Karhoo and iVcardo partner to bring first and last mile travel everywhere
Karhoo today announced that it is partnering with booking and dispatch platform iVcardo in a move that expands its platform globally. The integration is said to provide Karhoo with increased infrastructure and access to transport operators beyond in ride-hailing city strongholds as part of the company’s international expansion.
iVcardo’s platform, which facilitates booking, exchange, fulfilment and billing of passenger transport services across the world, will also allow Karhoo and its partners to track journeys globally. As such, the partnership will enable Karhoo to onboard local fleets in even the most remote areas of the world onto its platform. Karhoo say that the partnership will seamlessly and safely expand its platform supply which currently stands at 1.8 million licensed taxi and private hire vehicle fleets in 1,500 cities across six continents. The added security through monitoring journeys will be of particular importance to Karhoo’s corporate and travel partners as their passengers travel into emerging and unfamiliar markets. iVcardo will initially support Karhoo by connecting the platform with transport operators including taxi, limo, minibus and coach companies across Europe. Karhoo Co-CEO Nicolas Andine said: “By partnering with iVcardo, we will now have the ability to connect with transport operators anywhere in the world instantly. “Crucially, we will also have ability to track these rides in real time no matter where they are. As Karhoo scales up globally, these factors are absolutely key to our partners.” iVcardo Founder and Chairman Simon Gare said: “We believe the dynamic Karhoo model which maximises the opportunities for drivers and vehicles in a safe and responsible fashion is where the world of mobility is heading. “We are very excited to be working alongside them as they embark upon this period of global growth.”
