A consortium made up of Gemserv, Briggs Equipment, Dodona Analytics, Geotab and Liberty Charge have joined forces to make the transition to electric fleets simpler and easier.
The companies’ Street Fleet initiative is a new end-to-end fleet transition offering, using data analytics to optimise the shift to electric fleet vehicles with on-street charging infrastructure, located to meet each client’s needs.
Using world leading telematics and bespoke advice, Street Fleet will accelerate fleet electrification by helping businesses understand which vehicles can electrify most easily, how they can be purchased/leased and where charging infrastructure needs to be installed to optimise vehicle utilisation.
Street Fleet’s targeted public and semi-public charging infrastructure will create a high utilisation charging network that is both commercially viable and available to all. Street Fleet clients will have priority charging at locations that have been specifically selected to support their vehicle journeys.
Alex Goody, CEO, Gemserv explained: “We are excited to bring this offering to market with the Street Fleet group, helping accelerate the transition to electric fleets whilst creating a public charging network that is both accessible to all and commercially viable. Street Fleet gives fleet owners the confidence and evidence base to move to zero emissions vehicles.”
Following its successful pilot with the Street Fleet initiative, Adam Alderson, Group Strategic Director, Briggs Equipment highlighted: “One of the biggest challenges every business will face over the next 5 years is the transition from ICE vehicles to electric vehicles. This is by no means a simple journey with challenges around infrastructure availability, vehicle range and required changes in working practices. Street Fleet helped us immensely in mapping out this journey identifying vehicles that could be transitioned in the short term and help influence the shape of the future charging network such that it reflects the needs of our Fleet.”
Perran Moon, Chief Marketing Officer, Liberty Charge emphasised: “Businesses are urgently looking to electrify their fleets ahead of the 2030 UK Government ban on the sale on new electric vehicles, and the smooth transition to electrification will only happen where there is convenient and reliable EV charging infrastructure in place. The experience within the Street Fleet Consortium and this new data-led electrification offering puts it in an excellent position to help deliver that smooth transition.”
