Nikola partners to launch clean energy supply chain initiative

PGT Trucking is using a Nikola Class 8 truck to ship low GHG intensity steel from Nucor's new plant to a nearby fabricator.

PGT Trucking recently delivered its inaugural shipment of low-greenhouse-gas steel via Nikola‘s Class 8 battery-electric vehicle from Nucor’s new Brandenburg, KY, plant to a nearby fabricator, as part of its sustainable shipping solutions program.

To commemorate this shipment of low-GHG intensity steel by a Class 8 zero-emissions truck, the companies welcomed team members, media and local officials to Nucor Brandenburg for a behind-the-scenes look at sustainable equipment and commodities. Attendees were then taken on a guided and interactive tour of the Nikola Class 8 battery-electric semi-truck and charging station.

Nucor has installed charging stations at multiple mills, including Brandenburg, to enable the use of battery-electric flatbed trucks. It is estimated that a short-haul delivery made using this truck will reduce carbon emissions by 40% and create a 20% savings in energy cost, per trip, the company says.
