NFI Will Reach 40 Electric Vehicles in Fleet by Mid-2020
Working with a range of manufacturers to implement electric vehicles into its operations, NFI received its first electric truck in August 2019 and will have 40 electric vehicles in its operational fleet by mid-2020, including electric yard tractors.
Partnered with Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) and Volvo Trucks in conjunction with California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), NFI is incorporating the electric tractors into its drayage operations in Southern California, where its distribution portfolio spans over 15 million square feet. As a Volvo Low Impact Green Heavy Transport Solutions (LIGHTS) program partner, NFI will be adding 10 lithium battery-powered forklifts, two electric yard tractors, and 10 automotive chargers. In addition to the West Coast, NFI offers an expansive drayage presence that spans major ports, rail terminals, and logistics hubs across the U.S.
