Mumbai:

Diesel service startup Doorstep Humsafar India said on Thursday that it plans to expand its services to 200 more cities across the country this fiscal year in a bid to capture a higher market share in the segment.

The company also said it is considering entering the e-mobile vehicle charging station business and is negotiating with some companies.

The company offers services in around 100 cities across India. The company, in a statement, said it has developed a strategy to further penetrate the market in addition to seeking opportunities in overseas markets.

The fuel-to-home delivery model has grown rapidly across the country and escalated even faster in the post-COVID era, due to factors such as global supply chain issues and the economics of fuel trading, structural constraints of the existing distribution model, changing consumer buying behavior and technological disruptions, said Sanya Goel, co-founder of Humsafar India.

“Currently, we hold 20% market share for diesel to door service and expect to capture 30% in the current fiscal year,” she added.

Bringing diesel on wheels through mobile fuel pumps has been one of the company’s major achievements, she said, adding, “We want to reach every corner of India and revolutionize the distribution of all kinds of energy in the future”.

She also said the company’s new product, “Safar”, a 20-liter tamper-evident metal jerry can, received an overwhelming response in a short time, selling more than 30,000 containers in the previous financial year.

“We have developed a strategy to further penetrate the market and we expect to double the numbers in the current year and we are also looking forward to exporting it,” she said.

Additionally, Humsafar’s smart static diesel storage launched late last year has gained market acceptance and the company expects to do well in targeting segmented customers in the current fiscal year, she added.

“Given the energy transformation taking place across the globe, including India, Humafar plans to enter the green energy market in synergy with our core business. We are looking forward to launching the mobile fuel pumps e-Humsafar (e-HMPP) to help our customers, besides, we are planning to enter the electric vehicle charging station business and talks are ongoing with well-known companies in this field.” Said Nishit Goel, co-founder of Humsafar India.
