Karat Packaging orders 10 Tesla Semi Trucks

Although exact delivery dates are not available, Karat Packaging expects to add 10 Semis to its California fleet in 2022.

California-based Karat Packaging has put down a deposit for 10 Tesla Semi trucks to be delivered in 2022. This purchase is in line with the company’s plans to grow its logistics capabilities and to continue investing in environmentally friendly solutions.

Although exact delivery dates are not available, Karat Packaging expects to add the 10 Semis to its California fleet in 2022. The Chino, California, warehouse is a crucial location that receives most of the company’s imports and later transfers to the other four contiguous U.S. locations. Karat Packaging uses its own fleet to pick up products from the ports of Los Angeles.

With a focus on the next chapter of the company’s future, Karat Packaging CEO, Alan Yu, says that acquiring these Tesla Semis will “increase our ability to make deliveries with our own trucks, as well as grow the logistics side of our business.”
