In a bid to facilitate its customers to get an easy access to mobile and fixed electric vehicle charging hardware, Volvo Trucks North America has added Gilbarco Veeder-Root to its vendor base.
This addition comes as an expansion of Volvo Direct Shipping Program (VDSP) which will enable the customers to buy EV charging hardware solutions straight from the Volvo Truck dealers.
The Trucking industry in North America has appreciated the move of Volvo Trucks North America terming it as the company’s commitment towards innovation as well as towards sustainability.
In addition to offering complete electromobility solutions, the program will help the customers in efficient deployment of Volvo VNR Electric trucks.
Presently, there are five models of EV chargers under VDSP but the options will increase as the demand increases.
It is pertinent to mention that Volvo Trucks North America had commenced VDSP in September 2022. Heliox was the first vendor which supplies 50kW Mobile DC Fast Charger (Single Port CCS-1) and 180kW Flex DC Fast Charger (Up to 3 Dispensers with CCS-1).
On the other hand, Gilbarco Veeder-Root will supply Kempower 50kW Mobile DC Fast Charger (Single Port CCS-1), ABB Terra 124 120kW DC Fast Charger (Dual Ports CCS-1) and ABB Terra 184 180kW DC Fast Charger (Dual Ports CCS-1).
