Comvoy.com, a marketplace for work-ready trucks and vans, has launched NuPropel, a new commercial vehicle-centric advanced fuel resource center to help work truck fleets transition to net zero and beyond.
NuPropel is a brand-agnostic clearinghouse of information that offers all commercial vehicle stakeholders a platform to share and compare topics related to advanced fuel vehicles, such as hydrogen and electric vehicles, and their benefits for fleets.
The resource center aims to provide up-to-date information, data, and analytics to assist business owners and commercial fleet managers in making informed decisions about their fleet’s future.
The launch of NuPropel comes when the lines between strategic, tactical, and operational decisions are blurring. According to a company release, with 65% of decisions being made today more complex than two years ago, business owners and commercial fleet managers face a complex challenge in deciding on the right approach to carbon neutrality.
Currently, three general criteria drive or limit EV and alternative fuel adoption:
- The size of the fleet. Larger organizations with larger fleets can afford to experiment more and expect to gain from the social benefits of “green branding.”
- The geography of the fleet. Extreme cold has a detrimental effect on EV battery performance, for example, and access to charging/alternative fuel infrastructure, while growing, still needs to be improved in many parts of the country.
- The intended use of the vehicle. For instance, current EV technology is unsuitable for hauling heavy loads over long distances, while urban delivery is a great fit.
NuPropel aims to simplify this process by offering trusted net-zero information that will help fleet managers be more efficient in their research and empower them to make better decisions for their fleet’s future. The resource center offers a checklist for EV adoption readiness, a national charging network link, and regularly published new content.
Founder and Chief Vision Officer of Work Truck Solutions, Kathryn Schifferle, said that Comvoy.com’s commitment was to continue to provide more than a commercial vehicle search platform with accurate pricing and detailed upfit configurations. “We are committed to delivering information, news, and data and are here to help lead the industry that powers 80% of the U.S. GDP into the net-zero future it deserves,” she added.
NuPropel is expected to be the go-to place for industry stakeholders seeking independent and objective information and data. Although sponsors will be added to help drive growth, they will be selected slowly and with great discernment.
NuPropel is a valuable resource center that can help work truck fleets make informed decisions about their transition to net zero and beyond. With trusted information and data, NuPropel is poised to be an industry leader in powering the U.S. GDP into a cleaner, greener future.
