EV infrastructure: From installation to paying for it

EV infrastructure: From installation to paying for it

You can overcome the costs and challenges with the right partners.

The transition to battery electric trucks doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a multifaceted challenge, particularly when it comes to developing and installing the necessary infrastructure. Collaboration is the cornerstone of a successful EV infrastructure development and installation—coordinating the efforts of stakeholders such as truck manufacturers, utility companies, charging equipment manufacturers, service providers, and most importantly your fleet’s needs. Not only that, but the financial side offers opportunities and challenges that are specific to battery electric vehicles.

Fleets need a program that can help simplify the process that isn’t any more challenging than current fleet operations—it’s just different.

Volvo Turnkey Solutions, for example, manages project cycles, specifications, and ensures alignment among all parties involved. Insights from industry experts Chris Robak, Vice President of Sales and Customer Experience at Volvo Financial Services, and Derek Wilson, Infrastructure and Charging Manager at Volvo Trucks North America, provide a roadmap for truck equipment managers navigating this shift. Watch Robak and Wilson discuss the nitty gritty of charging infrastructure development and dive into topics often glossed over—from financial questions to how stakeholder relationships work in the real world—in the video above.

Communication is so important when it comes to truck service. Whether your fleet works with an independent shop or dealer or has its own shop, the goal when a truck needs a repair is the same for all parties involved: a quick, efficient repair done right. For you, time your truck spends in the shop bay is time it could be running its route; for the shop, time your truck spends in the bay is time another truck could be in that bay, so it benefits everyone to move quickly.
