Mike Albert Fleet Solutions recently announced a new fleet electrification referral program designed to pair customers considering electrifying their fleets with charge point providers, the company said.
The program, which includes new partnerships with ChargePoint, Blink Charging Co., and Enel X Way, will help fleet managers navigate the logistics of electrification, including charging infrastructure, navigating government incentives, financing, and ongoing support.
“Fleet electrification is far more complicated than deciding what EVs best suit the needs of your business,” said Chris Knosp, director of Fleet Electrification at Mike Albert Fleet Solutions. “Before making the leap, fleet managers need to think through charging infrastructure, driver reimbursement, software upgrades, and more. Our new Fleet Electrification Referral Program will help simplify the process, pairing customers with the industry’s best charge point providers for support and expertise from start to finish.”
ChargePoint is an EV charging network with more than 225,000 active ports under management. To date, more than 158 million charging sessions have been delivered. Customers will have access to the ChargePoint portfolio of fleet solutions, including scalable, integrated AC and DC charging hardware, fleet-specific software that provides charge management, and telematics intelligence configurable to each customer’s operations.
“Through this agreement with Mike Albert Fleet Solutions, more fleets will have access to ChargePoint hardware, software, and services that deliver lower total cost of ownership to fleet managers,” said Rich Mohr, VP of Fleet at ChargePoint. “Together, we’re delivering integrated, seamless solutions for fleets as they shift to electric vehicles.”
Blink Charging has deployed nearly 59,000 charging ports across 25 countries.
“We are excited to have been selected by Mike Albert as one of its go-to electrification partners. We look forward to providing their clients with a broad range of products, services, and innovative solutions, as well as the flexible business models that allow us to work with host locations and design a program that fits each specific location’s needs,” said Amy Dobrikova, VP of Fleet Services for Blink Charging. “We want to help businesses make the transition to electrification as seamless as possible, and we’re dedicated to the needs of each unique client.”
Enel X Way operates in 16 countries and manages nearly 430,000 charging ports worldwide and around 160,000 in North America.
“Mike Albert is one of the leading names in fleet management in the U.S., and we’re pleased to play a part in their electrification program,” said Chris Baker, head of Enel X Way North America. “We’re looking forward to making their customers’ transition to electric fleets simple and efficient.”
