“Everlectric is proud to partner with our strategic investors, Sakhumnotho, who share our vision to be leaders in the future of mobility. Together we will boldly lead the transformation of the logistics industry to more efficient and greener electric vehicles ecosystems.
Globally there is fundamental shift to more sustainable business practice, including in logistics which to date have had limited viable options to decarbonise their fleets. The Everlectric value proposition is not only environmentally friendly but it returns significant efficiency and cost savings to the logistics value chain. Through an innovative bundling of commercial electric vehicles, a network of charging infrastructure, free electricity (fuel) and an enabling digital IOT platform, Everlectric reduces the barrier of adoption for our clients. Our team has rapidly garnered a large amount of interest from South Africa’s leading logistics operators, several of whom have committed to partner with Everlectric on the journey to rapidly electrify their commercial fleets.
Our relationship with Sakhumnotho supercedes the financial investment, we share a clear strategic alignment and vested interest in the transition to sustainable mobility. The Sakhumnotho partnership signals the first step towards a future that is ever-green, ever-efficient and Everlectric.”
