Daimler Truck & Sysco sign MoU for 800 electric trucks

The US food delivery company Sysco has signed a letter of intent with Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) to purchase up to 800 Freightliner eCascadia electric trucks. The first eCascadia delivery is scheduled to arrive at Sysco's Riverside, California location later this year. The deployment of the complete 800 electric Class 8 tractors is scheduled to take place by 2026.

Sysco is aiming to electrify about 35 per cent of its US fleet by 2030. "This investment demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and responsible growth and will ultimately help us reach our goal of reducing our direct carbon emissions by 27.5 per cent by 2030," said Marie Robinson, EVP, chief supply chain officer at Sysco. After extensive testing of pre-production models with customers, Daimler Truck North America unveiled the production version of the Freightliner eCascadia just a few days ago.

Production is scheduled to start this year at Freightliner's factory in Portland in the US state of Oregon. At the time, the manufacturer reported that Freightliner had around 700 orders for the electric truck so far. northamerica.daimlertruck.cominvestors.sysco.com
