ChargePoint, Gatik to develop an electric ecosystem for autonomous electric medium-duty trucks

ChargePoint and Gatik have announced a strategic partnership to develop an electric ecosystem for autonomous vehicles designed to maximize sustainability, operational efficiency and economics for ChargePoint and Gatik’s customers across North America. Through the partnership, infrastructure and integrated services will play a significant role in helping to decarbonize the B2B short-haul logistics sector and will offer a simple and seamless solution to help Gatik and ChargePoint’s customers meet their corporate sustainability goals.

Customers transporting goods in Gatik’s autonomous electric fleet will have access to ChargePoint’s expertise in site design, interoperability validation, and lower investment costs. Gatik will also have access to a nationwide charging network and fleet-specific software that provides telematics intelligence configurable to each customer’s operations, as well as modular charging hardware to minimize upfront costs by reducing required electrical capacity. This strategic electric ecosystem collaboration for the middle mile will play a key role in the electrified logistics sector.

Powered by ChargePoint’s charging technology, Gatik launched its first autonomous electric box trucks with Walmart in 2021, a groundbreaking solution offering hyper-efficient goods movement, significant emissions reductions and impactful savings on fuel and powertrain maintenance costs. As the retail, E-commerce and logistics sectors look to decrease their carbon footprints, demand for Gatik’s product offering among national retail and E-Commerce giants has soared, leading to rapid expansion of ChargePoint’s infrastructure at Gatik’s vehicle depots and customer locations across existing and emerging markets.

Gatik’s partnership with ChargePoint ensures customers have access to Gatik’s Class 3-6 autonomous electric fleet and ChargePoint’s charging infrastructure and integrated services to support a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable logistics sector, the companies noted.
