Additionally, Blink has commenced deploying workplace chargers at multiple Volvo and Mack facilities nationwide.
“We applaud the efforts of Mack for their forward-thinking in advancing fleet electrification and we are excited to be selected as a charging partner in their Turnkey Solutions program, providing reliable and advanced charging solutions,” said Jim Nemec, Chief Revenue Officer at Blink Charging. “Building a dependable charging infrastructure is vital in keeping electric fleets operational and on the road.
