XPO Begins Testing Electric Trucks


XPO Logistics is testing a Freightliner eCascadia in Oakland, Calif., the first step in what it expects is a lengthy transition from diesel-powered heavy-duty trucks.

The company will use an eCascadia, and later, a smaller Freightliner eM2, in a nine-month pilot program hauling cargo in the San Francisco Bay area.

“XPO will use this pilot to better understand how EVs will fit into our operations as part of our ongoing commitment to carbon reduction,” the company said in a May 5 statement.
