Charging solutions firm, Mer, has announced it will be collaborating with DX (Group) to help its fleet electrification.

Recently, DX Freight announced a first-phase launch at their Southampton and Warrington facilities of an initial £750,000 investment programme to electrify vehicles, devoted to one of its most important clients.

To support their ambitions, DX needed a charging infrastructure partner that could offer consulting, support, and aftercare as well as guaranteeing all electric vehicles are properly charged overnight, Mer has completed a thorough audit and inspections of all 87 depots as part of the consultation. This was done to identify any energy limits and provide advice on how to overcome them.

Mer has installed 7kW fast chargers from Alfen. Additionally, DX Freight will use Mer Connect, a back-office platform that provides complete real-time view of charger usage and status. Additionally, Mer Connect does routine health checks on each charge station and may potentially remotely resolve some issues without calling an engineer, minimising downtime.

“We are proud to support DX Freight in its transition to electric vehicles. We look forward to working with DX Freight expanding its charging network as its electric fleet grows, and to strengthening our relationship with the wider DX Group.” said Natasha Fry, Head of Strategic Accounts for Mer.

“Our vehicles are business-critical assets that are key to delivering the consistently high level of service, we provide to our customers. We therefore needed an EV charging partner who understood our business and wanted to support us, as we progress into a more sustainable electric fleet. Mer ticked all our boxes, and we look forward to working with them in the future.” said Paul Ibbetson, Managing Director of DX Freight.
