What it takes to run your own fleet EV charging infrastructure

We sit down with fleets who have been running their own large-scale charging depots to understand the day-to-day workings of running this new infrastructure. How are these companies managing IT, from smart charging to carbon credits to firmware updates? What do you do when a charger breaks down, and how long does it take to get back up and running? What would you do differently and what is your best advice for fleets after the install to operationalize charging?
