ChargePoint and GATE launch hassle-free EV charging solutions to manage commercial fleets

Posted by Johann Nacario — April 3, 2024 — ChargePoint, a provider of networked charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), and GATE (Green and Advanced Transport Ecosystem), launched a collaboration which simplifies the fleet management and charging of GATE’s unique commercial EV rental offerings. The two companies will work together to offer bespoke charging solutions that directly address the specific needs of GATE customers. GATE was founded by Iveco Group to accelerate the transition to sustainable commercial mobility through an innovative medium-long-term pay-per-use rental formula.

ChargePoint - GATE EV chanrging solutionsThe collaboration represents a new segment and a new revenue stream for one of ChargePoint’s most innovative products. GATE will be the first commercial application of the software ChargePoint currently deploys with global passenger fleet providers and OEMs. GATE’s vision and foresight will apply the ChargePoint solution within its rental offer, helping meet their strategic objective of simplifying the transition to sustainable commercial mobility.

André ten Bloemendal, senior vice president for Europe at ChargePoint, said:

Our partnership with GATE will help more fleets to realize their e-mobility and decarbonization goals. ChargePoint has proven experience, which will enable this implementation at a faster pace across multiple customer applications and use cases. Together, ChargePoint and GATE will provide industry-leading infrastructure and technologies for forward-thinking fleets.

Roberto Mauro, head of Partnerships at GATE, commented on the new collaboration:

GATE is working on creating strategic partnerships that, by combining internal skills with partner specializations, accelerate the introduction of new technologies to the market for sustainable mobility. The partnership between GATE and ChargePoint fits into this context with a clear objective: to offer the best possible charging experience for customers, with solutions that are built on the specific needs of the individual user.

In the context of the collaboration, ChargePoint will provide integrated charging services to simplify the electrification journey for GATE’s customers. These ChargePoint services include consulting for the supply and installation of charging stations, technical assistance before and after sale, as well as software to manage the charging stations on an ongoing basis. The aim of the offering is to help streamline installation and operation of EV charging services, making the move to electric propulsion more attractive. The offerings are now available in Italy and will roll out across Europe in sync with GATE’s own operations.

ChargePoint’s extensive operating system underpins the variety of configurations GATE will offer its customers. For fleet managers, the software enables stations monitoring in real time, the automation of charging, and control of energy costs. The flexibility of the open system enables this whether the fleet charges with ChargePoint hardware, a third party solution, or a combination of the two. For drivers, the GATE eCharge Card enables customers to charge via access to hundreds of thousands of public charging points. Find out more about ChargePoint fleet solutions here.
