Fleet management solutions firm ARI and smart energy solutions firm Enel X will help pharmaceutical firm GlaxoSmithKline to transition its North American fleet to 100% electric vehicles by 2030.

The firms will provide a holistic sustainability solution to GSK, including the deployment of electric and hybrid plug-in vehicles and the installation of more than 100 charging stations. Qmerit will provide installation support.

Ari and Enel X will install JuiceBox smart charging stations and JuiceNetFleet IoT software to manage the EV fleet. The JuiceBox smart EV charging stations can be scheduled to use off-peak charging, delivering energy cost savings and reducing the strain on the grid.

"As a global science-based healthcare company, GSK knows the importance of protecting and restoring the planet's health in order to protect and improve people's health," said Henry Rogers, Director of Fleet, GSK. "Our goal is to have a net zero impact on climate by 2030, and the EV100 initiative aims to deliver benefits to both climate and health by reducing air pollution from vehicles. This is an exciting step for our commercial fleet that also provides a seamless experience for our people."
