In an effort to support the decarbonisation goals of commercial fleets, Australian companies Ampol and SEA Electric will join forces to build a network of charging stations.

The companies are keen on developing “flexible, sustainable and seamless charging options” that will help drive the uptake of zero-emissions commercial electric vehicles.

Integrated Solutions for Fleets

Through the partnership, integrated charging solutions will be provided to SEA Electric customers on the road at “Ampol forecourts, at destinations and solutions at the workplace”. The companies also intend to reduce range anxiety for businesses who are eyeing the possibility of integrating electric trucks into their fleets to reduce their emissions.

James Myatt, Ampol’s General Manager, Energy said that the company is “evolving to provide a range of fast and reliable charging solutions”.

“We know our business customers are looking for lower emissions solutions and want to ensure their investment in commercial electric vehicles can be supported with efficient and reliable charging technologies,” said Mr. Myatt.

“Ampol is committed to developing an open access national charging network as well as home and business charging solutions to ensure vehicles can be on the road whenever needed,” Mr. Myatt added.

Meanwhile, Bill Gillespie, SEA Electric President, Asia Pacific Region said they are proud to lead Australia in its transition to sustainable transport.

“Through this collaboration, we are shining a light on the fact that electric powered truck fleets can be operationally flexible by accessing convenient charging infrastructure through the AmpCharge network,” said Mr. Gillespie.

“At SEA Electric, we are building an entire customer led ecosystem to simplify the transition to electrification, with a SEA Electric trained national dealer network for sales and service, full factory warranty, 24/7 support and roadside assistance, and a range of charging options at [the] base or on the road.”
