JETSI Battery-Electric Truck Ride-Along with Schneider


JETSI project partner, Schneider, is an industry leader in the transition to zero-emission commercial transportation with a battery-electric truck (BET) fleet of nearly 100 trucks.  

Driver and trainer, Marty Boots shares his experience driving battery-electric trucks from the prototype model to the production model of the Freightliner eCascadia.

“The biggest deficit everyone points to is the range of the batteries but with learning how to use the technologies that Freightliner has put in the trucks, you can extend that range,” said Boots. 

Schneider is deploying 50 battery-electric trucks at its South El Monte, California facility as part of the JETSI project—a landmark initiative to demonstrate strategies to successfully scale market penetration of zero-emission freight trucks.​
