The emergence of green mobility in Africa holds tremendous promise for a brighter future. It has opened numerous opportunities for African innovators to introduce impactful inventions into the market.

Among these pioneers is Emergen8, the first-ever fully electric courier company worldwide.

What makes Emergen8 truly remarkable is its African origin, developed by Africans for Africans.

The company possesses and manages an extensive fleet of electric vehicles capable of accommodating various delivery types, ranging from express and same-day deliveries to standard shipments of any size or weight.

Whether it’s a single envelope or a pallet load, Emergen8’s fleet is equipped with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, enabling real-time satellite tracking for every delivery.

Dr. Mandla Lamba, the visionary behind Emergen8, is a trailblazer in electric vehicles and artificial intelligence in Africa. He is also the founder of Agilitee, the first electric vehicle, Greentech, and AI manufacturing company on the continent.

In a significant move towards sustainability, Emergen8 has already begun securing partnerships with major corporate clients. These forward-thinking companies have made the decision to embrace green practices, simultaneously reducing carbon emissions and cutting costs.

Operating under a franchising model with satellite branches, Emergen8 offers Africans the opportunity to own and operate their own satellite branches.
This business model aims to facilitate a transformative shift that Africa has been eagerly anticipating. Given Dr. Lamba’s exceptional track record, there is no doubt that Emergen8 is destined for resounding success.

By revolutionizing the courier industry with its fully electric fleet and advanced tracking technology, Emergen8 is poised to redefine the delivery experience while contributing to a sustainable future for Africa and the world.
