California logistics firm to add nearly 100 Freightliner electric trucks to its fleet

Logistics company Schneider has ordered nearly 100 Class 8 electric trucks for its intermodal operations in Southern California. 

After the first order of 62 Freightliner Cascadias, manufactured by Daimler Truck North America (DTNA), Scheider’s second order of 30 additional units brings the total to 92 Class 8 EVs.

According to the company, electric trucks are crucial in meeting Schneider’s sustainability goals of reducing CO2 per-mile emissions by 7.5% by 2025 and 60% by 2035. Schneider states that it has already achieved more than half of its 2025 goal by reducing per-mile emissions by 5%.

The new eCascadias have the potential to avoid emitting over 81,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per day compared to conventional ICE trucks.

“The integration of nearly 100 electric trucks is an important milestone for Schneider as we are moving beyond the electric truck testing phase to running an operation at scale,” said Schneider President and CEO Mark Rourke.
