The Project will deploy and operate battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and the install chargers, as well as deliver targeted financial incentives, training to prospective Owner-Drivers, and the implementation and analysis of commercial revenue streams capable of reducing the total cost of ownership gap between Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles and BEVs. 


ANC is committed to electrifying 30% of its fleet by 2028, and many of its customers have made public decarbonisation commitments and consider fleet electrification as an early pathway. Despite these commitments, and due to low margins and strong competition, end customers are reluctant to commit to contributing to the total cost of ownership (TCO) gap. 


The Project will deploy 112 BEVs (Cab Chassis’ and Truck’s) and install 112 x 22kW AC chargers for use in Last Mile Delivery (LMD) across Australia. It is expected that the Cab Chassis will be parked and recharged at drivers’ homes and the Trucks will be housed at depots. The BEVs are intended to be deployed to the ANC’s clients nationally.


The objectives for the Project will be achieved through the following Outcomes: 

  1. Building market confidence around the reliability of BEV deployment for the LMD industry by releasing an industry transition roadmap.  
  2. Confirmation of the efficacy of the AC slow charging model, to reduce the infrastructure costs associated with fleet electrification. 
  3. Incremental reduction of the TCO gap through the demonstration and validation of new revenue and cost reductions associated with BEV operation, compared to diesel vehicles

Additional Impact

Build marketing confidence in small business owners to stimulate investment in BEVs for greater returns on their capital and effort in last mile delivery.
