New partnership plans to push EV fleets across the UK
VEV stands out for its comprehensive end-to-end approach, spanning EV fleet strategy, site planning, and operations. From site electrification to charge point setup and EV financing, VEV also supports ongoing fleet management.
“Webfleet is a critical component of the electrification journey, from initial planning to in-service operational optimisation.
The data is vital for VEV to optimise the design of the EV transition to avoid costly over-specification of vehicles, chargers and depot energy infrastructure. When used in-service, telematics helps fleet managers understand vehicle, driver and energy patterns to bring data-driven intelligence and ensure the most cost-effective use of energy back at the depot.”
Mike Nakrani, CEO, VEV
“Our globally trusted fleet management solution, Webfleet, is helping businesses worldwide to achieve their sustainability ambitions, but we recognise that the solutions needed by fleets to successfully transition to zero emission vehicles come from collaboration.
A spirit of teamwork is a prerequisite to a net zero future. Bridgestone Mobility Solutions is delighted to announce this agreement with VEV, a natural partnership to help meet fleet decarbonisation needs with an extended ecosystem of data, hardware, infrastructure and services.
This partnership demonstrates how much the role of the fleet manager is changing. In addition to managing vehicle operations, EV fleet managers must be able to optimise energy consumption to minimise downtime, cut charge times and optimise battery health as a critical Asset.”
Taco van der Leij, Vice President Webfleet Europe, Bridgestone Mobility Solutions
This collaboration showcases the evolving role of fleet managers. Beyond vehicle management, they now need to master energy optimization.
The alliance focuses on aligning operational decisions with vehicle, charging, and energy considerations. This partnership exemplifies the shifting landscape of fleet management, where collaboration and data-driven strategies pave the way for a greener future.
