Fleet electrification provider Zeem Solutions announced on March 31 the official opening of the first commercial electric vehicle transportation depot as a service near Los Angeles International Airport. The depot, a hub for zero-emission vehicle services, is one of the largest commercial electric vehicle charging facilities in the United States that supports medium and heavy-duty electric vehicle fleets.

The Los Angeles-area depot, located in the city of Inglewood adjacent to LAX, is the first in a series that Zeem plans to build nationwide to enable owners of medium and heavy fleets to electrify. The company owns and maintains electric trucks, vans, shuttles and other vehicles that are leased to fleet companies who pay a monthly lease to use the vehicles. Zeem works with local utilities and renewable energy providers to ensure vehicles are charged with clean, reliable and inexpensive energy. Customers have access to the vehicles, as well as daily charging and parking at conveniently located depots that Zeem builds and operates – all for one monthly lease that costs less than owning and operating a gas-powered fleet or diesel.

“Zeem’s first fleet electrification depot is open for business,” said Paul Gioupis, CEO of Zeem Solutions, in a press release. “Our business model – Transportation-as-a-Service or E-Fleet-as-a-Service – combines the latest commercial electric vehicles along with reliable chargers specifically designed for fleet use in a centrally located depot.

Fleets operating from the LAX depot in Zeem include tour buses, airport shuttles, vans and last-mile delivery trucks, third-party logistics, mobility services, ride-sharing and drayage operations. In addition to services for monthly subscribers, Zeem offers a charging opportunity for high-mileage fleets for last-mile delivery and ride-sharing services that need a place to charge their vehicles.
