Potential charge station placements based on present logistics activity
A significant fleet of electrical trucks is expected to be on the roads in Europe within a few years to curtail the CO2 emissions from commercial vehicle operation. A coordinated deployment of charging infrastructure is required to suc-cessfully roll out these vehicles.
The locations of future charging infrastructure should ideally be chosen as to optimally match current locations of longer stops for many vehicles. To identify such locations, an analysis of stop locations of current commercial vehicles on road in Europe is required. The aim of the present project is to identify and visualize such location based on detailed information on logistics activity collected by each OEMs fleet management system.
We analyse about 750,000 truck stop locations from about 400,000 trucks in Europe from seven OEMs.
