QUANTRON, the zero-emission electric mobility expert, has entered into a contract with TMP Logistics Group Ltd. and received an order for 500 class 8 trucks with an FCEV drive system. The deal was finalized at the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce (DGIC) and braced well by the German Embassy.QUANTRON offers Quantron-as-a-Service (QaaS) for the functioning of these vehicles, which are deliverable by 2024. QUANTRON is looking into consolidating zero-emission transport from third-party suppliers into its platform. It will then charge customers on a per-mile basis as per their Total Cost of Ownership9TCO).
Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG, while describing this deal, said, “With our contribution of 500 heavy-duty FCEV trucks, we support the $8 billion hydrogen program funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and are pleased to spearhead the effort to help businesses and communities across the country benefit from clean energy and hydrogen investments.”
QUANTRON sees huge potential in hydrogen solutions for heavy vehicles in the US market alone. This is because the TCO of EVs for commercial vehicles is far lower than ICE manufacturing costs. Research says nearly one-third of all class 4-8 vehicles will be electric within a decade. Hence, the data suggest that the agreement between QUANTRON and TMP Logistics happened befittingly.
