TROY, Mich. – Electric Last Mile Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELMS; ELMSW) (“ELMS” or “the Company”), a pioneer of electric and intelligent mobility solutions for commercial vehicle customers, today announced an order from Glovis America, Inc. (“Glovis”), a global supply chain and logistics provider, for the ELMS Urban Delivery.
Glovis specializes in air, ocean, and ground freight logistics, and it plans to use ELMS commercial vehicles to support its industrial operations. The Urban Delivery will be used for materials movement and shuttling personnel on-campus.
Glovis operates at 18 ports across the U.S. and manages ocean transportation for over 800,000 twenty-foot cargo containers, three million cars, trucks, buses, locomotives, heavy machines, and 90 million tons of bulk cargo.
Glovis will also evaluate various configurations of the Urban Utility for operations like unloading cargo ships, transporting personnel, and transporting heavy materials at its ports. The Urban Utility is a Class 3 medium-duty commercial electric vehicle that has a unique cab-over chassis design, allowing it to be highly configurable. It can be outfitted with a dry box, flatbed, stake bed, and other customizable cargo options depending on customer needs.
ELMS sees the municipal sector, which includes ports, city public works, local governments, and national parks, as a major vertical for Urban Delivery and Urban Utility.
“Glovis’s large port and facilities presence in the U.S. requires an efficient commercial fleet with zero downtime,” said Ron Feldeisen, Chief Revenue Officer, ELMS. “ELMS is ready to help Glovis streamline fleet operations with our versatile, all-electric commercial vehicles and telematics solutions as it moves its logistics and freight operations to an electrified future.”
“It is extremely valuable to partner with ELMS in zero-emission industrial operations,” said Scott Cornell, Chief Operations Officer, Glovis. “In addition to the supply of purpose-ready vehicles, ELMS is profoundly engaged in the planning to support Glovis facilities operations.”
