New guarantee program bolsters buyer confidence in a market flooded with unreliable EV chargers




NORWALK, Conn., August 11, 2021 — A U.S. manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations today announced its new hassle-free 90-day satisfaction guarantee program.

The program from Connecticut-based JuiceBar sets a new industry benchmark for reliability and buyer confidence in a market awash in foreign-made EV chargers.

The news follows on the heels of the Company’s July 1, 2021 announcement that JuiceBar’s EV charging stations meet ‘Made in America’ criteria, furthering the Company’s 12-year commitment to American jobs.

Customers can return their chargers for any reason or no reason, no questions asked,” said Paul Vosper, CEO of JuiceBar.  “We are so confident in the reliability of our “Made in USA” chargers that we decided to back it with a simple and hassle-free guarantee.”

The recent acceleration in EVs has led to a growing demand for public and private charging stations throughout the country.   The bill passed by the U.S. Senate on August 10th calls for $7.5 billion in charging infrastructure to be installed over the next 5 years, as well as millions allocated for EV school buses and other fleet vehicles.

“Making our JuiceBar chargers in the U.S. helps us control the quality of every aspect of our operations compared to all of our offshore manufactured competitors,” Vosper added.

Vosper said that the 90-day guarantee from JuiceBar comes with a 3-week shipping and installation commitment designed to meet the company’s growing customer demand quickly.  The company will also give a trade-in allowance for old non-working chargers.


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.

Conduent Transportation Implements Innovative Passenger Counting System on Buses and Trams in Italy

Conduent Transportation Implements Innovative Passenger Counting System on Buses and Trams in Italy



Load factor monitoring will allow for timely management of passenger capacity on vehicles to comply with COVID-19 regulations



MILAN, Italy, and FLORHAM PARK, N.J., April 19, 2021 — Conduent Transportation, a unit of business process services and solutions company Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), today announced the implementation of a new system in Bergamo, Italy, to monitor the maximum number of passengers on buses managed by Azienda Trasporti Bergamo (ATB) and trams managed by its associated company, Tramvie Elettriche Bergamasche (TEB). The system will enable ATB and TEB to easily comply with government regulations in place to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The regulations, issued by the Italian Ministry of Transport in response to the pandemic, limit the number of bus and tram passengers to 50 percent of the maximum capacity, as determined by the vehicle’s registration certificate. The automatic passenger counting system allows ATB and TEB to monitor the load, or “load factor”, of each individual vehicle in real time.

A Media Snippet accompanying this announcement is available by clicking on the image or link below:

“After the impact of the COVID-19 emergency on the area, the Bergamo community wants to return to normalcy. Public transport is an essential part of this restart,” said Gianni Scarfone, General Manager of ATB and CEO of TEB. “The maximum limit of passengers on board, currently set at 50 percent, allows citizens to travel in compliance with required health regulations. Conduent’s system is essential in order to allow us to monitor the load factor in real time and communicate appropriately with our customers.”

How the System Works
Conduent Transportation has installed automated, infrared-camera passenger counting devices on all ATB buses and TEB trams operating in Bergamo and the 29 surrounding municipalities, serving a population of approximately 380,000 residents. The infrared cameras count passengers boarding and disembarking buses and trams and feed this data into new, Conduent-developed software that reports, in real time, on the number of available seats to the driver’s onboard console and on bus external displays. The number of seats also displays on ATB and TEB operations center terminals, which show the location of each vehicle on each line, and at passenger stops. The data will also be exported to the ATB mobile app, making the information easily available to citizens.

“At Conduent, we recognized the importance and urgency of implementing this important system for the city of Bergamo. ATB and TEB are the first public transport operators in Italy to have a complete solution for the management of passenger counting and related information for citizens,” said Jean-Charles Zaia, General Manager, Public Transit at Conduent Transportation. “Working with ATB and TEB, we have developed a powerful tool that provides passengers with essential information to use the public transport service safely.”

Conduent Transportation is a leading provider of automated and analytics-based transportation solutions for government agencies. These solutions, spanning road usage charging, parking and curbside management, and advanced transit and public safety systems, enable streamlined and personalized services for citizens and travelers who use them. The company has been helping transportation clients for more than 50 years and operates in more than 20 countries.

Fleet Advantage’s Ludmila Manin Named Women in Trucking Association’s Top Women to Watch in Transportation

Fleet Advantage’s Ludmila Manin Named Women in Trucking Association’s
Top Women to Watch in Transportation

Manin Acknowledged for Encouraging the Employment of Women in the Transportation Industry by Women in Trucking Association




FORT LAUDERDALE (March 25, 2021) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in fleet data analytics, fleet financing solutions, and lifecycle cost management (LCCM) today announced Ludmila Manin, Remarketing Sales Associate, has been named Top Women to Watch in Transportation by the Women in Trucking Association (WIT).

This award celebrates top performers who go the extra mile to support other women and help to improve gender equality – at their own companies and/or industry-wide. Ludmila believes that education is key to expanding her influence in the transportation industry, particularly for women in a male-dominated field.

Ludmila has been an influential, successful female professional in the transportation industry for over six years. She plays a key role in the remarketing of used heavy-duty equipment into the marketplace through her extensive knowledge of customer service, banking and outside sales. Ludmila serves as one of the few females working in remarketing sales across the entire nation. In an industry that is predominately lead by men, the presence of women is even more sparse in sales-related roles such as Ludmila’s.

Ludmila has achieved several professional accomplishments in the past year that have significantly affected Fleet Advantage’s success. Just this year, Fleet Advantage experienced their largest remarketing sales year yet, where Ludmila is the only woman on the team. In 2020, she was the top salesperson, selling over $6.3 million dollars in off-lease equipment into the secondary marketplace. Ludmila played a direct and instrumental role in the financial integrity of the company and its clients.

“2020 was our largest year to date with over 1,500 off-lease vehicles,” said Francis Maloney, Remarketing Sales Manager at Fleet advantage. “We were in a low valued used truck market and Ludmila and our remarketing sales team has recruited, hired, trained, and implemented a consistent sales and marketing process. Our remarketing sales secured over $38 million with a robust sales pace that required communication, processes, and data input.”

Ludmila exemplifies Women in Trucking’s mission to keep women present and growing in the transportation industry. She serves as a voice for women in sales, a segment that is underserved by women within transportation. Her knowledge and dedication help to set her apart from her male counterparts.
