Prologis to build two electric truck charging hubs in Southern California
Logistics real estate specialist Prologis has unveiled two upcoming electric truck charging installations as part of its Prologis Mobility platform. The two charging sites will enable Performance Team, a national logistics company, to simultaneously charge up to 38 of its Volvo VNR Electric Class 8 battery-electric trucks.
Prologis manages some 1.2 billion square feet of logistics properties around the globe, which puts it in position to get into the red-hot field of electric fleet management. Prologis Mobility is a turnkey Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering that integrates energy supply with charging infrastructure, installation, operations and fleet management software.
“Fleet electrification is a major priority for our customers and, as part of our Essentials platform, Prologis Mobility offers a turnkey solution that simplifies the transition to zero-emission vehicles,” said Prologis co-founder and CEO Hamid R. Moghadam. “This unique offering allows our customers to focus on their core business while making progress on their sustainability goals.”
Prologis and Performance Team are already working together to install EV charging infrastructure in Southern California, where two large installations are up and running, energizing a total of 38 new electric trucks. The projects—one in Sante Fe Springs and one in Commerce—provide more than 4 megawatts of total installed charging capacity.
“Logistics real estate can and will play a critical role in the move toward a carbon-free transportation future,” said Henrik Holland, Global Head of Prologis Mobility. “Prologis is enabling the transition with a simple, fast solution for our customers’ electrification needs as they look to zero-emission fleets.”
