Uber Freight is working with Greenlane, which provides public electric commercial truck charging, aimed at boosting the development and installation of commercial truck-focused electric charging stations.

Greenlane is a $650 million joint venture between Daimler Truck North America, NextEra Energy Resources and BlackRock.

Data-Driven Development and Deployment

Greenlane will use data from Uber Freight's logistics network to get insights into the future development and installation of public charging stations on highways in North America. Uber Freight said it has $18 billion in active freight under management.

Uber Freight's network data will augment Greenlane's own data analysis to determine corridors that are prime candidates for early HD BEV deployment, charging infrastructure needs, and shipping lanes for electrification.

The two organizations will also explore using Uber Freight's technology to create in-app charging appointment scheduling, Greenlane charging stations locations, fuel card discounts, etc. directly to carriers.

A Nationwide Charging Network

The companies noted that the lack of an available, nationwide electric charging infrastructure for commercial vehicles persists as a barrier to increased HD BEV deployment by fleets.

Greenlane also announced it will build its first charging corridors in Southern California, followed by the Texas Triangle and northeastern United States.

In support, Uber Freight is unveiling a new whitepaper that shows the types of data-driven insights Greenlane will consider as it explores where, and when, to install its charging and hydrogen fueling stations.

Uber Freight used its own network data to better understand where charging stations are needed. Included in this analysis are findings regarding lane and region prioritization, facility enhancement recommendations for shippers, and more.
