In 2019, a group of green energy veterans converged to originate NewVolt, fuelled by the vision of a net-zero logistics landscape in Australia that benefits from our unique abundance of low cost energy.
Through relentless industry collaboration, we're steadily driving towards a future where electric trucks are the cost effective norm, not the exception.

Deliver it when the sun shines
We are motivated by our firm belief that Australia is uniquely positioned to benefit from the transition to zero-emission vehicles. An abundance of cheap renewable energy drives low-cost fuel opportunity, through a less complex network. By planning the evolution of the logistics industry, we can ensure benefit, and national energy security for Australians.
By forging strong partnerships with stakeholders across the industry, we aim to create a ripple effect of sustainable practices across the logistic ecosystem, amplifying positive change exponentially. Our goal is to collaboratively develop a ‘transition pathway’ that can generate value and benefits across the freight industry.
Pioneering change that drives benefit
We believe in leading the charge towards a cleaner, more sustainable logistic industry, reducing carbon footprints one electric truck at a time for the benefit of drivers, users, operators, communities and stakeholders alike.
