Tank und Rast becomes member of CharIN e.V.

Tank & Rast is the leading provider of catering, retail, fuelling and hotel services across Germany’s autobahn network, providing approximately 500m travelers a year with a comprehensive, usually twenty four hours a day, 365 days year service.

Tank & Rast’s network comprises circa 360 filling stations and circa 400 service areas with around 50 hotels nationwide. Given its commitment to customer service, Tank & Rast naturally ensures it keeps abreast of the latest developments in the automotive industry, most important of all perhaps being the continued rise of electro-mobility and the consequent need to develop nationwide recharging infrastructure. To this end, and in collaboration with the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure and other partners, Tank & Rast plans to add recharging stations to all circa 400 of its service areas by the end of 2017, representing a major breakthrough for long distance electro-mobility in Germany.


Depending on future customer demand and further technological advances, Tank & Rast stands ready to increase both the number of recharging stations and their recharging capabilities as needed.


Tank & Rast’s participation in CharIN e.V. will help the smooth rollout of fast recharging infrastructure across the autobahn network as well as ensure a common industry wide understanding of future trends and developments in electro-mobility.
