Drake & Farrell and Eneco eMobility launch partnership to continue meeting growing demand for charge points

As an experienced logistics provider, Drake & Farrell helps Eneco eMobility with the storage of charge points and advice on how to deal with the growth and development of the flow of goods. In time, refurbishment and repair of used charge points will be added.

Continue to meet the growing demand for charge points

For Leonie Baneke, CEO of Eneco eMobility, the partnership with Drake & Farrell feels like a logical step. “As Eneco eMobility we want to unburden our customers completely and provide high-quality service in all areas. Especially now, when there is a rapidly growing demand for charging points, while more and more goods are in short supply worldwide. This step will allow us to stock our installers so that we can offer our customers the service and speed they have come to expect from us. In addition, Drake & Farrell is an experienced party to think with us about growth and development, and we can take sustainable steps towards a more circular business with the refurbishment of charge points.”

Support for an efficient supply chain

Drake & Farrell is also pleased with the partnership. “Our partnership with Eneco eMobility is fully in line with our strategy in the fast-growing e-mobility market. We have been strong in helping pioneers achieve their ambitions with logistics solutions for over 15 years. We are therefore excited to use our knowledge and experience for an efficient Supply Chain. From the correct configuration of new products to refurbishing and repairing the return flow,” said David Engel, CEO of Drake & Farrell.

Drake & Farrell was chosen by Eneco eMobility for its cultural fit, flexibility and scalability. Drake & Farrell is very positive about Eneco eMobility as a partner because the long-term, partnership-based collaboration aligns with the company’s vision for successful business and goal achievement. The companies will work together for at least five years.
