Gomez also expanded the program reach and success of the company’s charitable efforts through its Kids Around The Corner Foundation over the last two years to various new organizations, associations and affiliations in local communities.


“While the supply chain industry has been heavily affected in 2022, influential leaders such as Katerina, Elizabeth, and Jackie are proving that hard work, dedication and a commitment to navigating solutions for our customers open new opportunities and inspire other professional women in supply chain-focused organizations,” said Brian Holland, President and CFO of Fleet Advantage. “We could not be prouder of the accomplishments Katerina, Elizabeth, and Jackie have worked hard to achieve, and they are a significant reason why Fleet Advantage is a leader in promoting a more diverse workplace for stronger overall industry success.”

Miami Marlins Reduce Parking Wait Times With Genetec AutoVu Free Flow and Post Payment

Miami Marlins Reduce Parking Wait Times With Genetec AutoVu Free Flow and Post Payment



Improved parking payment compliance saves an estimated $300,000/year in operational costs


MIAMI, FLORIDA – MARCH 3: Ballpark beauty shot of loanDepot park in Miami, Florida on March 3, 2022.

MONTRÉAL, September 21, 2022—Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, announced that the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team has dramatically reduced parking wait times and improved parking payment compliance at its home stadium, loanDepot park, using Genetec™ AutoVu™ Free-Flow and the AutoVu™ Mobile Post Payment plug-in.

The high-tech stadium is located in a residential neighborhood in downtown Miami with a challenging roadway infrastructure and few mass transit alternatives. The resulting traffic and congestion on game and event days caused long wait times to pay and park in the stadium’s more than 5,500 parking spaces, frustrating fans.

By using Genetec AutoVu Free-Flow and the Mobile Post Payment plug-in, the Marlins dramatically reduced queues and facilitated post-payment for parking. Payment is collected before, during, or after games and events using the AutoVu Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin, via mobile parking apps or on-site stations. The software pushes license plate information to fixed cameras at entrance and exit points to validate compliance.

During games and events, cars equipped with AutoVu automatic license plate readers drive around the parking faciltities and scan license plates, which are cross-referenced with guest lists to identify people who have not already paid. They then issue a promissory note informing those guests that a parking citation will be issued in 24 hours if they do not pay for parking. Because they have the flexibility to pay after the event, fewer fans are actually fined under the new system. Parking payment compliance is approximately 97%, and the more efficient system saves an estimated $300,000 per year in operational costs.

“The Genetec solution removes the frustration of waiting in long lines, helping improve guest satisfaction by allowing fans to get into the venue quicker so they can enjoy the experience that much more,” said Mike McKeon, owner of Parking Partners, who helped imlement the program at loanDepot park as Director of Parking and Traffic for the Marlins.

The parking management system has also improved the flow of traffic by helping lot managers track occupancy, identify vehicles who have not paid, and direct drivers to open spaces. The system can even cross-reference license plates with those belonging to staff, match customers on VIP lists or season ticket members, and use this information to offer exclusive parking options to these guests.

Blink Charging and Veris Residential to Offer Haus25 Residents in New Jersey Access to State-of-the-Art EV Charging Stations

September 12, 2022

Blink Charging and Veris Residential to Offer Haus25 Residents in New Jersey Access to State-of-the-Art EV Charging Stations


Sustainability-Focused Luxury Apartment Building will be Equipped with 24 EV Charging Ports



Miami Beach, Fla. & Jersey City, N.J., Sept. 12, 2022  — Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, and Veris Residential, Inc., a forward-thinking, environmentally and socially conscious REIT that primarily owns, operates, acquires, and develops Class A multifamily properties, today announced the deployment of 24 of Blink’s EV charging ports at Veris Residential’s newly-built, sustainability-focused, luxury apartment high-rise Haus25, located at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City, NJ.

“Most EV drivers want to be able to charge their EV’s where they live and Veris Residential is helping them do just that,” said Brendan Jones, president at Blink Charging. “We are honored to work with Veris Residential to provide a valuable service to their residents and look forward to our continued relationship with them to bring more EV charging stations to other Veris Residential sites.”

As the only complete, end-to-end global EV charging provider, delivering advanced technology solutions for all EV customers—including consumers, fleets, businesses, retailers, developers, and municipalities—Blink’s unique owner-operator model provides customers and partners with industry-leading charging stations for every location and a 360-degree solution that they can rely on in a rapidly evolving market. By partnering with Blink to provide Haus25 residents with access to EV charging ports, Veris Residential is supporting its mission of being a responsible, sustainable, inclusive, and equitable member of the built environment.

“Veris Residential is thrilled to cooperate with Blink, an innovative provider of fast and effective EV charging solutions, as we continue to redefine environmentally-friendly living,” said Karen Cusmano, Senior Vice President, Head of Sustainability and ESG at Veris Residential. “As the first U.S. real estate company to sign the Climate Group’s EV100 initiative and commit to installing EV charging across our portfolio by 2030, partnering with Blink to bring these stations to Haus25 takes us one step closer to achieving our goal of increasing EV charging capacity for our residents.”

While studies have shown that up to 85% of EV charging happens at home, to date, a limited number of apartments and condominiums have offered such access to their residents. In light of the potential of providing EV charging to the estimated 80 million Americans currently living in multiunit buildings, Blink is seeking to meet a need desired by EV drivers while helping to move the U.S. forward in its decarbonization goals. Specifically, by offering the most flexibility in the industry, Blink’s personalized and strategic business models allow customers to achieve their goals, whether that means owning, partnering with, or hosting their charging infrastructure.

To this end, Blink has installed 12 IQ 200 dual chargers at Haus25, providing 24 charging ports for residents and visitors of the complex. Blink IQ 200, the fastest Level 2 AC charging station available, produces 80 amps of output that provide approximately 65 miles of charge per hour and is compatible with any battery-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. When fully implemented at Haus25, the building will deliver yet another best-in-class amenity that meets the environmentally conscious lifestyle preferences for today’s residents, as well as standards required to achieve LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Additional sustainable amenities featured at Haus25 include: SOURCE hydropanels, which use solar technology to harness water in the air; WaterSense labeled fixtures, which maximize water flow efficiency; bioretention swales, to collect runoff water and percolate the soil; and energy efficient power units which convert natural gas into electricity and heat while also providing on-site generation. The building is also completely smoke-free, uses enhanced indoor air quality measures, offers more than 37,000 square feet of garden and outdoor spaces and provides residents with access to Logical Buildings’ app that shares real-time energy usage and carbon footprint data to improve efficiency.

INF Associates, a turnkey EVSE installer and energy consultant, worked with Blink and Veris Residential to execute the installation of the IQ 200 chargers—capturing incentives for Veris Residential through PSE&G’s Clean Energy Future – Electric Vehicle (EV) Program and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities MUD grants—funding that was instrumental in developing an EVSE strategy for Haus25 and its residents.


About Blink Charging

Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW), a leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment, has deployed over 51,000 charging ports across 25 countries, many of which are networked EV charging stations, enabling EV drivers to easily charge at any of Blink’s charging locations worldwide.

PayByPhone Announces New Partnership with TransLink Park and Ride Lots Across Metro Vancouver


PayByPhone has partnered with TransLink to offer its mobile parking payment app at 5,500 parking spaces across all nine TransLink Park and Ride lots.

Further, drivers can opt to have text messages sent to their mobile phone reminding them of parking expiration. Drivers who prefer not to register for an account can begin a parking session by calling in to pay over the phone or pay with a Guest Account via PayByPhone’s app or website.

Beam Global Receives Sustainability Initiative of the Year Award

Beam Global wins for Flying on Sunshine world record, proving zero emissions aviation is here



SAN DIEGO, Sept. 07, 2022 — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced receiving the Sustainability Initiative of the Year award from the Business Intelligence Group in the 2022 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.

Beam Global set the world record for the longest flight in a production electric aircraft powered by off-grid, renewable solar energy, proving zero emissions aviation is here.

Starting in Fresno, the Pipistrel Alpha Electro aircraft flew across Central California with stops in Madera, Merced, Modesto and Lodi before following the same flight path back to Fresno. Beam Global partnered with Pilot Joseph Oldham, Founder and CEO of New Vision Aviation, to make the trip possible. EV ARC™ electric vehicle charging equipment was rapidly deployed at several airports, and in some cases relocated during the record breaking effort, to support the multi-leg flight, demonstrating that airports can support the electrification of aviation without construction, electrical work or large utility charges.

“This historic world record marked the start of a new chapter for zero emissions aviation while breaking down the barriers to rapid adoption of commercially available clean aircraft. Our products make airport charging infrastructure available now, ushering in a new level of aviation access for rural and suburban denizens,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “There are around twenty thousand public and private airports across the U.S. and we want to make clean, impact free charging infrastructure available to all of them.”

“We are proud to reward and recognize Beam Global for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”

“I’m thrilled Beam Global was recognized for our record-setting flight. It was a defining milestone for sustainable aviation and for establishing the Central Valley as a forward-thinking region for propelling the electrification of aviation ahead at an accelerated pace,” said Pilot Joseph Oldham, Founder and CEO of New Vision Aviation. “Our goal with this accomplishment was to raise awareness of the urgent need for more clean transportation options—and show the world that it is possible.”

Non-profit New Vision Aviation sees California’s Central Valley as an emerging innovation hub for the electrification of aviation and oversees educational programs for disadvantaged youth to inspire and train them for careers in clean aviation.

Currently, 61% of electricity from the grid in the U.S. is sourced from fossil fuels and 29% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from the transportation sector according to a U.S. EPA report on Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions. As the momentum behind the electrification of transportation continues to grow globally, this world record highlights the coming renewable revolution of air travel ushering in a new era of clean transportation.

About Beam Global
