Red Hook is a terminal, stevedore, and cross harbor barge operator with two facilities in the Port of New York and New Jersey complex.
A new venture
Unfamiliar with operating a fleet with electricity as a fuel, Red Hook realized the need for managed charging. In order to solve for fluctuating utility charging rates – which can shift dramatically hour-by-hour – Red Hook sought out bp pulse. By using our Omega software, Red Hook is now charging at lower-cost energy times. In their first full quarter of reporting, the fleet has reduced demand charges by 55% in peak months, resulting in an 84% reduction in overall fuel costs. This is made possible through Omega’s 99.9% platform uptime guarantee, allowing the fleet 24/7 monitoring and automated response to their fleet charging operations.
A seamless transition
bp pulse further eased Red Hook’s transition to electric vehicles by smoothly integrating our services with the fleet’s existing fleet management infrastructure and telematics. This allowed Red Hook to fully manage their charging operations in real-time while minimizing site upgrades. They now have visibility into each vehicle’s state of charge, schedule charging based on duty cycles, and track current and maximum energy capacity at the site. With this, Red Hook improved fleet readiness, starting 95% of their EV trips with a 99% state of charge.
