Shyft Group to provide 24/7 services to Blue Arc EV trucks

The vehicles will be available through dealerships staffed by technicians trained by Shyft's engineering team.

The Shyft Group signed an agreement with Amerit Fleet Solutions to provide 24/7 maintenance and support services for Blue Arc EV trucks across the U.S.

“We’re committed to keeping the customer at the center of all we do,” John Dunn, president and CEO of The Shyft Group said. “As we transition to EV technology, we’re focused on ensuring a seamless experience for our last-mile customers and drivers. Our comprehensive service model includes onsite dealer service, access to our Blue Arc EV Tech Support team, a proven parts ordering system, and now, Amerit’s 24/7 EV Fleet Maintenance program to minimize downtime and keep fleets on the road.”

Blue Arc EVs will soon be available through a select network of dealerships, each staffed by technicians trained and certified by Shyft’s Blue Arc engineering team. Complementing this dealer network, Shyft said its in-house tech support team—comprising over 30 certified technicians and engineers—specializes in vehicle development, validation and testing to maintain high service standards at all touchpoints.

Moreover, Shyft said its integrated service and parts solution ensures that high-quality parts are readily available, simplifying maintenance and repairs. Together with Amerit Fleet Solutions’ network of mobile technicians, The Shyft Group’s comprehensive support network helps facilitate continuous fleet operation and maximum vehicle uptime, according to the company.

The Blue Arc platform is designed for demanding commercial vehicle duty cycles. Tier 1 suppliers include Akebono, Bosch, Dana, Hendrickson and Modine.

The Shyft Group also recently secured an initial order of 150 Blue Arc EV Trucks from FedEx for its U.S. pickup and delivery fleet. During testing on last-mile routes in Memphis, Shyft said the Blue Arc truck operated 8-10 hour routes under challenging conditions, with temperatures ranging from 95 to 105°F.

REE Automotive, an automotive technology company and provider of full-by-wire electric trucks and platforms, reported its financial results and operational highlights for the three months ending March 31.

According to the results, the first quarter Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), calculated by subtracting total expenses from total revenue, narrowed by 29% quarter on quarter (QoQ) to $25.2 million compared to $35.2 million in Q4 2023 and narrowed by 12% year-over-year (YoY) compared to $28.6 million in Q1 2023. REE said the YoY decrease was mainly driven by operational efficiencies implemented, which reduced payroll and related costs and other operational expenses, as well as lower share-based compensation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by losses from remeasurement of warrants and financial expenses related to convertible notes as well as an increase in income tax expenses. The decrease compared to the previous quarter was mainly attributed to the increased non-recurring engineering development costs in Q4 2023.
