Electrada, Daimler Truck Financial Services partner to deliver EV charging-as-a-service

The companies plan to offer the Charging-as-a-Service solution for BEVs to select customers in the USA by the first half of 2024.

Electrada and Daimler Truck Financial Services have begun a official partnership to use Electrada’s 360 Charging-as-a-Service solution with Daimler’s battery electric vehicles. The companies describe the partnership as providing the necessary infrastructure to power medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicle fleets. The solution will first be provided to projects with selected customers in the USA in the first half of 2024.

Electrada describes its 360 Charging-as-a-Service (CaaS) as an end-to-end, technology-agnostic approach that allows fleets to electrify in a way that is customized to their specific use cases. It covers a fleet’s EV charging infrastructure buildout, implementation, operation and maintenance costs.
