Picnic Delivers with EVs

Picnic, an online-only supermarket present in 200 cities across the Netherlands, Germany, and France, is using EVs for deliveries.

The retailer will use ChargePoint’s cloud-based fleet charging solution for their delivery fleet comprising of 2,300 proprietary EVs. 

The deal will allow Picnic to make full use of ChargePoint advanced software solutions, including charge management, range forecasting, and streamlined delivery route and schedule planning. The software gives Picnic managers full operational visibility, helping them understand their fleet utilization and stay ahead of critical issues. As a result, Picnic can better utilize their vehicles, prevent breakdowns and reduce operating costs.

Picnic vehicles charge via common electricity sockets. ChargePoint technology extends the same charge management capabilities it normally deploys on a range of externally EV chargers directly to the vehicle’s onboard charger.

“We continuously look for improvements of our vehicles, and smart charging is an important part of our efforts to further enhance the sustainability of our fleet,” said Joris Wolters, Picnic’s vehicle expert in a statement.
