ABB is partnering with truck manufacturer PACCAR to provide its dealers and their customers with a range of charging solutions across its fleet operations in North America and Europe. ABB’s charging systems are designed to optimize fleet charging, offering both high-power, quick-charge breaks and lower-power, load-managed overnight charging.
All PACCAR manufacturing locations are ISO 14001-certified, and more than 80 percent are zero-waste-to-landfill, while ABB is working toward circular operations and carbon neutrality by electrifying its vehicle fleet, sourcing 100 percent renewable electricity, and improving energy efficiency across its sites.
“Pairing ABB, a global leader in fleet electrification, with PACCAR, one of the largest manufacturers of medium- and heavy-duty trucks, is a strategic and sustainable partnership that will accelerate e-fleet expansion and adoption,” said Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility division. “Like PACCAR, ABB sees tremendous opportunity in electrifying the trucking industry and is committed to delivering safe, smart and sustainable electrification solutions for fleet charging.”
“We are pleased to partner with ABB to bring this outstanding solution to our customers and dealers on a global scale,” said John Rich, PACCAR Chief Technology Officer. “Customers will receive the industry-leading operating efficiency and environmental benefits of Peterbilt, Kenworth and DAF zero—emissions truck models, combined with ABB’s market-leading EV charging technology.”
