Schneider, a premier multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, will soon begin taking delivery of 92 Class 8 battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia trucks (earlier post) at its intermodal operations in Southern California. The carrier had previously reported orders for 62 eCascadias. Now the company will deploy an additional 30 BEVs from DTNA. As a result, Schneider will have one of the largest electric fleets in North America, marking a critical step in the company’s efforts to operationalize zero emission vehicles into its truck fleet.
