Allstar Business Solutions has announced a new partnership with Allego Holding, a pan-European electric vehicle (EV) charging network.

The partnership means that Allstar’s on the road solution, Allstar One Electric, is accepted at an additional 348 chargers across the UK on Allego’s charging network. Allego is powered by 100% renewable energy.

Allstar has added 348 Allego chargers across 140 locations, of which 150 are fast chargers and 198 are rapid chargers, located across the South of the UK and London.

Paul Holland, managing director of UK Fuel at Allstar Business Solutions, said: “UK fleets are ramping up their adoption of EVs, so it is our responsibility to grow our network, making recharging on the road as simple and efficient as it is currently for petrol and diesel.

“This new partnership with Allego brings together our rapidly increasing EV customers and drivers with one of the UK’s leading electric forecourt operators. In addition, this will help us to offer greater access to charging points for drivers and help fleets accelerate to the benefits of an EV fleet.”

Additionally, Allstar welcomes 232 Shell Recharge chargers to its network across 86 locations, taking Allstar’s total network to more than 2,000 locations and around 5,700 chargers, including 3,506 fast chargers, 1,887 rapid and 8 ultra-rapid chargers.

Allstar recently formed a partnership with Zap-Map to allow customers to search, plan and pay for EV charging across the Allstar network.

Paz Sharma, region manager UK & Ireland at Allego, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Allstar Business Solutions to our network.

“Decarbonising transport and providing clean air to our cities is a collective responsibility, which is why we are pleased to partner with Allstar Business Solutions. Together we will work to provide greater EV network access to a significant number of EV fleet operators.”

Allstar has also launched Homecharge, a new payment solution for fleet operators that require employees to charge their business vehicles at home.
