OneDock (image attached) is a universal charging and parking station for electric bikes, scooters, and other light electric vehicles. It’s the world's first mechanical and digital technology platform to enable universal micromobility tracking, docking, charging and sharing, whether privately-owned or part of a public/corporate fleet.

 

It provides a universal access point for charging and parking a wide range of electric micromobility vehicles, bridging the gap between different brands and types. Its implications for city infrastructure signal a sustainable and efficient future, providing seamless integration of e-bikes, e-scooters, and other light electric vehicles into urban landscapes. For users, it means no more hunting for charging points or worrying about running out of power mid-ride.

 

microFleet is a sister company of Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd, which has a longstanding contract with Australia Post for the supply and maintenance of e-bikes for its 2,000 plus national fleet. OneDock represents the culmination of years of innovation aimed at transforming urban transport on a global scale.

 

It has been estimated the global e-micromobility charging market will be worth $67bn by 2030, and microFleet aims to capture 2% market share worth $1.35bn.The company aims to install 100,000 smart docking points in Australia and 1 million globally by 2030.

 

The OneDock launch follows the company's successful acquisition of $500,000 backing from the iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre.

 

OneDock inventor and microFleet COO Al Reid said:

 

“The future of urban transport isn’t massive cars or sprawling highways. It's in efficient, green, and user-friendly solutions like e-bikes, e-scooters, and the infrastructure that supports them. With OneDock, microFleet is not just imagining this future, we’re building it.

 

“This is a golden export opportunity for Australia. We're envisioning cities where transportation is seamless, eco-friendly, and efficient.”

 

iMOVE programs Director, Lee-Ann Breger said:

 

“In a world where the transportation sector is undergoing rapid transformation, driven by both technological advancements and environmental imperatives, solutions like OneDock are not just desirable; it’s essential.”

 

“microFleet's OneDock is the embodiment of the future of urban mobility and transportation. It's sustainable, user-centric, and primed for global adoption. It's green, it's smart, and it's what cities need. This is a game-changer.”
