Zeem to bring electric truck depot to Port Newark, NJ

The site is expected to offer overnight parking and charging for 200 trucks, with 300 additional charging spots open during the day.

Zeem Solutions announced a large-scale electric truck depot development near Port Newark, New Jersey. Phase I of its construction operations are planned for Q4 of 2025.

Zeem says the site will serve regional fleet operators with electric trucks, overnight parking and charging for 200 trucks, and additional charging for up to 300 electric trucks during the day.

Zeem said it will assist customers at its Newark site in selecting and financing Class 8 electric truck models, enabling drayage operators to access zero-emission vehicles, charging infrastructure, and related services without the substantial upfront capital investment typically needed.

“By bringing the electric charging depot to Port Newark, Zeem is energizing New Jersey’s commitment to pioneering responsible, clean energy solutions,” said Governor Phil Murphy in a statement. “Switching to zero-emission vehicles in one of the nation’s busiest freight corridors reinforces New Jersey’s priority to reduce emissions in overburdened communities and showcases how environmentally-conscious innovation goes hand in hand with economic growth.”

With a 30-megawatt (MW) interconnect to PSEG, 84 ports of DC fast charging, and other amenities, the site is ideally located near Newark Airport, New York and New Jersey’s marine terminals, warehousing and distribution facilities, transportation companies, and the northern entrance to Port Newark.
