Recharge chooses The Gordian platform to find the most optimized locations in the Nordics for a heavy duty vehicles charging network and support the customer journey for heavy transport.
Recharge is expanding its Nordic charging network to support heavy duty vehicles (HDV). To plan a future-proof network that secures the customer journey for shorter and longer heavy transport routes throughout Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, Recharge turned to The Gordian for the expertise and access to the charging infrastructure planning platform to support the decision process.
The Gordian platform provides Recharge with intelligence for transport electrification and identifying the best sites. Recharge’s goal is a network of locations that secures the customer journey throughout the three countries and accelerates the green transition in the transport sector.
“Recharge has more than ten years of experience with the complexities of planning charging networks since we have built the biggest network for all kinds of electric cars in the Nordics,” says Håkon Vist, CEO at Recharge. “However, charging for heavy duty vehicles has different needs. Gordian’s advanced business support system helps us analyze which of our current locations meet the needs for heavy duty charging and lets us identify where we should place new sites to maximize revenue and create the best customer journey for drivers of heavy duty vehicles.”
Recharge identified which locations in their network have the physical space to harbor trucks. In the planning platform from The Gordian, they can test and set different assumptions and analyze sites based on heavy transport route patterns, charging behaviors, and estimated battery status combined with locations and their conditions.
“For us, it is valuable to start with a map of the most optimal locations from a heavy transport perspective to be able to add or extract locations and, in seconds, see how it impacts the overall demand and the customer journeys. It makes it easy for us to create an integrated and optimized network for cars and heavy duty vehicles,” says Vist.
“We are honored to support Recharge, one of the biggest CPOs in the Nordics, with data-driven intelligence to strategically plan their charging network for heavy duty vehicles,” says Gyözö Giofalvi, CEO and one of the founders of The Gordian. “Using our planning platform, Recharge will find the best network of sites with the highest business potential that guarantees the electric battery operations of most transport routes and relates well to Recharge’s already extensive private car charging network in the Nordics. Through collaborations like this one, we contribute to the green transformation of the transport sector”.
