Pilot, Volvo Group to develop new truck charging network

Pilot Company and Volvo Group have signed a letter of intent to develop a high-performance charging network open to all battery-electric Class 8 truck brands to support fleet customers in their electrification and decarbonization journeys.

Chargers will be located at select Pilot and Flying J travel centers, which are ideally positioned along transportation corridors. Pilot Company recently embarked on a $1 billion “New Horizons” initiative to upgrade and prepare its locations for the future of travel. Chargers will be installed at mutually identified travel center locations based on customer needs, current and anticipated battery-electric truck density, and the availability of public funding to support infrastructure costs.

This collaboration between Pilot Company and the Volvo Group aligns with bipartisan goals to increase BEV charging capabilities and reduce the carbon footprint of the transportation industry, the companies say.
