Last Mile Mobile Fueling Leader, Filld, Announces Consumer Service in Washington DC
Secures $15 Million In Series B Funding,
Co-led by Parkland Fuel Corporation And Calibrate Ventures
Filld, the last mile mobile fueling company, announced today that it will begin consumer service in the Washington, D.C. metro area, where the company already provides commercial and fleet mobile fueling for partners like Daimler’s car2go (the largest one-way carsharing service in North America, with over one million members in the U.S. and Canada). This flexible, safe, scalable last mile infrastructure company delivers fuel to customers’ vehicles, so they never have to stop for gas again. Filld trucks follow algorithmically-optimized routes, delivering gas safely.
“Providing the environment to build a sustainable, community-driven infrastructure for urban transportation is vital and something we are committed to fostering for all District residents,” said Deputy Mayor Brian Kenner. “That is why we are thrilled to welcome Filld’s mobile fueling service to Washington, D.C. as we continue to support innovation and create jobs in our great city.”
The growing list of cities enjoying Filld signals the continuing customer demand for mobile fueling as traditional retail gas stations navigate changing mobility trends, such as shifting vehicle use patterns, and the rise of on-demand and shared vehicles, connected cars and autonomous fleets. Increasingly, consumers and businesses are demanding more flexible, cost-effective fueling services and, as market demands shift, Filld’s technology platform and equipment can easily transition to support alternative fuel and electric vehicles.
Filld also announced today that it raised $15 million in Series B funding co-led by Parkland Fuel Corporation (“Parkland”) and Calibrate Ventures with participation from previous investors, including Cendana Capital, Lucas Venture Group, Javelin Venture Partners and Hallador Investment Advisors.
Filld will use the funding to drive new market expansions, further extend services within existing markets, and enhance its tech platform and connected architecture. The company is rapidly hiring and has significant plans to ramp-up recruiting and training for new jobs across North America, from fleet mechanics to delivery technicians.
