WattEV to Provide 20 Zero-Emission Trucks to Major Shipping and Logistics Partner

LONG BEACH, Calif. (December 6, 2022) – Today, Long Beach-based electric trucking and charging infrastructure company, WattEV, announced a contract with Junction Collaborative Transports (JCT), based in Long Beach, California. The agreement is for the supply of twenty (20) Volvo battery-electric trucks, as part of a full service program inclusive of charging.

JCT is a drayage trucking company operating in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The agreement with WattEV for twenty (20) trucks and employment of the Trucks-as-a-Service (TaaS) platform demonstrates their commitment to sustainability efforts company wide. Trucks will charge at WattEV’s charging network sites, including the Port of Long Beach.

Salim Youssefzadeh, Chief Executive Officer of WattEV, said “We are proud to be selected by a leading transporter that serves a diverse group of clients. The choice to use WattEV’s Trucks-as-a-Service platform for their transition to electric transportation brings our vision to life, helping major brands make the change to zero emissions in movement of their goods.”

WattEV is building a network of heavy duty charging facilities in Southern California that serves fleets of electric trucks. The carriers operating these fleets are committed to electrifying trucking operations to and from the combined ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, which receive some 40 percent of the nation’s imported goods.

“Working with WattEV will bring us closer to our sustainability goals while making our process more efficient. With their TaaS model, we are able to keep trucks on the road and keep customers happy” said Julio Torres, CEO of JCT.

“This is an exciting milestone for WattEV, JCT and the entire port community,” said Greg Battersby, Director of Business Development at WattEV. “This partnership will demonstrate that decarbonization is not only feasible, it makes great business sense and will position JCT to capture a rapidly emerging ESG-conscious market segment. We look forward to many future successes together with JCT.”

WattEV’s charging depots at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will be able to charge up to 38 trucks concurrently. Trucks traveling to and from the Inland Empire can also receive charging at several depots under construction in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. By using WattEV’s TaaS platform, large and small fleet operators can electrify their freight operations without the challenges of charging and procurement. The charging network and WattEV’s heavy-duty e-fleet will facilitate the zero-emission transport of goods to and from air and ocean ports as the network expands. “We’re building charging depots from the ports to Southern California warehouses, up the I-5 and Highway 99 corridors to Sacramento, and eastward along the I-10 and I-15 to Barstow, Blythe and neighboring states, and beyond,” said Youssefzadeh.
