Electrek writes that the three companies account for around 70% of the sales of trucks in the US and they constantly invest into the electrification of these transport solutions. ABB E-mobility and Voltera are among the other companies that support the initiative.
The name of the recently-formed coalition is Powering America’s Commercial Transportation (PACT) and it aims to overcome the obstacles that prevented the foundation of a solid charging infrastructure for medium and large transport vehicles. The coalition aims to find optimal solutions that can offer fast-deployment of rapid charging stations for commercial vehicles.
John O’Leary, president and CEO of Daimler Trucks, said that "through PACT, we aim to accelerate this infrastructure buildout so that fleets can adopt ZEVs at scale and we can all benefit from impactful emissions reductions as quickly as possible."
Daimler Trucks & Bus already implemented heavy-duty cargo transportation vehicles in Romania, as well, for some companies, such as PENNY and Cris-Tim, signaling an increased interest in the electric heavy-duty mobility and the fact that our authorities could start to focus more on developing a strong charging infrastructure.
