Volvo Trucks, Amply Power partner on electric truck charge management

Amply Power and Volvo Trucks North America say they are working on bi-coastal projects with two heavy-duty electric truck fleets.

Amply Power is collaborating with Volvo Trucks North America on customer programs to maximize uptime and cost savings for electric Class 8 heavy-duty truck fleets. Through ongoing collaboration, Amply Power and Volvo Trucks North America say they are working on bi-coastal projects with two heavy-duty electric truck fleets. A notable customer that the two companies are working with is Manhattan Beer Distributors, one of the largest beverage distributors in the country and based in New York City.

The Manhattan Beer deployment includes five Class 8 Volvo VNR Electric models operating on distribution routes with heavy payloads and return-to-base operations. The trucks have a range of 150 miles and a battery capacity of 264 kWh, needing approximately 70 minutes to reach 80% charge. Further collaborations will be planned and announced as Amply and Volvo Trucks continue to deploy more electric vehicles, the companies say.

The collaboration with Volvo Trucks comes on the heels of Amply Power’s partnership with environmental non-profit WattTime to provide customers with access to emission reductions data and the ability to automatically charge when greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generating plants are low. The company also recently unveiled a new project with Red Hook Terminals in which Amply will manage the charging for 10 electric yard tractors at its container terminal in Port Newark, New Jersey.
