Zeem Solutions Inaugurates Its First Transportation-as-a-service Depot for Electric Vehicles.

Zeem Solutions Inaugurates
According to Zeem Solutions, a fleet electrification company, the first profitable EV transportation-as-a-service depot has opened near Los Angeles International Airport. The depot, which serves as a center for zero-emission vehicle services, is the country's biggest commercial EV charging station that supports fleets of medium-and heavy-duty electric vehicles.

The Los Angeles-area depot is the first of a chain that Zeem hopes to create around the United States to help fleet owners electrify their medium-and heavy-duty vehicles. The company holds and retains electric trucks, vans, shuttle buses, and other vehicles, which are leased to fleets of businesses for a fee that has to be paid once a month.

Zeem collaborates with local utilities and renewable energy sources to make sure that vehicles are charged with energy that is uncontaminated, trustworthy, and reasonably priced. Customers receive access to the cars, and daily charging and parking in Zeem-built and-operated depots, all for a monthly lease that is less expensive than possessing and operating a gasoline or diesel-fueled fleet.

“Zeem’s first fleet electrification depot is open for business. Our business model – Transportation-as-a-Service or E-Fleet-as-a-Service – combines the latest commercial electric vehicles alongside reliable chargers purpose-built for fleet use in a centrally-located depot. This model enables fleets to transition to electric vehicles quickly, easily, and affordably at a time when they are under more and more pressure to do so,”

-Paul Gioupis, CEO of Zeem Solutions.

He further shares, “We know that charging is the biggest challenge facing fleets as they transition to zero emission vehicles. Providing fast chargers alongside electric trucks and vans will allow our customers to switch from diesel vehicles to electric trucks and shuttles quickly, achieving cost and carbon emission reductions at the same time. Our vision at Zeem is to support thousands of zero-emission vehicles operating out of hundreds of depots like this around the country.”

The Zeem electric fleet depot at LAX comprise of around 77 fast charging ports, 53 Level 2 chargers, a comfortable lounge where drivers can rest and recharge in between routes, and the capacity to charge and store more than 200 medium- and heavy-duty vehicles on-site, with hundreds more available for opportunity charging. Tour buses, airport shuttles, last-mile delivery vans and trucks, third-party logistics, mobility services, ridesharing, and drayage operations are among the fleets now operating out of Zeem's LAX facility. Zeem offers opportunity charging for high-mileage fleets for last-mile delivery and rideshare services who need a spot to charge their vehicles, in addition to monthly subscription services.

Zeem’s new depot is an important resource that will allow us to offer our customers the high-quality experience of Hollywood and Los Angeles that they expect, while gliding along in the comfort of a high-tech, zero-emission vehicle, with zero noise pollution as well” said Kami Farhadi, Owner of Starline Tours of Hollywood. “We love the convenience and access to low-cost charging and fleet services, especially as we adjust to driving electric. It’s also valuable to our business to contribute to Los Angeles’ ecotourism and appeal to sustainability-conscious travelers of today and tomorrow.
