LAX Adds Commercial EV Charging
Los Angeles International Airport premiered a new commercial EV charging installation that supports medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicle fleets.
Fleet electrification provider Zeem Solutions announced the opening of the first commercial EV transportation-as-a-service depot. It is the first in a series that Zeem plans to build across the U.S. States to enable medium- and heavy-duty fleet owners to electrify.
The LAX electric fleet depot has 77 fast charging ports, 53 Level 2 chargers, a lounge for drivers and the capacity to charge and store more than 200 medium- and heavy-duty vehicles on-site and support hundreds more for opportunity charging. Fleets currently operating out of Zeem’s LAX depot include tour buses, airport shuttles, last-mile delivery vans and trucks, third-party logistics, mobility services, ridesharing and drayage operations.
“This model enables fleets to transition to electric vehicles quickly, easily, and affordably at a time when they are under more and more pressure to do so,” said Paul Gioupis, CEO of Zeem Solutions, in a statement. “We know that charging is the biggest challenge facing fleets as they transition to zero emission vehicles. Providing fast chargers alongside electric trucks and vans will allow our customers to switch from diesel vehicles to electric trucks and shuttles quickly, achieving cost and carbon emission reductions at the same time. Our vision at Zeem is to support thousands of zero-emission vehicles operating out of hundreds of depots like this around the country.”
