Join our final FREE webinar with experts from Zenobē, an interview-style webinar on the operating and financing options available for the electrification of heavy fleet depots. This third and final session is on Tuesday 18th July and titled 'Bringing it all together – Financing and Operating '.

In this interview style webinar, experts from Zenobē and Logistics UK will be discussing, with participation from the audience, how adopting battery electric vehicles and infrastructure solutions requires a change in vehicle financing and operating dynamics.

This webinar will cover the financing options from vehicle and battery leasing,  and how the operating model for BEV, may need to change to partially offset the increased capital costs of the vehicle and its infrastructure.
