M-26 Finished Vehicle Logistics Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) Supply Chain Handling Guideline: Now available at the AIAG Store, the new battery electric vehicle (BEV) guideline was developed by AIAG’s Battery Electric Vehicle Work Group – with volunteers from Ford, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, Stellantis, Toyota, and Volkswagen, among others – to address the proper handling of BEVs by railroads, car haulers, yard managers, port processors, marine terminals, and 3PLs.
Along with providing information on safety resources and government agencies available to assist service/transportation providers in the event of an emergency, the document addresses key questions, including:
- How many charging points are necessary?
- Is fast or slow charging more efficient?
- When – and at what level – should the cars be charged?
- Is there enough charging capacity during peak times?
From critical storage requirements for batteries and damaged vehicles, to inoperative vehicle instructions and handling instructions for extreme temperatures, this resource will provide valuable guidance for all parties involved in BEV handling. Click here to find out more.
