Holman, a global automotive services organization, and Electrada, a developer, owner, and operator of vehicle electrification infrastructure, announced a partnership designed to help North American fleet operators integrate electric vehicles (EVs) into their fleet mix. The partnership offers fleet operators a turnkey, capitalized (vehicle and charging infrastructure) fleet management, and electrification solution that allows organizations to simplify their transition to electric vehicles.
Through this partnership, Holman and ARI, the organization’s fleet leasing and management division, will provide fleet management services, including vehicle supply chain logistics, for electric vehicles and Electrada will streamline the installation of the charging infrastructure.
“Electric vehicles and the future of e-mobility remain top strategic priorities for Holman and ARI, and this partnership with Electrada is an exciting opportunity to strengthen our competencies in this rapidly evolving and increasingly impactful segment of the industry,” said Emily Graham, Holman’s director of sustainability. “EVs continue to generate a significant amount of interest as organizations look to integrate these vehicles into their fleet mix as part of their company’s overall sustainability strategy. As we explore potential electrification projects with our customers, this partnership with Electrada virtually eliminates two of the biggest roadblocks companies typically face when integrating EVs into their fleet; infrastructure development and significant capital expenditures.”
“Fleet electrification merges two of the most complex and risk-laden sectors: mission critical transportation and electric power," added Kevin Kushman, CEO of Electrada. "Unlocking the tremendous potential to electrify fleets requires the application of proven expertise with innovative solutions and the commitment to invest in these solutions. We’re honored to launch this collaboration with Holman, to whom fleet owners have entrusted the lifeblood of their commercial operations, to make this journey simple, secure and ROI-based.”
