Webinar Description:

With the holidays just around the corner, decorations aren’t the only thing cities will be seeing more of as people prepare to spread goodwill and cheer. Our nation’s urban centers will also face an increase in congestion, noise and emissions as trucks take to the streets to deliver goods purchased online direct to people’s doorsteps. As fleet operators prepare to meet the ever-growing demand of e-commerce home delivery services, it’s vital for cities and fleets to work together to ensure the most efficient and cleanest available technologies are being deployed. Given the stop-and-go and the return-to-base nature of delivery vehicles, battery-electric trucks can provide an ideal solution to achieve zero-emission operations and eliminate noise pollution.

Watch this recorded webinar to gain insight into:

  • The benefits, challenges, costs, and risks of battery-electric truck deployment
  • How cities can effectively plan to support the electrification of last-mile delivery
  • Key steps EVSE providers are taking to establish a robust network of urban chargers
