Titan Freight Systems and Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) are joining efforts to advance sustainable transportation in Oregon by adding three battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia Class 8 trucks to their lineup. Three Freightliner eM2 medium-duty electric box trucks are scheduled to join the fleet by the end of the year.
The company said eCascadias will provide deliveries to businesses throughout the Portland Metropolitan area and the eM2s will be assigned to downtown Portland routes with each new electric vehicle replacing their conventional diesel counterparts.
“These heavy-duty electric trucks are a natural evolution in our journey to be a carbon-neutral transportation company,” Keith Wilson, president and CEO of Titan Freight Systems, said. “We now have a new zero-emission, lower operating-cost tool to help us get closer to realizing our sustainability goals.”
