ACTON Acquires DUCKT to Provide Micromoblity Docking Infrastructure

Micromobility provider ACTON has announced its acquisition of DUCKT, a European leader in docking and charging infrastructure for electric micromobility vehicles.

ACTON plans to merge DUCKT’s docking products with its e-bikes and e-scooters to allow cities and operators to effectively deploy micromobility transport options on a large scale.

For micromobility to become a sustainable and safe transport system, micromobility fleets arguably need to be better organised within public spaces. DUCKT’s products can provide cities with the necessary infrastructure to meet the growing influx of vehicles, including precision vehicle tracking, connected networks for e-bike and e-scooter charging, and elegant parking infrastructure.

Acton acquires Duckt infrastructure
ACTON and DUCKT already operate in over 100 cities, implementing intelligent e-scooters and e-bikes along with connected docking and charging stations in cities like Paris, Ankara, New York, and San Francisco
Janelle Wang, CEO and Co-Founder of ACTON, said:

“DUCKT has built a solution that solves one of the biggest challenges facing micromobility today - building smart parking and charging networks. Combining our intelligent e-vehicle technology with their infrastructure in a single, connected platform puts us in a unique position in the market.”

DUCKT docking and charging stations are designed to be adaptable and sustainable. They can be produced with inbuilt solar panels or be connected to bus stops and street lights for a power source.

The merger is fuelled by an investment from EIT InnoEnergy, a leading innovation engine for sustainable energy.

Jennifer Dungs, EIT InnoEnergy’s Global Head of Mobility, said:

“The ACTON and DUCKT merger makes for a perfect growth story. Together, they really have it all – well-designed, high-quality vehicles, the software to manage operations cost-efficiently, broadly compatible charging and docking stations plus the experience and capacity for large scale roll-out. For any given city or corporate looking to plug an off-the-shelf micromobility solution into their transport offering, it does not get much better than this.”
