Werner Incorporates First Battery Electric Vehicles Into Southern California Fleet

Werner Enterprises (NASDAQ: WERN), a premier transportation and logistics provider, is pleased to announce its first two Freightliner eCascadia battery electric vehicles, (BEVs), are officially transporting freight in Southern California. These trucks have zero tailpipe emissions and significant potential to reduce Werner’s carbon footprint.

“Working toward our sustainability goal of a 55 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2035, we’ve done extensive research to further evaluate how BEVs, particularly the eCascadias, will fit into our fleet,” said Werner’s Chairman, President and CEO Derek Leathers. “We look forward to providing real-world learnings and data from this opportunity as we continue exploring multiple options to deliver our freight in a more sustainable way.”

Charge duration times will vary depending on the type of charge and the number of trucks charging at the same time. To accommodate these requirements, Werner’s testing includes evaluating and building out a charging infrastructure at its full-service terminal in Fontana, California.

The BEV truck has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint by more than 20 pounds of carbon per diesel gallon equivalent, therefore, the reduction of carbon emissions could reach well over 150,000 pounds per year, per BEV.
