Addis Abeba – As part of its commitment to technological advancement and strategic innovation, Ethiopost, Ethiopia’s state-owned postal services delivery announced its exclusive partnership with Dodai Manufacturing PLC (“Dodai”), a recently incorporated organization launched in Addis Abeba on 01 August this year with a mission to make e-mobility accessible to everyone in Africa through innovative products.
According to a statement sent to Addis Standard, through this collaboration, Ethiopost will continue its services of “Post for everyone,” further emphasizing its intent to evolve into a technology-driven service provider and setting a new standard in sustainable delivery solutions.
Dodai’s e-motorbikes, which stand central to this partnership, are powered by a 3.6kWh capacity lithium battery, delivering a remarkable 120-150 km range on a single charge. With a battery lifespan three times longer than traditional lead-acid batteries, Dodai’s advanced features play a crucial role in Ethiopost’s decision for this collaboration.
