Glovis specializes in air, ocean, and ground freight logistics, and plans to use ELMS commercial vehicles to support its industrial operations. The Urban Delivery will be used for materials movement and shuttling personnel on-campus.
Glovis operates at 18 ports across the U.S. and manages ocean transportation for over 800,000 twenty-foot cargo containers, three million cars, trucks, buses, locomotives, heavy machines, and 90 million tons of bulk cargo.
Glovis will also evaluate various configurations of the Urban Utility for operations like unloading cargo ships, transporting personnel, and transporting heavy materials at its ports. The Urban Utility is a Class 3 medium-duty commercial electric vehicle that has a cab-over chassis design, allowing it to be highly configurable. It can be outfitted with a dry box, flat bed, stake bed, and other customizable cargo options depending on customer needs.
ELMS sees the municipal sector, which includes ports, city public works, local governments, and national parks, as a major vertical for the Urban Delivery and Urban Utility.
“Glovis’s large port and facilities presence in the U.S. requires an efficient commercial fleet with zero downtime,” said Ron Feldeisen, chief revenue officer, ELMS.
