Frito-Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo,has announced completion of its first third-party EV shipment with trucking and logistics company Schneider National. Frito-Lay is the first company to contract transport on Schneider’s fleet of electric Freightliner eCascadias.

“By working with Schneider, we are taking an important step forward in our efforts to reduce value-chain emissions and move our snack products in a more sustainable way,” said PepsiCo VP and Chief Sustainability Officer David Allen.
