Global groups ABB and PACCAR will partner in order to provide PACCAR dealers in North America and Europe with advanced charging solutions for trucks. ABB’s charging systems help optimize fleet charging with high-power, quick charge breaks or lower power, load-managed overnight charging for longer haul routes and last mile delivery.
ABB and PACCAR: «A strategic and sustainable partnership»
The electric vehicles belonging to the PACCAR group (Peterbilt, Kenworth, DAF CF Electric and LF Electric truck models) require on-demand fast charging for the short dwell times of their fleet routes. «Pairing ABB, a global leader in fleet electrification, with PACCAR, one of the largest manufacturers of medium- and heavy-duty trucks, is a strategic and sustainable partnership that will accelerate e-fleet expansion and adoption as well as reduce carbon and noise emissions in the transportation sector», said Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility division. «Like PACCAR, ABB sees tremendous opportunity in electrifying the trucking industry and is committed to delivering safe, smart and sustainable electrification solutions for fleet charging».
«We are pleased to partner with ABB to bring this outstanding solution to our customers and dealers on a global scale», said John Rich, PACCAR Chief Technology Officer. «Customers will receive the industry- leading operating efficiency and environmental benefits of Peterbilt, Kenworth and DAF zero emissions truck models, combined with ABB’s market-leading EV charging technology».
Committed to sustainability
Both companies are committed to sustainably serving their customers as well as their own operations. All PACCAR manufacturing locations are ISO 14001 certified, and more than 80 percent are zero-waste-to-landfill, while ABB is progressing toward circular operations as well as carbon neutrality by electrifying its vehicle fleet, sourcing 100 percent renewable electricity, and improving energy efficiency across its sites by 2030.
