$STLA Ships First EV Freightliners to Sysco & Penske In the USA

Foodservice distribution company Sysco received its first series-produced battery electric Freightliner eCascadia, adding to the company’s existing private fleet.

Sysco’s first zero-emission Class 8 truck was presented to Marie Robinson, Sysco’s executive vice president and chief supply chain officer, at the Daimler Truck manufacturing plant in Portland, Oregon. The company’s first Freightliner eCascadia is expected to operate at Sysco’s Riverside, California site, which will receive additional eCascadias in the coming months.

“The Daimler Truck team has been a great partner to Sysco as we have worked to electrify our fleet and we’re thrilled to receive our first battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia truck,” said Robinson in a statement. “This zero-emission tractor is powerful, quiet, and importantly, very comfortable to drive. That means it’s not only good for the planet, but it will improve the driving experience for thousands of our delivery partners.”
