TMC-e to help fleets deploy electric vehicles

The Miles Consultancy (TMC) has launched TMC-e, a data-led service that aims to take the uncertainty out of fleets deploying electric vehicles (EVs).

It examines four key areas for fleets; feasibility (identifying where electric vehicles would work well), ongoing analysis, domestic charging reimbursement and public charging payment and reimbursement.

It uses data collected through TMC’s online system, app and via telematics feeds to analyse the journey profile of each vehicle to identify where EVs could be deployed effectively. 

Once adopted, TMC can then also measure their impact and identify further opportunities to switch from ICE vehicles to electric.

TMC-e also covers electric charging reimbursement. TMC take in domestic charging data and overlay this with mileage data to reimburse employees for business mileage. It says it can provide payroll files to reimburse employees, or they can arrange a credit to the drivers’ energy bill, with reimbursement at the Government’s advisory electricity rate (AER) or actual cost.

It can also cover the payment of public charging on the electric highway via their charge card solutions. Alternatively, drivers can use TMC’s online system to reclaim public charging costs for business mileage.

Paul Hollick, managing director of TMC, said: “Our real-world data-driven solutions give fleets the full picture to take the uncertainty out of going electric. 

“Although there is a lot of desire to go electric, many companies are asking for support on where to start.  We help identify where EVs will work well and provide ongoing analysis to measure their effectiveness and highlight where else EVs could be deployed. 

“We also manage the reimbursement of domestic and public charging - giving fleets the confidence and tools to get their electric ambitions underway. 

“Existing TMC customers using mileage capture and fuel services benefit automatically from TMC-e.”

TMC says it is working with partners to provide an end to end service for EV deployment – from identifying the business’ EV goals to helping with the practicalities such as vehicle purchase/funding, buying/leasing charge points and employee on-boarding and engagement.

Virtual Fleet & Mobility Live 2020: The virtual fleet expo

Video: Fleet News editor-in-chief Stephen Briers and events director Chris Lester introduce the 2020 virtual event and give a preview of what it will look like.

The annual event was due to take place at the NEC, Birmingham on October 6-7 but as a result of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and after consultation with the visitor advisory board, Fleet News has taken the decision to hold an online event in November instead.

Among the exclusive features at the virtual event will be a special EV & Hybrid Showroom which will bring to life the latest electric models with interactive displays that will enable you to get up close to the UK’s best fleet suppliers.

Visitors and exhibitors will be able to communicate through live chat, participate in live Q&As, ‘visit’ branded booths, and find out about industry-leading technology solutions.

The decision to go virtual was made easier by the fact that around 40% of fleets already have, or expect to shortly have, a company travel ban that would prevent them from attending live events this year, while a similar proportion did not anticipate attending live events until sometime in 2021.
