Electrameccanica chooses Crane
Electrameccanica Vehicles Corporation, which manufactures electric vehicles, has chosen Crane Worldwide to ship cars from the factory in Chongqing, China to Los Angeles and Vancouver.
The Solo car has been designed as a high performance, commuter friendly single seater. Crane worked closely with CFR Rinkens to develop a top-of-the line racking system that would be instrumental in shipping multiple cars with little-to-no damage.
The solution involves strapping the cars into a container and providing a rack system that allowed six or seven cars to be shipped at once in a container.
“We chose Crane Worldwide Logistics because they showed great care and attention to detail for our shipping needs. They understand our specific requirements and the technicalities of shipping a sustainable vehicle,” said Henry Reisner, chief operating officer of Electrameccanica.
Electrameccanica is currently ramping up mass production of its SOLO electric vehicle at its Chongqing manufacturing facility in China for delivery of cars to customers in 2019.
