Ryder System, Inc, a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, In-Charge Energy, Inc., a privately-held energy solutions company based in California, and ABB, a global technology leader in electrification, jointly announced a first-of-its-kind partnership to provide nationwide turnkey energy and electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure as a service to Ryder customers.
Ryder, ABB, and In-Charge intend to make fleet electrification a simple, reliable, and streamlined process for Ryder’s customers that are looking to optimize sustainable and cost-effective solutions within their transportation network. This service will allow Ryder customers safely and predictably to expand their EV footprint, giving them access to the infrastructure necessary to run these operations effectively.
Through this agreement, In-Charge will assist Ryder customers who are seeking to electrify their fleet with assessments of power capabilities and needs to implement charging infrastructure and provide guidance around entry into the EV market.
ABB manufactures vehicle charging systems from 20 to 600kW serving public, transit and scaled fleet enterprises. Over the last decade, ABB has deployed more than 12,000 connected DC fast and high power chargers in 76 countries.
Supporting an electrification program with seasoned fleet leaders like Ryder and In-Charge is a great fit for ABB’s experience deploying high power charging and safe grid interconnection. Well-planned EV fleet programs offer tremendous upside for both economic and environmental progress.—Bob Stojanovic, Director of EV Infrastructure for ABB in North America
