NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, is among the top industry leaders in transportation to partner with Volvo Trucks and California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for the Volvo Low Impact Green Heavy Transport Solutions (LIGHTS) project. As part of the partnership, NFI will be operating Volvo Trucks’ all-electric truck demonstrators in Southern California in 2019, which Volvo plans to commercialize in North America in 2020.
The Volvo LIGHTS project is part of a statewide initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen the economy, and improve public health and the environment. With a variety of smart technologies in place to monitor truck performance and maximize vehicle uptime, including remote diagnostics and geofencing, the project is estimated to eliminate 3.57 tons of air pollutants and 3,020 tons of greenhouse gases annually.
