Kyyti a Finnish start-up which developed the world´s first Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) solution with integrated on-demand capabilities and the largest transportation company of Vietnam Mai Linh Group start a collaboration in order to develop the digitalization of transportation logistics in to the next level. “We are pleased to start our first operation in Southeast Asia in Vietnam. I could not imagine better collaborator than Mai Linh, who is one of the leading transport operators in the region. I am confident that together we can bring even better customer experience and even more attractive prices for the Vietnamese passengers. With our Mobility-as-a-Service capabilities we can offer something that other ridesharing services can’t offer.”, says Pekka Möttö, CEO at the Kyyti Group.
Mai Linh is the largest taxi company in Vietnam. The company also operates bus routes between the major cities in Vietnam, runs rental car services and urban minibus operations. “We are delighted to start cooperation with Kyyti, the leading MaaS -company with shared taxi ride capabilities. Companies such as Grab and Uber have created fierce competition in the taxi market. In collaboration with Kyyti Group we are able to catch up with the technological development and offer ride sharing that is less expensive than single party services”, says Mr. Ho Huy, Chairman of the board at the Mai Linh Group.
The letter of intent was written in Ho Chi Minh City. The collaboration between the companies was created through VMAP-program, a joint venture by Ho Chi Minh City and Embassy of Finland Hanoi. VMAP-program improves the collaboration between Finnish and Vietnamese hi-tech companies.
