Cubic Telecom delivers intelligent connected software to Arrival’s commercial electric vehicle fleet

Arrival is a technology company that designs and manufactures next-generation EVs which are tailored to the commercial market and priced the same as fossil fuel equivalents.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The EV market is poised to explode worldwide. Arrival needed to find a trusted globally connected software solution that could be embedded in their commercial electric vehicle fleet. 

This required a unique digital experience to enable Arrival’s vehicles to adapt to any mobility ecosystem. With plans to deploy tens of thousands of zero-emission EVs for Uber, UPS, and Royal Mail, the UK-based startup had to find ways to differentiate their offerings and capture valuable market share.
