Together, Ryder, ABB, and In-Charge will make fleet electrification a simple, reliable, and streamlined process for Ryder’s customers that are looking to optimise sustainable and cost-effective solutions within their transportation network. This service will allow Ryder customers to safely and predictably expand their EV footprint, giving them access to the infrastructure necessary to run these operations effectively.

“This partnership allows Ryder to expand our leadership in the emerging technologies and electric vehicle space, and we are proud to be the first in our industry to offer this scalable, customizable, and innovative charging and fleet management solution,” said Ryder’s Chief Technology Officer for Fleet Management Solutions, Rich Mohr. “Through this partnership, our customers will have greater access to electric vehicle strategic planning and energy cost savings related to engineering and implementing charging strategies.”

Through this agreement, In-Charge will assist Ryder customers who are seeking to electrify their fleet with assessments of power capabilities and needs to implement charging infrastructure and provide guidance around entry into the EV market. ABB manufactures vehicle charging systems from 20 to 600kW serving public, transit and scaled fleet enterprises. Over the last decade, the firm has deployed more than 12,000 connected DC fast and high power chargers in 76 countries.

“Supporting an electrification program with seasoned fleet leaders like Ryder and In-Charge is a great fit for ABB’s experience deploying high power charging and safe grid interconnection,” stated Bob Stojanovic, Director of EV Infrastructure for ABB in North America. “Well-planned EV fleet programs offer tremendous upside for both economic and environmental progress.”
