NY-NJ makes first delivery with electric drayage truck and

572 Electric Drayage

 

The Port of New York and New Jersey has completed their first delivery by a zero-emission electric truck. Best Transportation delivered a 14,000-pound container from its Port Newark warehouse to Costco Wholesale in Monroe, New Jersey, about 36 miles away. The vehicle is the only commercially available zero-emission drayage truck and is powered by a battery pack that enables the truck to travel 125 miles per charge, with a cab that can carry a combined weight of 105,000 pounds. The delivery is the latest step in the port’s effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which includes replacing aging trucks newer, cleaner-burning vehicles.
