Prologis unveils California EV truck charging infrastructure

Prologis, a logistics real estate company, has unveiled two 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.

The projects – one in Sante Fe Springs and the other in the City of Commerce – provide more than 4 megawatts of total installed charging capacity.

  • Santa Fe Springs – Located at a non-Prologis-owned logistics facility, this project went live in late summer 2022 with the capacity to charge 16 trucks at once. Drivers have already clocked nearly 100,000 miles running short-haul trips in the Los Angeles market. Because charging happens right at the warehouse, trucks do not have to be diverted for fueling outside of their most optimal routes, saving time and energy.
  • Commerce Transport Center – The newest project to come online, the Commerce Transport Center, started operations in late October. The project is estimated to provide Performance Team with more than 4 million kWh of energy annually to fuel 22 trucks. Prologis Mobility managed the design and installation of the project, as well as the engagement with the local utility, Southern California Edison, greatly simplifying the process for Performance Team.

In addition to helping the logistics industry with its transition to electric vehicles, the Prologis Mobility team is working on other options of sustainable energy, such as hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles and Compressed and Renewable natural gas (CNG/RNG), the company says.
