Finding a Workable Model for Zero Emissions Fleets with Ron Hunt
By Kelly Barner | January 24, 2024
Despite the understandable enthusiasm around supply chain sustainability, there are many challenges associated with the fight to lower emissions: regulations, costs, and engineering, just to name a few. One of the challenges procurement will appreciate most, is the journey towards a workable business model that reflects today’s infrastructure reality and companies’ ability to invest.
In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Ron Hunt. Ron is the Director of Business Development for Forum Mobility, a company working to make it realistic for fleets to achieve their zero emissions goals without having to build capital intensive charging capabilities.
In this interview, Ron shares much of the advice he offers to carriers looking to partner with their customers as they pursue zero emissions fleets:
- Issues fleet operators may run into when evaluating the transition to zero emissions vehicles
- The current supply/demand balance between carriers offering a zero emissions fleet and shippers looking for them
- How regulations are driving this transition v. sustainability and ESG goals
