Holman & Schindler Elevator Corporation Talk Fleet Electrification and Custom Upfits

This episode of Fleet Momentum is sponsored by and created in partnership with Holman. 🤝


When it comes to electrification of commercial vehicles, there are a number of considerations beyond just the vehicle model — fleets must consider new strategies around spec’ing, upfits, and duty cycles. In this Fleet Momentum episode, Chris Brown, Bobit associate publisher, discusses these challenges in a real-world scenario with Gibran Lehmkuhl, head of purchasing & mobility for Schindler Elevator Corporation, and Ted Davis, senior VP and COO, manufacturing and distribution for Holman.  

Fleet Momentum videos are designed to shine a spotlight on key industry leaders, trends, and products for fleet management.
