Meanwhile, Volvo and its commercial truck brands Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks will help identify which Pilot and Flying J travel hubs should be prioritized for charging infrastructure.
“Our VNR Electric customers, as well as other fleets looking to adopt battery-electric trucks, will have peace of mind that they can access a reliable and robust publicly accessible charging network strategically located along key transportation corridors,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America in a press release.
The partnership in question puts the Volvo Group and Pilot Company at the forefront of accelerating electrification and developing sustainable and reliable transportation solutions in North America for the next generation of battery-electric trucks.
Pilot alone operates a network of more than 750 travel centers across North America, spanning 44 US states and six Canadian provinces.
