Kortrijk, 14 September 2017 – Since September 1st, service provider delaware is offering the Kowo service to its employees at all delaware locations. Kowo allows them to automate carpooling via a mobile app. By providing this service, delaware aims to address an important issue in the everyday life of its employees: commuting between home and work.

The fact delaware was quickly convinced of the benefits of Kowo can be easily explained, since its mission is to reduce its ecological footprint, by for example offering employees an alternative to the (corporate) car. This alternative is not only more ecological, but also more economical. By allowing its employees to carpool in a simple and fully automated way, delaware reduces significantly the number of cars used between the different offices or client sites. At the same time, Kowo users still enjoy the same level of comfort. 

Thanks to a strong partnership with AXA, the level of carpoolers’ flexibility and independence remains untouched: in case of cancellation or issue, a taxi takes over to get the user to its destination for free. Thanks to AXA, Kowo subscribers can also call upon road or legal assistance when required.  

“delaware has set out a clear strategy on mobility, based on three pillars: lowering the number of trips, reducing our ecological footprint and increasing efficiency by offering a wider choice of transport modes”, explains Pieter Sanders, Fleet Manager at delaware. “With the introduction of Kowo, the user-friendly carpool app, we take another step towards a more sustainable way of going from A to B and, as a company, we contribute to solve the mobility issues our society is facing.”

Kowo, key player in mobility

Kowo was launched in the market in May 2017 in the presence of Ministers of Mobility Pascal Smet and François Bellot. During the Week of Mobility, Kowo will be launched in five large firms in Belgium – of which the names will be revealed soon. Kowo has been designed by the startup studio Barefoot and is already showing a nice growth. The startup is also working on different projects, all linked to the carpooling and corporate mobility theme.
