EO Charging, a Suffolk-based developer of EV chargepoints and charging software, has designed, manufactured and installed a network of charging stations to power Amazon’s growing EV fleet in the UK.
So far, more than 800 EO EV chargers have been installed at Amazon UK sites, and hundreds more are set to follow.
For Amazon, EO provides charging hardware, software and operational support.
Not only has the company helped install physical charging stations at Amazon’s logistics sites in the UK, but it is also providing software and maintenance services for Amazon’s entire electric fleet in Europe.
This will support the addition of over 1,800 Mercedes-Benz zero-emission EVs to Amazon’s fleet in Europe, including over 500 e-vans for its delivery service providers and their drivers to deliver orders to customers in the UK.
Charlie Jardine, CEO and founder of EO, said: “For us, this collaboration has been an amazing opportunity. It has sustained our growth even during a pandemic, allowing us to continue hiring locally.
“But it will also offer us the chance to reinvest in our technology and continue innovating.”
Amazon has committed to powering its electric fleet with clean energy and to run its operations on totally renewable energy by 2025.
Nic Fyfe, EU director at Amazon Logistics, said: “Sustainability and our climate pledge goals are so important for the future of our last mile operation.
“Businesses big and small have played a key role in helping us transform our infrastructure. EO is one of them.”
