Forum Mobility plans new charging depot for electric drayage trucks at Port of Long Beach

Forum Mobility, a California-based freight electrification infrastructure provider, plans to build a heavy-duty truck charging depot adjacent to drayage carrier terminals at the Port of Long Beach. Supportive funding for the project will be provided by Honolulu-based nonprofit clean technology investor Elemental Excelerator.

The fully staffed charging depot will offer 19 dual-port 360 kW chargers and six 360 kW single-port chargers, and will be able to charge 44 trucks simultaneously. It is projected to serve more than 200 trucks a day and is scheduled to be operational by the fall of 2024.

Forum Mobility’s first eight charging depots, which together represent the capacity to simultaneously charge about 600 trucks, are expected to commence operations over the next 10 to 20 months.

“The California Energy Commission estimates that to comply with the Advanced Clean Fleet and other regulations, California will need 157,000 medium- and heavy-duty chargers by 2030,” the company said.
