Californian haulier receives e-trucks
Battery-electric CV specialist Peterbilt Motors has delivered ten Model 579EVs to Shippers Transport Express for immediate use as part of its drayage operations at the Port of Oakland, USA. Five additional Model 579EVs are scheduled to be put into service as part of its Port of Long Beach drayage operations in November 2021.
Shippers Transport specialises in the movement of goods from ports to local distribution centres. The fully integrated, battery-electric 579EV is optimised for drayage operations requiring two to three trips a day, of up to 80 km in length before returning home at night to recharge. With a DC fast-charger, the high-energy density battery packs recharge in three to four hours. (ben)
