ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. and Gatik announced a strategic partnership to develop electric infrastructure and integrated services for autonomous vehicles for ChargePoint and Gatik’s customers across North America, according to a news release.
Customers transporting goods in Gatik’s autonomous electric fleet will have access to ChargePoint’s knowledge in site design, interoperability validation, and investment costs.
“Gatik’s autonomous electric fleet is uniquely positioned to increase efficiency and reliability across the supply chain’s middle mile, and drive sustainability across critical operational metrics for our customers,” said Arjun Narang, co-founder/CTO at Gatik. “Our partnership with ChargePoint will ensure that we’re not only meeting intensifying demand for our product offering and service, but offering our customers access to national charging infrastructure and a wealth of technical advantages to support them in meeting their corporate sustainability goals.”
Gatik will also have access to a charging network and fleet-specific software that provides telematics intelligence configurable to each customer’s operations, as well as modular charging hardware to minimize upfront costs by reducing required electrical capacity.
Gatik’s partnership with ChargePoint provides customers access to Gatik’s 3-6 autonomous electric fleet and ChargePoint’s charging infrastructure and integrated services.
“Our partnership with Gatik will help more fleets to realize their e-mobility and decarbonization goals,” said Rich Mohr, Global VP, Fleet at ChargePoint. “ChargePoint has proven experience across multiple customer applications and use cases. Together, ChargePoint and Gatik will provide industry-leading infrastructure and technologies for forward-thinking fleets.”
