Mack Trucks added two more charging service partners to its Turnkey Solutions program: InCharge Energy and Blink Charging. With these additions, Mack’s Turnkey Solutions program offers four charging providers, including Gillbarco Veeder-Root and Heliox.
The program eases the transition to electric vehicles by offering an end-to-end feet management service that covers infrastructure development such as charging hardware, software, site design, and more when bundled with the purchase of Mack's battery-electric vehicles.
“Our charging partnerships and the Turnkey Solutions program as a whole will enable customers to more easily manage the development and installation of infrastructure for the Mack MD Electric and Mack LR Electric vehicles,” said Ryan Saba, Mack energy solutions manager. “These strategic partnerships will provide customers with the support they require throughout the entire process, including charger uptime. This is a key differentiator for Mack since charging infrastructure continues to be one of the main barriers to adoption.”
Customers may select which charging provider they wish to use when they bundle their charging hardware and software with the purchase of a Mack MD Electric or Mack LR Electric, both of which utilize a 150kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system.
“Mack Trucks is focused on simplifying the transition to BEV for our customers to help increase the adoption rate of sustainable transportation,” said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. “We have our own team dedicated to e-mobility solutions, and through the Turnkey Solutions program, we’ve established a holistic program to support the charging needs of our customers.”
