Kings Transport & Logistics and SEA Automotive has announced that the two companies have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for the supply of a range of SEA’s commercial Electric Vehicles (EVs).
Under the terms of the MoU, Kings Transport & Logistics (Kings) will provide orders for nine Electric Vehicles (EVs) comprising:
- 3 SEA Volta 15t GVM Electric Trucks
- 3 SEA Sturgeon 10t GVM Electric Trucks
- 3 SEA Musk Electric Light Vans
Kings will also work closely with SEA providing advice and assistance to optimise local content, specifications and cab configurations to deliver the most suitable product for their needs and the broader Australian and New Zealand market.
Kings Group CEO, Mr Tony Mellick said, “Kings Group is delighted to support and partner with SEA Automotive. Kings is committed to a carbon neutral policy for all company owned fleet and our agreement with SEA Automotive is definitive proof of our commitment to provide our customers with leading EV technology and to assist them to reduce transport based carbon emissions.”
SEA Automotive Executive Chairman, Mr Tony Fairweather said, “SEA Automotive welcomes the opportunity to work closely with an industry leader with King’s vision in bringing our commercial Electric Vehicles to the Australian and New Zealand markets. Commercial Electric Vehicles are now economically and operationally viable alternatives to conventional, diesel powered trucks. Continuing improvements in battery and EV technology cost and performance will only extend EV cost and environmental advantages into the future. SEA looks forward to King’s immense experience assisting SEA in finalising our vehicle specifications,” said Mr Fairweather.
“Over the next 12 months, Kings will work with our Customers and SEA Automotive to confirm the scale of the opportunity to replace, where appropriate, our current company owned fleet with EVs. We will also explore with our 1500 contractors and SEA proposals to simultaneously introduce EVs into our contractor fleet,” said Mr Mellick.
