absolutely required."
