ALD Automotive has signed an international agreement with ChargePoint Holdings to create a new EV charging business in Europe for international and local corporate clients. 

The joint initiative aims to create a ground-breaking electric mobility service provider (eMSP) to accelerate corporate fleet electrification.

The new charging business will provide drivers of corporate fleets with one simple charging solution for easy access, payments and reimbursement reports. Drivers will access a charging network of over 485,000 charging ports across Europe, with a single dedicated app and charging card offering charging at home, in the office or on the road.

To control and monitor charging expenses, fleet managers will benefit from a consolidated reporting and invoicing solution that provides an overview of all charging costs. Public, workplace, depot and home charging costs will be provided in one single dashboard to enable further control over the full eco-system in a novel and holistic manner. This is particularly relevant for fleet managers who manage their EV fleets through multi-leasing companies and charging wall box providers.

This new EV charging business for fleets is a reinforcement of the partnership between ALD Automotive and ChargePoint who have been working closely since 2019 together to offer a comprehensive portfolio of bundled leasing and charging services.

The eMSP will be headquartered in the Paris region with go live expected in the final quarter 2023, starting in France and the Netherlands and followed closely by Belgium and Germany, with subsequent roll-out in eight European countries by 2025. The parties expect that the new business will be progressively extended to further geographies over time, as well as to small and medium companies, leasing companies and private individuals, in addition to carbon brokerage services in the medium term.
