Electric trucks: largest order
Quality Custom Distribution (QCD) in the USA will be deploying 14 Volvo VNR Electric models on its Southern California last-mile delivery routes by the end of 2022.
For Volvo Trucks North America the deal represents the largest single purchasing commitment for electric trucks to date. The manufacturer will deliver the Class 8 battery-electric trucks to QCD over the next two years beginning this autumn.
QCD recently took delivery of its first Volvo VNR Electric. With this additional order, QCD’s total fleet of VNR Electric trucks will reach 15 by the end of 2022.
QCD provides custom distribution services to thousands of America’s most iconic restaurants and currently operates a fleet of 700 Class 8 tractors, more than half of which are Volvo VNR and VNL models. (ben)
