Webfleet has entered into a partnership with new e-fleet solutions provider VEV to accelerate commercial EV fleet adoption.

The fleet management software provider announced their partnership with VEV, provider of end-to-end EV transition solutions from EV fleet strategy through site design to operation.

As well as initial site electrification, charge point infrastructure installation, and electric vehicle sourcing and financing, the company also supports ongoing EV fleet operations. vehicles, journeys and drivers.

Mike Nakrani, CEO of VEV, said:

“Webfleet is a critical component of the electrification journey, from initial planning to in-service operational optimisation.


“The data is vital for VEV to optimise the design of the EV transition to avoid costly over-specification of vehicles, chargers and depot energy infrastructure.”

The partnership aligns with Bridgestone’s E8 Commitment and its eight values – Energy, Ecology, Efficiency, Extension, Economy, Emotion, Ease and Empowerment – which serves as a guide for Bridgestone’s transformation into a sustainable solutions company.

Taco van der Leij, Vice President Webfleet Europe at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said:

“Webfleet is helping businesses worldwide to achieve their sustainability ambitions, but we recognise that the solutions needed by fleets to successfully transition to zero emission vehicles come from collaboration.


“This partnership demonstrates how much the role of the fleet manager is changing. In addition to managing vehicle operations, EV fleet managers must be able to optimise energy consumption to minimise downtime, cut charge times and optimise battery health as a critical asset.”

Webfleet telematics data intends to play a pivotal role in shaping initial EV strategy by informing vehicle journey times, duration, frequency and ‘return to depot’ behaviour. It will then enable fleet managers to track range, energy consumption and mechanical status in real time.
