The unique strategic partnership delivers a comprehensive, turnkey electrification solution simplifying the fleet operator’s transition to EVs.
Holman, a global automotive services organization, and Electrada, a developer, owner, and operator of vehicle electrification infrastructure, announced a groundbreaking strategic partnership designed to help North American fleet operators accelerate, scale, and seamlessly integrate electric vehicles (EVs) into their fleet mix.
The partnership offers fleet operators a turnkey, fully capitalized (vehicle and charging infrastructure) fleet management and performance-guaranteed 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 a wide range of electric vehicles and Electrada will streamline the installation of the necessary charging infrastructure.
Additionally, key to this pioneering partnership, is the ability to provide a predictably-priced contract that eliminates the uncertainty of system performance, long-term energy cost risks, and capital investment requirements that often prevent organizations from adopting a robust fleet electrification program.
“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.
This innovative approach to fleet electrification is built on the premise that organizations should not have to navigate potentially overwhelming logistical challenges such as vehicle sourcing, charging requirements, and infrastructure installation while also bearing the financial burden of converting to clean electric fuel in order to reduce their carbon footprint and serve their customers responsibly.
ARI, who currently manages more than 1.9 million vehicles, Holman, and Electrada anticipate initial scale projects will begin early this year, aligning with the unprecedented market demand for this comprehensive, seamless approach to fleet electrification.
