Navigating an EV future requires trusted partners

There’s lots of discussion these days about electric vehicles. Are EVs on the rise or decline? Is range anxiety a barrier? Will new fuels replace the need for EVs? These are just a few of the ongoing conversations in the media. So, what is the current reality?

 

If we look at the numbers, it’s clear that the industry is on a path to an electric future. A record number of EVs were sold in the U.S. in 2023. CALSTART reports strong uptake on the commercial side. There was a 461% increase in deployments of battery-electric cargo vans in the first half of 2023, and the number of zero-emission truck (ZET) deployments doubled. ZETs are now operating in every U.S. state. 

 

Transitioning to a cleaner transportation sector is an ambitious move that requires the efforts of many stakeholders. We simply can’t do it alone. Success hinges on assembling a network of reliable partners — vehicle manufacturers, sustainable solution providers, industry associations and customers. 

Building a partner network

Fleet sustainability is a team sport. The knowledge and experience of trusted partners can make it easier to overcome challenges and get to that goal line.

 

One of the big steps we have taken is forming the Geotab Sustainability Alliance. It’s a ready-made ecosystem of over 28 diverse solution and service providers dedicated to helping fleets increase sustainability, reduce risk and meet regulatory requirements. 

 

Alliance partners include: Electric Vehicle OEMs, Charge Management and EV Charging Station Providers, Fuel Management Providers, Route Optimization Partners, EV Fleet and Sustainability Consultants and Emerging Solutions. 

 

The sustainability journey isn’t easy. I invite you to look at the Geotab Sustainability Alliance and explore the available support. They’re ready to help you each step of the way.
