By the end of 2023, the online supermarket flaschenpost, which operates throughout Germany, plans to build charging infrastructure at all 33 warehouse locations where its delivery fleet of 1,000 electric vehicles can be charged and managed. The delivery service relies on fleet and energy management from technology company IO-Dynamics to plan the expansion and automate vehicle charging.
A sustainable delivery within 120 minutes: That is flaschenpost’s delivery promise. To ensure reliable and efficient delivery with the electric fleet, IO-Dynamics was already involved in the planning of the charging infrastructure. For flaschenpost, the integration of intelligent charging management is the second important building block for reliable e-delivery. With the intelligent charging management from IO-Dynamics, flaschenpost can avoid load peaks and gain an overview of the battery charge levels of the electric transporters and the status of the charging infrastructure. All charging processes are controlled and the transporters are automatically charged according to demand. Johann Olsen, Co-Founder and CEO of IO-Dynamics, explains the importance of the project for the transport and logistics industry: “Our partnership with flaschenpost is a good example of how advanced charging solutions can help companies achieve their electromobility goals. It’s about more than just charging – it’s about the entire ecosystem. With this project, we can prove that electromobility can be reliable and sustainable on a large scale, even for complex e-fleets.”
