Uber Freight, Greenlane announced electric truck charging station collaboration

The organizations say they can enhance the ability to build public charging stations where they are most needed.

Uber Freight and Greenlane recently announced a collaboration aiming to accelerate the development and installation of public charging infrastructure for heavy-duty battery electric vehicles (HD BEVs). Greenlane is a joint venture between Daimler Truck North America, NextEra Energy Resources, LLC and BlackRock.

The organizations described their collaboration as follows: “Greenlane will leverage insights from Uber Freight’s logistics network, representing $18 billion in active Freight Under Management, for critical information regarding the future development and installation of public charging stations on highways in North America. Uber Freight’s vast network data will augment Greenlane’s own data analysis to determine corridors that are prime candidates for early HD BEV deployment, charging infrastructure needs, and the addressability of shipping lanes for electrification.”

The two organizations say they will also explore leveraging Uber Freight’s marketplace technology to potentially create in-application charging appointment scheduling, surface Greenlane charging stations, fuel card discounts, and more directly to carriers.

By combining Uber Freight’s network insights with Greenlane’s goal to build a nationwide charging network for commercial vehicles, the organizations say they can enhance the ability to build public charging stations where they are most needed, which means fleets can confidently begin their transition towards zero emissions.

“I am delighted that we will be working with Uber Freight to accelerate BEV adoption and help reduce the carbon footprint of freight distribution,” said Patrick Macdonald-King, CEO of Greenlane. “Our national network of EV charging and hydrogen fueling stations together with our Uber Freight collaboration will make the electrification transition easier for shippers. Together, we will pave the way for a greener and more efficient future in logistics.”

“Electric trucks present a tremendous opportunity to help decarbonize supply chains and significantly reduce global emissions,” said Lior Ron, CEO of Uber Freight. “We are thrilled to work with Greenlane on this initiative, as this collaboration exemplifies our commitment to reducing the impact of logistics on the environment and further establishes Uber Freight as a leading logistics network choice for customers looking to adopt and deploy electric trucks.”

Daimler Truck and Linde Engineering recently announced subcooled liquid hydrogen (sLH2), a jointly developed refueling technology. According to the companies, sLH2 allows for higher storage density, greater range, faster refueling, lower costs and superior energy efficiency over gaseous hydrogen.

Daimler and Linde say the new sLH2 pump slightly increases the pressure of the liquid hydrogen, allowing a 40-ton heavy-duty truck to fill up with 175 lbs. of liquid hydrogen in about ten to fifteen minutes, supplying a range of more than 630 miles. At the same time, the companies claim the required investment for sLH2 hydrogen refueling stations are two to three times lower, and operational costs are five to six times lower.
