ParkOffice: New smart parking solution to curb stress of return to office launches

New smart parking solution to curb stress of return to office launches

 

 

Latest feature Spotshare from ParkOffice dubbed as ‘the stock exchange of parking’

 

 

 

UNITED KINGDOM: Leading parking management system ParkOffice has, today, launched its new solution, Spotshare. The feature, which has been dubbed ‘the stock exchange of employee parking’ will enable multitudes of companies to share, swap and trade parking spots based on demand. It is hoped Spotshare will help reduce the levels of stress associated with parking as workers across the UK continue to return to the office. ParkOffice is a leading parking management software solution that enables employers to optimise employee parking.

Park Office’s new Spotshare data-powered software relieves the pressures experienced by employees and companies in multi-tenant office buildings by allowing them to seamlessly share parking spaces when demand allows. The key benefits include reducing space wastage and stress through guaranteed parking spots for employees and enabling employers to offset the cost of parking. With hybrid working tipped as the way of the future, Spotshare identifies the requirements of other tenants on a supply-demand basis and enables companies to trade parking spots.

Spotshare is underpinned by ParkOffice’s ‘Newton’ a smart employee parking algorithm. Newton allows companies to automate all aspects of the sharing process from security to payments, and conditions about where and which spaces can be shared. To date, ParkOffice estimates it has reduced the amount of time staff spend on the road by at least 600,000km.

According to statistics from the Department for Transport, 68% of workers across Great Britain travelled to work by car in 2019. In addition to this, in the wake of the pandemic, research from the Office for National Statistics, 37% of individuals have opted to work from home at least one day of the week, up from 27% in 2019. 85% said they plan to adopt some form of hybrid work in the near future. What this means for offices and other workplaces is there will be days where parking spots remain underutilised, and others where they are in great demand.

Speaking about the launch of Spotshare, Garret Flower, CEO and Founder of ParkOffice, said:

“The launch of Spotshare comes at a time when commuters feel extremely anxious about returning to the workplace. Our new feature aims to relieve the headaches and stress associated with navigating workplace parking by encouraging companies within the same buildings to share spaces with others. Through Spotshare we hope to make the return to the office as stress-free as possible with minimum disruption to employees and employers.”

WattEV to break ground on California’s first solar-powered “electric truck stop” in late October

WattEV to break ground on California’s first solar-powered “electric truck stop” in late October

 

 

Announces $5 million CEC grant to supplement $6 million in private funding

 

 

LONG BEACH, Calif. — WattEV Inc., a company dedicated to accelerating the heavy-duty trucking industry’s transition to electric drive, announced it is set to receive a $5 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to build the state’s first solar-powered truck stop dedicated to heavy-duty electric trucks. Groundbreaking for the project is expected in late October.

The announcement was made at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo 2021 in Long Beach. WattEV, based in El Segundo, Calif., said the CEC is anticipated to approve the grant on Sept. 8 at its monthly business meeting.

“Our successful private-equity seed funding, in addition to the grant awarded for this project, are important milestones in our effort to deploy 12,000 electric heavy-duty trucks on the road by 2030,” said Salim Youssefzadeh, chief executive officer of WattEV.

“The electric truck stop in Bakersfield is the first step toward our commitment to help build the charging infrastructure network necessary to accelerate the heavy-duty trucking sector’s transition to electric drive,” Youssefzadeh said, “and to get more heavy-duty electric trucks on the road in California as quickly as possible.”

Partners joining WattEV and the CEC on the Bakersfield electric truck stop project include the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, the Central California Asthma Collaborative, Greenlots, Power Electronics and several others.

In addition to the Bakersfield project, WattEV is in the planning stages for similar projects in San Bernardino and Gardena in Southern California. Both of these electric truck stops will serve the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach and the warehouses fed by goods coming through the ports.

To enable these projects and support further expansion, WattEV has raised $6 million in private equity seed funding led by Canon Equity.

WattEV also has secured purchase incentive vouchers through the California Air Resources Board’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), initially for six VNR Electric Class 8 trucks from Volvo Group, and has applied for 24 more electric truck HVIP vouchers.

All told, WattEV plans to run its own fleet of 30 heavy-duty electric trucks by the end of 2022 to deploy under contract with several Southern California fleet customers.

The first fleet partnership is with Total Transportation Services, Inc. (TTSI), one of the leading freight transporters making the transition to EV trucks serving the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and with a presence in Bakersfield. TTSI will be offering electric transport freight services to shippers in Southern California on routes served by WattEV’s platform.

The partnership between WattEV and TTSI is an initial step toward reducing significant emissions of particulate matter, oxides of nitrogen and carbon produced by the thousands of mostly older, diesel Class 8 trucks registered to serve two of the busiest ports in the nation and the San Joaquin Valley.

To help accelerate the transition to electric goods movement, WattEV is developing an advanced software platform – trucks-as-a-service (TaaS) – designed specifically for the use of electric trucks within its network of charging stations on designated routes. The TaaS platform will help fleets and individual truckers meet requirements of shippers with sustainability goals while serving transporters with a viable economic model.

The TaaS platform will offer an all-inclusive, charge-per-mile formula that will enable a transporter to efficiently and cost-effectively use an electric truck to move goods normally handled with diesel trucks on the routes selected by shippers committed to clean air.

Said Youssefzadeh: “We’re delighted to partner with TTSI in the design and rollout of our TaaS software platform and deployment of our expanding charging network. We anticipate benefitting from their vast transport experience.”

About WattEV
WattEV’s mission is speeding up the transition of U.S. trucking transport to zero emission. It uses a combination of business and technology innovations to create charging infrastructure and data-driven workflow that provide truckers and fleet operators the lowest total cost of ownership. WattEV’s goal is to get 12,000 heavy-duty electric trucks onto California roads by the end of 2030, exceeding existing forecasts. More information is available online at www.WattEV.com.

 

Murphy Highlights Norwalk’s JuiceBar as “Innovator of the Month”

Murphy Highlights Norwalk’s JuiceBar as “Innovator of the Month”

 

HARTFORD–U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced that JuiceBar, based in Norwalk, has been named August’s “Innovator of the Month.” JuiceBar manufactures electric vehicle (EV) charging stations that are made and assembled in the United States with the mission of addressing climate change while building a national EV charging infrastructure. Murphy toured JuiceBar’s manufacturing facility in Oxford earlier this month.

To meet the growing demand for EV charging stations, JuiceBar has tripled its Connecticut workforce over the past year and plans to create at least 100 more engineering and advanced manufacturing jobs in the state by the end of 2022. The U.S. Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill also includes $53 million for over five years to support the expansion of an EV charging network in Connecticut.

 

“JuiceBar is the only American made and assembled EV charging station manufacturer, and I’m proud to recognize their leadership and the game-changing technology they’re building in Connecticut. Their innovation is a perfect example of how we tackle the climate crisis while creating good-paying green jobs. I look forward to seeing their continued growth in the state and impact on strengthening our national EV infrastructure,” said Murphy.

“JuiceBar is honored to be named Innovator of the Month by Senator Murphy,” said Paul Vosper, JuiceBar CEO. “We had the pleasure of showing Senator Murphy firsthand how JuiceBar is paving the way for Connecticut’s rapid expansion of electric vehicles. The number of charging stations around the country is expected to grow exponentially. JuiceBar is committed to continuing to create more jobs in advanced manufacturing and engineering and leading in innovative charging technology in the great state of Connecticut.”

JuiceBar recently announced its charging stations meet Made in America criteria in the Buy America provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Murphy’s BuyAmerican.Gov was included in the Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, and he also introduced the 21st Century Buy American Act and the American Jobs Matter Act earlier this year.

Murphy believes entrepreneurship and innovation are the building blocks for a strong economy. In the U.S. Senate, he has introduced two bipartisan pieces of legislation to incentivize angel investors to put more money into startup companies—the Angel Tax Credit Act and the Helping Angels Lead Our Startups (HALOS) ActStartup companies create an average of 2 million jobs each year.

MARSTON HOLDINGS HELPS COUNCILS ENFORCE CONTRAVENTIONS BY FOREIGN REGISTERED VEHICLES

MARSTON HOLDINGS HELPS COUNCILS ENFORCE CONTRAVENTIONS BY FOREIGN REGISTERED VEHICLES

 

 

 

LONDON, 31 AUGUST 2021 – Marston Holdings has introduced a new notice processing and enforcement service that will help councils to effectively enforce contraventions committed by foreign registered vehicles (FRVs) on British roads.  These vehicles are more likely to contravene traffic and parking regulations than drivers of UK registered vehicles as well as being less likely to pay the penalty charges which they incur.

 

This pan European debt recovery service for councils is delivered in conjunction with ParkTrade, a Swedish technology company that is part of Marston Holdings, which has established access to many national Vehicle Licencing Agencies (VLAs).  This relationship enables Marston to access European vehicle registration databases on behalf of clients to identify and process contraventions by FRVs as well as providing debt recovery services across Europe through Marston Recovery.

 

According to Mark Hoskin, Group Business Development Director at Marston Holdings:  “Many penalty charge notices are simply written off by councils as it is often impossible to trace the owners of FRVs and, even when they can be traced, there is no legal process by which they can be made to pay civil penalties. As well as protecting revenue for local authorities, this service sends out a message to foreign and UK drivers alike that the rules apply to everyone.”

 

Using this service, councils no longer need to write off all debt incurred by FRVs from many European countries for parking, moving traffic, clean air and low emission zone contraventions.

 

About Marston Holdings

Marston Holdings is the UK’s largest provider of transportation and enforcement services with over 5000 staff.  In addition to being the UK’s largest provider of debt and recovery services, the organisation comprises a number of market-leading companies including Project Centre, a streetscape design, engineering and landscape architecture consultancy and NSL, which provides parking enforcement services to the public and private sectors.  Other key parts of the group include Videalert, the leading supplier of intelligent traffic management and enforcement solutions and ParkTrade, the leading European provider of road tolling and charging solutions.  This combined expertise enables Marston Holdings to provide an innovative range of integrated design, build and enforcement solutions.

Going the distance: More Americans prefer homes that are larger and farther apart – ParkNews.biz Aug 24th – 30th, 2021

Going the distance: More Americans prefer homes that are larger and farther apart – ParkNews.biz Aug 24th – 30th, 2021

 

 

Americans are moving to the suburbs.  “Americans today are more likely than they were in the fall of 2019 to express a preference for living in a community where “houses are larger and farther apart, but schools, stores and restaurants are several miles away,” according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted July 8-18, 2021.”

Further, “This shift has occurred during the coronavirus outbreak and the accompanying period of telework, remote schooling and pandemic-related restrictions on indoor dining and other indoor activities. Today, six-in-ten U.S. adults say they would prefer to live in a community with larger homes with greater distances to retail stores and schools (up 7 percentage points since 2019), while 39% say they prefer a community with smaller houses that are closer together with schools, stores and restaurants within walking distance (down 8 points since 2019).”  You can read it all here: Aug 30, 2021 – More Americans now say they prefer a community with big houses, even if local amenities are farther away

Also, JVH wrote a blog apropos which is the headline this Monday on ParkNews.biz: Aug 30, 2021 – Strangely, Folks Prefer Larger Homes in the Burbs – JVH, Parking Today.  

John states: “It would seem that this would be good news for the parking industry, meaning that more travel, even short term, is on the horizon, and if the numbers stay the way they are, 85% of that travel will be by car and will need some place to park.”

Otherwise, there is a lot said about chalking tires and parking enforcement, due to Federal appeals panel ruling that Saginaw, MI violated her Fourth Amendment rights. The Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights is:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Since summer is coming to an end, we are looking forward to the Labor Day Holliday and our new September PT Issue dedicated to the NPA conference.  Check it out online September 1st.   And we will see you all in Las Vegas in less than a month.

Have a blessed new week.

SENATOR MURPHY VISITS LEADING US-MADE EV CHARGER MANUFACTURER JUICEBAR IN CONNECTICUT

August 27, 2021

 

 

SENATOR MURPHY VISITS LEADING US-MADE EV CHARGER MANUFACTURER JUICEBAR IN CONNECTICUT

 

 

 

OXFORD, Conn.– U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) toured Connecticut-based EV charger manufacturer JuiceBar on Tuesday and hailed the company’s decision to build a Made in America product with over 70% of its components made in the United States.

“JuiceBar is leading the country as the only manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations made and assembled in the U.S. I was glad to tour their facilities and learn about their mission to help build a sustainable future – and I’m going to keep pushing for more federal funding for EV infrastructure. Teddy Roosevelt became the first American president to publicly ride in an automobile when he drove through Hartford in an electric car 119 years ago. JuiceBar’s work will make sure that EVs are a part of not only Connecticut’s past but also our future,” said Murphy.

“We were honored to host Senator Murphy at our facility,” said JuiceBar CEO Paul Vosper. “We take great pride in being a Made in America manufacturer of the world’s fastest, safest, and most reliable commercial EV charging stations.”

With the rapid increase in electric vehicle sales and growing demand for EV charging stations, JuiceBar has tripled its workforce in the state over the past year and anticipates creating at least 100 more engineering and advanced manufacturing jobs in Connecticut by 2023.

The federal Infrastructure Bill, which passed the House on the same day as Murphy’s tour, calls for $7.5 billion in charging infrastructure to be installed over the next 5 years as well as millions allocated for the purchase of EV school buses and other fleet vehicles. JuiceBar recently announced that its charging stations meet Made in America provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“Senator Murphy’s support for federal investment in infrastructure will likely create the largest manufacturing boom in over a hundred years and will accelerate the transition to a low carbon transportation sector, critical to address pollution and climate change,” added Vosper.

“Building American jobs has helped us avoid the supply chain problems of many of our competitors,” Vosper said. “We can deliver our chargers within two to three weeks of an order in contrast to delays of 6 months or more with other manufacturers who source their components abroad.”

About JuiceBar
JuiceBar is a pioneer in EV charging. Since 2009 when its first charger was deployed at the Denver Airport, its chargers can be found in over 200 cities in North America. JuiceBar chargers are manufactured in America and come with a money-back guarantee in addition to its standard warranties. Its Level 2 chargers deliver charging speeds that are 60 to 250-percent faster than the industry’s standard chargers and include unique safety features and open communications architecture that allows customers to connect to the network of their choice.
